Denim pants are a staple wardrobe essential to own. So, a pair of mom jeans is also perfect for fashion week. It is a very comfortable outfit to throw on. Also mom jeans are versatile piece of fashion item. You can wear with a crop top or long sleeve shirt cinched with a belt for a chic look. Also, you can style it up with knitted sweater tucked-in with mom jeans. It is going to be a cold night coupled with the season of the year. Hence, opting for knit sweater or cardigan is perfect for warmth and stylish look.
Oversize outfit is unique fashion trend you can rock to GT fashion weekend. It is very comfy, versatile and Breezy. If you want to shop for over-sized outfits like tops or shirts, just go a size up from your normal size. I particularly love over-sized long sleeve shirts. To rock this look, you tuck the oversize shirt in pants while leaving a button or two from the top. It will give a sexy chic feel. Also you could know it at the bottom to a chic girly look. It is simple trend to rock and it is a perfect fashion week outfit. For a stylish look style your over-sized sleeve shirt with a pair of skinny jeans cinched with a waist bag as belt.
