Skinny jeans are out and anti-fit is in! The 2020s have been championed by the rise of anti-fit silhouettes — a trend that reigned supreme, especially during the pandemic. Choosing comfort over style became the top priority for many, and such silhouettes soon replaced fitted clothes in our closets. Owing to the property that they don’t highlight the body shape, anti-fit clothing is a comfortable choice for many across age groups from the youth to the elder lot.
But the interesting thing is that even post-pandemic the trend has continued to live on and is no longer restricted to a niche market. The beauty of such silhouettes is that they’re androgynous in nature, and also synonymous with sustainability. And quite frankly, designers are giving these silhouettes an upgrade which makes them look fantastic from a purely aesthetic standpoint. If styled right, anti-fit clothing is an excellent choice for the street or a casual soiree. So stow away your body-hugging clothes and make way for comfort! Here we’ve handpicked some of our favourite homegrown designers who are championing the anti-fit trend.
Homegrown label Antar-Agni is known for its gender-neutral, street style, and anti-fit clothing. The newly launched collection Bhoot is no different. Staying true to the brand aesthetic it champions the idea of simplicity in every piece. The collection uses superior cotton for all pieces and the silhouette is chosen to flatter every gender and body type across the spectrum. Ujjawal Dubey, the designer says, “At Antar-Agni we have championed silhouettes and impactful elements that pay attention to comfort. With Bhoot we dial that up with the subtlety of signature monotones and efficient construction. We have added playful quilted accessories.”
