CLOSET STAPLE: The Oversized Shirt



A lot of people seem to confuse the words "shirt" and "t-shirt", so let me start off this blog post by quickly explaining the difference between the two.

A shirt is basically a general term for any piece of clothing that is worn on the top part of the body. A t-shirt, on the other hand, is a type of shirt that is considered as an informal attire, with no collar and no buttons.

All clear? Okay. Let's proceed!


One of my favorite types of shirts is the oversized kind, preferably a button-down. It's the perfect piece of clothing to wear when you want to achieve that "effortlessly chic" vibe, which, incidentally, is also my favorite type of look. There's something intriguing about looking very dressed up but at the same time seeming like you didn't really give your outfit much thought and just threw on the first things you could grab from your closet. Personally, that's the vibe that I always try to achieve.

It's good to look fabulous, but it's even better to look like it just came naturally.




Investing in an oversized shirt is definitely a smart idea! The versatility of this piece will ensure that it will remain wearable for an immensely long period of time, as opposed to trendy pieces that just come and go.

This printed one that I'm wearing actually belonged to my dad which he bought back in the 70's. It's 2014 now and as you can see, the oversized shirt is still something that people often wear nowadays. If that's not a good investment then I don't know what is. 



Fashion tip: Pair your oversized shirt with skinny jeans, leggings, or mini shorts to balance everything out and avoid looking like one baggy mess.

  14. I love how you get some of your best pieces from your dad - he's forming in my mind as some sort of style guru! ;) This shirt looks as though you've 'thrown it on and it happens to look incredible', which is the total aim here.. I'm dying over your striking red tote! Great post!
