How To Style An Oversized Shirt 5 Ways

July 25, 2017 by Blair Donovan
shefinds | Style

From Tom Cruise’s notorious Risky Business look to celebs donning big graphic tees as dresses, the oversized shirt has become a staple wardrobe item and a trend that’s here to stay. And with good reason—you can’t find clothing items much cozier than an excessively large top. You might have your doubts about wearing a truly oversized top in public. Trust us—we did, too. But, it’s actually become totally acceptable and super easy to do. We rounded up 5 versatile ways to style oversized shirts, so grab your large t-shirt and button down collection.

Tucked Into Pants:

There’s so many different ways to style oversized shirts, but that’s one of the main caveats of wearing them—you have to actually style them. Sure, you can toss a big shirt on and call it a day, but if you want it to look office and errand-running acceptable, you need to take a few small and easy extra measures. For one, simply tucking in your top can make a world of difference. You don’t even have to commit to an all-over tuck. Tucking a small piece of the front section into your jeans shows off your waist and makes the oversized top look more outfit-appropriate.

With A Jacket Around The Waist:

As much as we love to wear them, oversized shirts can look frumpy if they’re not worn properly. Give your top some shape by tossing on a pair of jeans or leggings underneath and wrapping a jacket around your waist. You still get the comfortable fit of an oversized top, while still flattering your figure. Adding a jacket could make even the dingiest and worn-in of oversized t-shirts look street-style worthy.

With A Belt:

Another instant fix for a more form-flattering oversized top is simply adding a belt into the mix. You can use pretty much anything for this, as long as it cinches your waist. From an actual belt to a scarf to a piece of ribbon, you can accessorize your oversized shirt however you please.

As A Dress:

Fashion it-girls have been rocking dresses that resemble oversized tops, and we’re loving it. But instead of going out and buying one, you can make your own version if you have a big enough shirt. Ask your dad or husband for an old button down that looks like it could be dress-length, roll up the sleeves, and accessorize with a purse and some sneakers. You could win world records for pulling together an outfit so quickly. But, avoid any shirts that run too large or else they’ll swallow you up.

As A Jacket:

In search of a new, lightweight jacket for chilly summer days? Look no further than one of your oversized button downs. A light, oversized (and preferably patterned) button down makes the perfect layering piece that you already have on hand. You can skip out on buying a new seasonal jacket and save major dough! Keep your top underneath the button down more fitted and casual to avoid an overall baggy look.
