The Bad Guy singer, who is known for wearing loose-fitting leisure wear, has explained why she opts for baggy clothes in a new interview.

Billie Eilish has talked about the reasoning behind her choice of baggy clothes.

The 18-year-old singer-songwriter's popularity is at an all time high, after she took home a whopping five GRAMMY Awards at this year's award's ceremony and announced she's set to be the youngest singer-songwriter to write and record a Bond theme.

The Bad Guy singer is known as much for her distinctive vocals as she is for her style - opting to wear baggy designer leisurewear.

Why does Billie Eilish wear baggy clothes?

Speaking in her #MyCalvins advert for Calvin Klein in 2019 about her distinctive style, she revealed: "I never want the whole 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 seen what's underneath, you know? Nobody can be like, 'She's slim-thick,' 'She's not slim-thick,' 'She's got a flat ass,' 'She's got a fat ass.'

"Nobody can say any of that, because they don't know."

The starlet also told the US version of Vogue magazine, on which she appears on the cover, how her style first came about as a result of going through puberty early and feeling uncomfortable about her body.

"I just hated my body," she revealed. "I would have done anything to be in a different one. I really wanted to be a model, really bad, and I was chubby and short. I developed really early. I had boobs at nine. I got my period at 11. So my body was going faster than my brain.

"It's funny, because when you're a little kid, you don't think of your body at all. And all of a sudden, you look down and you're, like, 'Whoa. What can I do to make this go away?"

Talking about having the courage to look distinctive, the Xanny star added: "I just wanted to invent s**t, so I did. When I look back at myself at 9 or 10, my style was unbelievably terrible. But it was exactly what I wanted to wear. I was committed to it, I wore it, and I was happy."
