How to Wear an Oversized T-Shirt

All of us want to look great in our stylish outfits, but some days you just don’t have the time, patience, or energy to put in the effort to put an outfit together. Sometimes all you want to do is wear big, comfy clothes and chill. Because comfy clothes tend to be big and cozy, it can be a little challenging to style them. You see these models on Instagram sporting these big coats, oversized t-shirts, roomy pants, and jackets as street style and many of us aspire to imbibe that style in our daily lives. But where do you start styling these oversized clothes?

Here are some tips to wear an oversized t-shirt:

  • Keep it simple

Oversized t-shirts can act as a statement piece in your outfit. Let the t-shirt be the hero and keep it basic with the rest of the items in your outfit. You could simply pair an oversized t-shirt with some leggings and a sling bag and be out the door.

  • Contrasting fits

Oversized t-shirts or clothes, in general, are loose-fitting and roomy. Pairing any bottoms of a similar fit may put off the proportions in your outfit and may not be flattering on certain body types. The foolproof solution is to pair oversized clothes with fitted pants, leggings, or jeans to get a casual look.

  • Tucking is key

If you plan to wear your oversized t-shirt with bottoms that have a flowy fit, tucking the t-shirt in would be a great option. It will flatter your waistline and bring shape to the outfit. Tucking in your t-shirt with fitted bottoms will also give a casual yet clean look as it will look like you actually put in some effort into your outfit.woman in a oversized t shirt

  • Layer it up

It’s a popular trend to layer many pieces of clothing to create an outfit. With an oversized t-shirt, you could layer a cute bralette on top to give it a cute and edgy street style look, or simply wear a denim jacket on top to give the outfit some structure. You could also wear a turtleneck top underneath your oversized tee to keep yourself warm and look stylish at the same time.

Some matching clothes with an oversized t-shirt would be skinny fit jeans, bootleg jeans, leggings, fitted denim skirts, etc. Oversized t-shirts are perfect for when you don’t want to put in too much effort in picking an outfit but also want to look put together and stylish.
