If you read this post then here’s an updated version on how to style, or rather, restyle an oversized shirt. You know I’m all about versatility and incorporating the few items in your wardrobe into your everyday lifestyle will save you from the stress of spending so much on clothes.

Versatility is the new fashion right now; that is, styling a particular fashion piece in different ways in order to suit any occasion and an oversized shirt or boyfriend shirt is one of those versatile items you should have in your wardrobe.

LOOK 1 :

For the sporty chic, you can pair your oversized shirt with a sneakers just as I did; I styled this shirt I got for 50 Naira by using a metallic belt over it in order to have a grip on my tummy/waist (whichever works for you). I also went ahead to pair it with a white sneakers which gave it a sporty look.

However, you could wear a mini skirt/short underneath the boyfriend shirt, if you feel yours is a tad bit short.

Roll up the sleeves of your shirt in order to properly accessorize – bracelets, wristbands and a wristwatch. I tired accessorizing with a cap but didn’t really like how it looked but I’m sure UV visors will do justice.

Finish off with a nice tote, crossbody or raffia bag and you’re good to go slay on em’!

LOOK 2 :

Another way to style an oversized shirt is to tie it up neatly to give an illusion of an off shoulder blouse while covering the other side of the arm, just as I did.

This automatically makes it easy to wear trousers or skirt with the shirt. Heels will suit this look better and that’s why I opted for one

PS : There’s a video on how I achieved this look here

There you have it, two easy ways to switch up on an oversized/boyfriend shirt.
