How Do You Style An Oversized Shirt?
The beauty of oversized shirts is that they look amazing no matter how you choose to wear them! The relaxed fit is effortlessly chic whilst the floaty fabric is enough to make any fashion lover fall head-over-heels.
The key is to get the sizing just right. Unlike other items where you might buy a larger size to achieve the look, oversized shirts are designed with a relaxed fit in mind.

Whichever jean fit is your fave, wearing them with your oversized white shirt creates an effortless weekend look. Right now, we’re obsession’ over straight-leg cuts and high-waisted mom jeans. Style hack: avoid tucking your oversized shirt in all the way around. To unearth the fashionista in you, leave the back loose and tuck in one side at the front – #iconic.
With Smart Trousers
We’re calling it – oversized shirts aren’t just for weekends. Next time you’re heading to the office and want to mix up your workwear, try tucking one side of your shirt into smart trousers. It’s on-trend yet still smart enough for a formal workplace. Don’t like Mondays? You will now!
With A Skirt
If you think oversized shirts only work with trousers or jeans, think again! Using that same half-tucked technique, team your oversized shirt with a stylish mini skirt instead. The best part? It’s is oh-so-simple to wear!
When braving cooler climes, we’ll be picking designs in thicker fabrics like an oversized denim shirt to keep you snug. To keep things chic and cold-weather proof, step into staple boots and layer a longline coat.
If you’re planning a visit to sunnier shores, make sure you pack an oversized shirt in your suitcase to throw over your swimwear. Thin cotton styles make the perfect beach or poolside cover-up. They’ll also keep you cool and protect your skin from the sun – a win-win!
As A Dress
Want to keep things casual? We’re with you! An oversized t-shirt is an easy breezy way to tick off a laid-back look. If yours is long enough, go ahead and wear it as a dress. Cosy up with knitwear for weekend strolls and coffee catch ups with friends.
