Posted by Jintao Du on
The oversized shirt trend is hot on our radar, and there is no doubt we are welcoming it with open arms! These tees are comfortable, cool and easy to move around in, or hibernate in if that's more your mood.
A tailored attire is awesome but some days all you want to do is throw on a baggy t shirt and call it a day. So if you are any bit like me, you’ve made the decision to hang up the curve-hugging designs (for now) and slip into something more chill. Below we’re sharing some cool tips, tricks and oversized shirt outfit ideas to help you tackle the comfy look.
What Is An Oversized T Shirt?
With the recent lockdown and WFH becoming increasingly popular, oversized clothes, especially the oversize tee, have seen a rise in popularity. We are ditching the pantsuits and going for loungewear and athleisure oufits that can be taken from couch to brunch.
A true oversized tee is wide and square in shape with little to no body definition. It falls below the crutch and has loose fitting sleeves. Typically, these tees fit about two sizes larger than your normal size and give a forward and edgy appearance.
How To Tie An Oversized T Shirt
Super versatile, an oversized tee can be worn in a number of ways. If you want to jazz them up, a good tie, knot or tuck can completely transform the look and give some shape. This is also super handy when wearing high-waisted bottoms! Here’s a simple 3 step guide to knotting your top:
1. Fold the back of the top
2. Gather the shirt at the front and twist the section into a spiral
3. Wrap it around and pull the end piece through
Play around with different styles and remember the knot doesn't always have to be centre!
How To Style An Oversized T Shirt
The oversized tee may be basic but it definitely isn’t boring! There’s loads of ways you can wear this cosy piece. Half tuck your tee into denim shorts and throw on sandals and a tote for a casual weekend look. You can wear it as a dress or knot it and wear it with a slip skirt for a feminine touch! During the cooler months, pop an oversized long sleeve shirt on with leggings and knee-high boots.
How To Wear An Oversized Shirt With Jeans
Truly a match made in heaven, the tee and jean combo is here to stay! This look is trendy, timeless and so comfy! Here is some of the ways you can wear this look:
- Tuck your tee into high-waisted jeans
- Wear it loosely over skinny jeans
- Knot your tee and wear it with boyfriend jeans
- Half tuck the tee for a slouchy look
Knot Your Average Tee
Add dimension and shape to your look by knotting a baggy tee and pairing it with a high-waisted skirt or baggy jeans. This look is super trendy and can be dressed up or down with a few accessories. We’ve chosen to pair our knotted tee with a flowy midi skirt and sandals for an on-trend look!
This is the perfect look for your next summer vacay! Grab a cute oversized shirt and tuck it into denim shorts for your next beach or shopping trip. Accessorise with sandals, sunnies and a tote bag to add to the chilled vibes.
