Wearing a figure hugging outfit doesn't mean that every piece needs to be fitted. Layering is always a great idea to balance out a look and make it look more cohesive and interesting. For example, if you're wearing a top and leggings or jeans with a tight fit, you can throw on a loose cardigan on top. If you're wearing a skirt and a fitted top, go for an oversized blazer over them.
