One wardrobe number you can always trust on is the oversized shirt. The oversized trend dates way back to the 1920s and ever since the Oversized aesthetic hits the runway every year whether its oversized bags to jewellery and for the last couple of fall collections it has been all about the oversized coat. Oversized was a trend that was quickly adopted by A list trend setters like from the Olsen twins, Victoria Beckham to Rhianna and even Kim Kardashian have all rocked out the trend in some way.
The trusty oversized shirt is the ultimate hero piece that should be part of everybody’s wardrobe. The oversized shirt is one of the most practical and versatile pieces that you can invest in this season. The style of shirt is also great for forming an aesthetically pleasing silhouette where the oversized shape of the shirt in the top half of the body against the legs helps to accentuate the slimness of the lower body.
The styling possibilities with this hero piece are quite frankly endless. There are so many styles of oversized shirts to opt for all baring unusual prints and directional cuts. Oversized shirts look great with short shorts and pumps where in the colder months you can look just as stylish in trousers or chinos. The great thing about this style of shirt is that you can dress this piece up or down with skirts and pump stiletto’s or denim bottoms and sneakers for an equally stylish look.
