How to Style an Oversized Shirt

Any piece that combines comfort and style is an absolute yes from us, and the oversized shirt meets the brief perfectly. This wardrobe staple comes in a vast variety of styles, fabrics and silhouettes, meaning there’s an oversized shirt out there to suit any occasion, unique style and preferred fit. 

From breezy linen that is a must have for summer days spent relaxing at your favourite beach, comfortable co-ords that can be dressed up or down and statement printed pieces with a touch of bohemian luxury, we’ve created a list of our favourite ways to style an oversized shirt.

With a Skirt or Shorts

If you’ve been hesitant about delving into the oversized shirt trend because you fear it might be unflattering or drown your figure, pair it with a mini skirt or shorts. Perfectly suited for warmer days, this combination creates the illusion of an elongated figure and shows a little extra skin while maintaining an overall modest look. 

For a casual fit, slip on a pair of leather sandals and delicate gold jewellery or add your favourite pair of heeled western style boots to dress things up.

Over Swim

Ticking all the boxes for versatility, wearability and style, an oversized shirt that pairs with your favourite swimwear is a must for your next vacation. Coordinate prints and colour palettes for an effortlessly put together look or opt for a basic white or neutral shirt that will match perfectly with any bikini or one piece. 

Wear the shirt unbuttoned for some extra coverage while you stroll along the shore with waves crashing at your feet or button up the mid-section for when you head off the sand to enjoy a lowkey lunch at a beachside cafĂ©.

Matching Set

Add an element of sophistication to your oversized shirt by pairing it with matching shorts or pants in the same colour, print and fabric. A resort worthy look, wear a coordinating set over your bikini in the daytime, a delicate crop top or buttoned with one side tucked in and finished with layers of gold jewellery for a comfortable yet stylish evening look.

Tied in a Knot

Accentuate your figure and add some elegance to your oversized look by keeping the bottom of the shirt unbuttoned and tying the front in a knot at the smallest part of your waist or at your bust. This creates a beautiful balanced silhouette, making the shirt into a cropped style whilst maintaining a masculine inspired oversized look on the top. Pair it with a high waisted maxi skirt or pants for an outfit that will see you through from the day to the night.

If comfort is key when it comes to finding new additions to add to your wardrobe, an oversized shirt is a must. Whether you’re pairing it with a feminine mini skirt, completing your look with a pair of coordinating shorts or pants, or adding your own twist and tying it in a knot to highlight your figure, this versatile piece will see you through endless seasons, vacations and occasions. Experiment with colours and fabrics such as poplin, linen, and cotton to find the ideal oversized shirt to add to your collection.
