How To Style The ‘90s-Inspired Oversized Shirts Trend
Informed by the effortlessness of ‘90s dressing, oversized shirts exude a sense of cool, thanks to their boxy silhouettes. Perennially chic and endlessly versatile, they’re smart enough for the office and chic enough for day-to-night socialising, in loose fits to suit all shapes. There’s a multitude of ways to style this trend – such as a light cover-up in place of a jacket or buttoned up to complement all jean styles – here is how to wear it for every occasion.
Back To Work
Wearing a shirt in the office isn’t exactly a novelty, but you can still be more playful with your looks. Poplin styles with oversized collars are the easiest way to place a fashion-forward spin on your work outfit, and our latest style is printed with a gingham motif for a more fun-loving feel. Style it with a pair of immaculately tailored trousers, and finish with chunky loafers, a relaxed utility jacket and our Linden handbag for a polished combination that’s appropriate for both the office and after-work affairs.

DAYS IN THE SUN
An oversized shirt fits loosely, proving to be a breezy option for warm summer days. When worn over tank tops, it’s the perfect light cover-up and makes a cooling alternative to jackets; and when buttoned up, it’ll look enviably cool with a pair of jeans or denim shorts. Roll up the sleeves for added off-duty detailing, and generously layer gold or silver jewellery to embellish the look. We’ll be layering ours over brightly coloured vests and T-shirts to bring pops of colour too.

The throw-on-and-go credibility of a classic co-ord is undeniable, promising a put-together result that works for almost every occasion. Crafted from a breathable linen textile, our favourite duo this summer comes in the form of an electric blue oversized shirt and matching shorts. When worn with sandals, it’s perfect for day-time garden parties; with heels, however, it ingeniously adapts for after-hours soirees.

For long summer days, choosing the right outfit that will see you through from morning to night is imperative. Seeking inspiration from style icons like Sarah Jessica Parker, Sade and Tina Turner, a tried-and-true jeans-and-shirt combination is a look that you’ll not only feel comfortable wearing, but utterly stylish too. A neutral beige tone, like the one seen on our latest poplin style, pairs well with authentic blue denim, and with the added touch of gold hoop earrings, our Kennie footbed sandals and Verity backpack, you’re ready for anything.
