Fashion Tale F/W 2014: Oversized Comfort

We earlier found out that larger silhouettes, in combination with dazzle stripes are a “thing” for Fall 2014. Comfortable silhouettes are also shown without the bold color blocking. These humongous over-sized body unconscious silhouettes are just plain comfortable and are made even more snugglier by using soft and friendly materials.
