Remember those tiny clutches girls would carry? There were those tiny hippie sunglasses in assorted colors. There were even tiny dogs used as a fashion accessory. But now the trend seems to be in oversized items. From purses that look more like tote bags, to sunglasses that can swallow your whole face, women are using big items to make a bold statement. Maybe it’s because girls want to look skinny so they think that drowning themselves in their clothing and accessories will make them look smaller, but it is definitely a craze that has caught on everywhere. Below we will cover some of the biggest items being seen on women today. Warning: choose your accessories sparingly because unless you have a particularly large amount of surface area, you’ll run out of room quickly.
As you can see from Fashion Week photos, our ears have been forced to become as strong as branches to hold up the weight of a fruit-sized earring. It used to just be hoops that were seen in monstrous form, but now chandelier earrings and other variations have joined the oversized family of accessories.
Under the rules of airlines, a girl could have an excessively large purse and another carry-on even though the purse alone could serve as her suitcase. Why you want to lug something that large around on a daily basis, I am not sure. However, it is absolutely more convenient to carry a large, roomy bag than an itty, bitty one; as long as you leave enough time to search through that bag to find your car keys.
Sunglasses are used to shield your eyes from the sun so logically the bigger, the better…right? If you’re concerned about the tan lines from those things maybe we could just do away with sunglasses and try sun face shields.
You know that models are tiny, so if they start calling those outfits a size 2, the rest of us are going to be shopping in the plus size section in no time. It’s good to be comfy but what are you hiding under all of those layers of material?
The Kentucky Derby and the Royal Wedding have given us a fascination with hats. Large sunhats, adorned with feathers, flowers, and bows are showing up everywhere. Yet another sun blocker turned fashion statement, hats are a hot outdoor accessory this summer.
Overall, the shift from petite to “chunky” accessories has made its way into our wardrobe. Although we may not be able to find our bodies under all that stuff, our accessories will not be something you can miss.
