1. With a flowy top
Yes, you can still wear your favourite flowy top despite wearing a roomy bottom. However, to prevent yourself from getting swallowed by your loose and baggy outfit, simply tuck in your top and this will accentuate your figure.
Choosing a top that is only flowy at the sleeves is a safer bet, but you should always tuck in your top to define your waistline.
