Roomy and super fluid silhouettes are on-trend. It can be fun to combine multiple items with volume in a single outfit to create plenty of of drape and flow. Of course, temper the volume of items by choosing a fit that you are comfortable wearing. You might want less drape, flow, volume and swoosh than what is shown here. Or maybe you want more. Choose the colour palette that suits you.

1. Swingy and Slouched

Combine a pair of white slouchy, cropped jeans with a drapey and swingy high-low olive top. If it feels too open and breezy, wear a camisole or tank top underneath, and tuck that into the jeans. Finish off the look with high-shaft brown booties and a bag to match. Choose sandals, loafers, mules, slides, or oxfords, if boots are too warm.

2. Wide and Defined

Here’s a matching set in a bright shade of orchid. It pairs wide cropped trousers and an oversized trapeze shirt with unusual cuffed bell sleeves. A pink belt reins in the width of the shirt adding a defined waist and therefore outfit structure. Dainty purple thong sandals are a pretty finishing touch. Add accessories to match.

3. Arty Kaftan

A pair of cropped black linen barrel pants is combined with a cropped and boxy toffee linen shell top. A gigantic patterned and short kimono-esque kaftan is draped over the top. It’s extremely lightweight, and collapses back onto the body, taming the volume. Black loafers match the pants, and work well with the earthy palette of the top and topper.

4. Swooshy and Shirty

If you enjoy a swooshy midi and midaxi skirt like I do, this might be your favourite. A patterned pleated skirt is combined with an oversized forest green tunic shirt. It’s semi-tucked to showcase some waistline in the front and side of the outfit. The sleeves are rolled to showcase forearm skin. Neon lime flatform sandals with ankle ties are the Summery choice of shoes. A colourful grasshopper brooch adds a playful touch. Add bag, watch and eyewear as desired.
