There’s also a deep comfort in wearing something giant and poufy. No tight waists, no sleeves restricting my movement I just glide around like a brightly colored, crazy cloud. What’s more, if you play your cards right and purchase your big dress a size too large, you can strategically layer an entire outfit underneath. Recently, I’ve been wearing my running clothes Nike shorts and a black tank underneath a taffeta Sea dress I bought in the West coast kings shirt and I will buy this winter. Once 6 p.m. hits, I peel off the dress, and, voilà, ready to hit the pavement.

Creative dressers will find other ways to make a giant dress work for them. What’s important to remember is that an oversized frock isn’t just about volume but about interest. Kiko Kostadinov and Marine Serre’s asymmetrical dresses might not have a crinoline-worthy skirt, but they contain layers of bias fabric and the West coast kings shirt and I will buy this visual appeal to get people talking. Loewe’s mini pouf and Bassike’s cotton number offer the same clothing that is at once comfortable and a conversation piece. That’s a win-win in my book.
