No One Is Dressing Like This Anymore

Over the past several seasons, it's become quite apparent that fashion girls have abandoned overtly sexy outfits in favor of oversize, athletic, and menswear-inspired looks. Some would say that this shift began in 2010 when Leandra Medine introduced the "Man Repeller" concept. The (likely temporary) nail was cemented on the "sexy"-outfit coffin when Balenciaga and Vetements creative director Demna Gvasalia influenced consumers and other designers with his signature exaggeratedly oversize designs. The trend has naturally trickled down to fast-fashion brands, with Zara and H&M filling recent fall collections with oversize and ungendered styles.

Throughout the most recent fashion month, we couldn't help but notice one fashion insider after another donning covered-up, oversize, and masculine-inspired outfits instead of tight, skin-baring ones. Some brought feminine touches to their looks via accessories, color, and draped fabric, but not a hint of "sexy" was in sight.

To see what we mean, check out the outfits that fashion girls are wearing instead of sexy ones below, and then shop pieces to help you achieve the look.
