How To Wear the Oversized Boyfriend Shirt

4.14.2010 WRITTEN BY Ashley T+P Blog Central

Boy, do I love me a good oversized boyfriend shirt. It’s comfy, casual and the ultimate top for pulling off that perfectly disheveled, just-rolled-out-of-bed look. But if approached incorrectly, a boyfriend T can look more messy than marvelous. Here are a few tips on how to wear an oversized shirt without actually looking boyish.

Accessorize it: The boyfriend shirt is supposed to hang loosely on your body and project an effortless sexiness, as though you literally just snuggled up in your BF’s favorite tee. To make this typically shapeless shirt a little more body-conscious, wrap a skinny leather belt around the smallest part of your waist, or let a studded rocker belt sit loosely on your hips. Make sure the the belt is not too tight so as not to let theĀ  shirt pucker too much.

Highlight it: To make the boyfriend shirt the focal point of your outfit, make sure to pair it with bottoms that will enhance its appeal. Skinny jeans are the best way to offset the shape of an oversized top; looser pants will only make you look baggier and frumpy. Another great option to pair with tunic length button-downs is tights, which will add more femininity to your attire. Add a tough pair of boots and you’re rocking the BF look in style.

Keep it simple: Although you may feel inclined to add girlish jewelry and accessories, the key to pulling off this trend is by letting the shirt speak for itself. Tousled hair and a cool pair of shades are just enough to make this shirt look authentically cool.
