Billie has a unique style and now she has explained why she prefers to wear "big baggy clothes".

17-year-old Billie Eilish continues to take the world by storm. Her debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, broke records and she remains one of the most sought after young artists on the planet right now. The singer is also known for her distinctive style. In a recent #MyCalvins ad campaign for Calvin Klein, Billie opened up about why she wears "big baggy clothes" most of the time instead of the form fitting outfits you might find some of her contemporaries sporting.

In a candid video for the #MyCalvins I Speak My Truth campaign, Billie explained why exactly she dresses the way that she does. Her hit single "When the party's over" played in the background while she got real about not wanting people to scrutinise her body.

"I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, that's why I wear big baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven't see what's underneath. You know? Nobody can be like 'oh, she's slim thick. She's not slim thick. She got a flat ass. She's got a fat ass.' No one can say any of that because they don't know. "


Considering the way that young women in entertainment are judged and talked about when it comes to their bodies, Billie deciding to cut off that conversation before it even begins is pretty wise. Especially at 17.

Just because Billie wears "baggy" clothing doesn't mean she doesn't make bold and interesting style choices. A recent Louis Vuitton face mask and bucket hat combo worn to April's Billie Eilish Experience event proves that the singer is all about making interesting fashion choices and staying true to her personal style preferences.
