How to style an oversized t shirt is about balancing shape and proportion. An oversized tshirt can be worn as a base layer or can be dressed up or down to suit many occasions.
You can have your morning Americano, movie popcorn, and handbags, but everything is better when you are ‘larger’. T-shirts are no exception. There are many options for styling oversized t-shirts. How oversized you go, is up to you, and the spectrum is broad, spanning from a one-size-up-from-your-usual to long enough to pass as a tunic or a dress.
T-shirts are often associated with casual wear, but oversized tees can be worn in an evening-appropriate way. You don’t have to wear t-shirts with denim and jersey fabrics. Wear your tee with sneakers like trainers. Instead, pair it with luxe leather pants and silk slip skirts with a strappy shoe. This will give your look a unique edge by creating a high-low contrast.
There are many options when it comes to styling your oversized t shirt outfit. There are many options for oversized t-shirts, both from designers and direct-to-market brands. For a more casual look, you can size up on a regular shirt.
However, if you are shopping for standard t-shirts in a larger sleeve, there are many factors to consider. These include the body and sleeves length, shoulder seam, and neckline.
You can choose how big or small you want standard t-shirts to be. Cropped tees are great for larger sizes. They have longer sleeves, a dipped shoulder seam and are wider on the body. But, they won’t overwhelm your frame. This tip is particularly useful for petite people who can feel overwhelmed by large amounts of cotton.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with new brands and categories.
It can be fun to play with large t-shirts when you shop in the menswear department. Many menswear styles don’t have a fitted fit, so they are slightly looser. Try a few sizes to find the right size. Then, French tuck the t-shirt in your jeans and roll the sleeves up for an effortless cool look. This styling trick involves tucking your front into your top and leaving the back out. It draws attention to your waist without adding bulk. This styling trick is great for all shapes, but it’s also helpful for styling oversized t-shirts for plus sizes. The gentle half tuck creates a more hourglass silhouette and contours your body while lighting the edges.
OVERSIZED T-SHIRTS WITH BLAZER
A classic blazer is a great choice for pairing with an oversized shirt. Its sharp cut, structured shoulders and longline length will make even the most bulky t-shirts look smarter. Your blazer should be true to size to avoid overpowering your frame. As long as your t-shirt can fit comfortably underneath it, there shouldn’t be any ruching or excess volume.
If your t-shirt is too large to be worn over the shoulders, a robe is a stylish way to style your blazer. If you choose a bright or patterned blazer, make sure to match your t-shirt with the same color. You can also wear a black or white version underneath.
OVERSIZED T-SHIRTS & BOOTS
There are many styles and types of boots, so there is a lot to choose from. You could choose from a pair Doc Martens with a pointed toe, a block heel and elegant knee-high boots, or even cowboy boots, which are one of the most popular fall shoe trends in 2022.
Your overall look, length of your t-shirt, and personal style will determine the type of boots you pair with your oversized te-shirt. You can offset chunky boots and oversized t-shirts with a slinky skirt or double-down with straight-leg, dark-wash jeans.
To add more coverage to your oversized tee-shirt, consider wearing a pair of over-the-knee or knee-high boots.
OVER-SIZED TSHIRTS WITH SHORTS
Fashion’s love affair to the ’80s & ’90s was one major fashion trend 2022. It shows no signs of slowing down, with oversized t-shirts and shorts still very much in style.
A stylish way to wear an oversized shirt is with tight cycling shorts and ankle socks. This look is still in fashion today thanks to Diana. Balance is the key to this look, and the oversized shirt works well with the tighter bottom to balance the silhouette.
However, this doesn’t mean that form-fitting shorts should be a requirement. There are many options for utility, tailored, or longline city shorts. You can keep the balance by choosing a style that has a nipped in waist or a color block with darker colors on your top and bottom.
OVERSIZED T -SHIRTS WITH JEANS
Two pieces could form a sartorial brotherhood: oversized t-shirts, and oversized jeans. These fabrics are easy to combine for a relaxed and effortless look. This look is great for daytime or evening wear. Just make sure to take into account the silhouette, color and fabrication of each piece.
Daytime: Wear a t-shirt that is as big as you want, roll up the sleeves, and pair it with boyfriend jeans or wide-leg pants in light to medium washes (think stone to white).
For oversized t-shirts that are meant to be worn for evening events, you will need a more structured silhouette and darker colors. Your t-shirt should not be too big. For added luxury, look for silk jersey fabrics. Tuck your oversized shirt into a pair of tapered jeans or your best skinny jeans (in black or indigo) and finish it off with a pair trendy heeled mules.
OVERSIZED T -SHIRTS WITH TROUSERS
Wide-leg trousers are a popular trend. However, it can be difficult to choose what to wear with them. A billowing blouse can make a great shirt too formal and a good shirt too casual. But have you ever tried pairing oversized t-shirts with a pair of pants?
To make the entire look work together, choose a tee in the same color as your trousers. If they are patterned, you can pick one color from the print. Or, go neutral to tone it down. The fabric of your trousers will dictate how big you can make your t-shirt. A lightweight t-shirt with enough movement and movement to show your legs while you walk can be worn loosely over your trousers. If your pants are starchy or structured, you can opt for a shorter or cropped t-shirt to help you restore your figure.
OVERSIZED T -SHIRTS WITH SKIRTS
You can add a cool edge to your pretty skirt by wearing a t-shirt. A oversized tee shirt can make a skirt look more feminine and makes it feel more androgynous. High-waisted skirts are flattering. A low or drop waist will make it difficult to tuck your shirt in and can also reduce definition around the middle. This look will work best if you choose an oversized tee that is slightly relaxed. You’ll be able to keep your skin cool in the heat with this look.
You are unsure which color t-shirt you should wear with a printed skirt or a color-pop skirt. A classic neutral, such as a white or plain-colored t-shirt, is the best choice.
In terms of color I always recommend that my clients have an over-sized white t shirt in their wardrobes. It can be worn with anything, including jeans and midi skirts, and can be easily dressed up with chunky jewelry and lipstick.
OVERSIZED T-SHIRTS & TRAINERS
You can embrace the sporty look of an oversized shirt by pairing it with trainers. All you have to do is choose a side. When it comes to trainers, there are two types of fashion: super chunky and sleek. The former is best for long trousers while the latter suits anything above mid-calf, such as the best mini dresses. The trainers can be worn in both a casual or formal setting.
