24 Swelling Fashions

From Overblown Fashiontography to Inflatable Couture

— January 26, 2010 — Fashion
Bigger is better, or so it seems in fashion these days. Gigantic, puffy sleeves, super-sized jewelry and humongous, feathered shoulder pads are just some examples of swelling fashions we've seen of late. Some magazines have even gone as far as digitally manipulating their photos to make the fashions look even bigger than they are!

Implications - With that being said, believe me you haven't seen anything yet until you check out how swollen and fantastic these fashions really are. Each of these over the top designs are the epitome of high fashion, and I'm sure many fashionistas would agree!

So, if you like it big--fashion, that is--take a look through this compilation of swelling fashions
