Yes, it does vaguely resemble a granny’s nightgown, but in true Instagram style, it has been transformed into a must-have item. Luckily, there is a broad spectrum of styles—from full-on florals by M.92 to a slightly less challenging horse-print mini by Ganni.
We’re not going to pretend it’s an easy trend to style, because many of us have become accustomed to not wearing items with such volume. I would recommend heeled, knee-high boots during winter (this’ll stop your legs from looking short), and barely there sandals come summertime with a colourful bag and statement earrings (think pearls or chunky gold hoops).
Ultimately, however, you have to own the tent-like proportions if you’re going to wear a smock this season. Hey, if the petite Olsens can do it (they’ve been wearing oversized clothes for forever), you can too.
