Eva Longoria And Gwen Stefani Look Pregnant In Oversize Clothes

Large Editorial Image


June 15, 2010

When petite stars Gwen Stefani, Eva Longoria and Rachel Bilson were photographed in these baggy, oversize outfits – we had to do a double take. They look more like homely, bag ladies than slim style icons.

What they did wrong:

If they wanted to try the oversize trend, they should have gone with either a baggy top or bottom – not both. In head-to-toe baggy attire they look like they’re hiding something. A baby bump perhaps?

Also, horizontal stripes can be unflattering, so if you must wear them (a la the nautical trend) pair them with a fitted jean – not a gaucho pant or cropped wide leg like Bilson.

What they should have done:

To avoid causing the pregnancy or weight gain rumors, they should have paired the oversize pieces with fitted, tailored ones, like in these three looks:

If you want to try the trend at home, go with a v-neck or scoop neck version like this sexy Monrow Oversized Tee ($72). The relaxed fit is flattering – especially in black.

Balance the oversize tee with a pair of skinny pants like these celebrity-favorites. The J Brand ‘Houlihan’ Skinny Stretch Cotton Cargo ($231) are the season’s most popular pant, and go great with the baggy black top.

If you want to try the loose-fitting trend in a pants version, pair it with a fitting top like this versatile Kain Label Pocket Tank in Many Colors ($80). The gray pocket tee is on-trend and very hip.

Wide leg trousers are a great way to wear the oversize trend while still looking incredibly polished. You will love these flattering Alice + Olivia Eric Pants ($254) – the white is a great base for summer outfits, and the trouser style will make you look like a Hamptons-goer (even if you aren’t).

Large horizontal stripes can be unflattering – but thin stripes are totally cute. If you’re craving a striped, oversize tee, go for this Just Female Oversize Stripe Tee ($42.27, down from $84.55). You will love the pocket on this comfy style.

Rather than pairing a striped tee with rolled up baggy pants like Bilson, pair it with black treggings for a more polished, yet still comfortable look. You will love these Silence & Noise Black Crinkle Jegging ($54).
