Oversized Shirt Dress

Version 3

Trend no.2 this fall: Oversized and Masculine fitted clothing. This style can be tricky to style just because if you wear it the wrong way you might look more like a blob than a fashionista. But don’t worry that is why I created a list for you to check off to make sure you nail it!

I’m a big fan of this trend because it is so comfy and easy. Who knew throwing on a large shirt and a scarf could be cute? Now let’s go more into the details. I paired this light blue and white scarf with the navy windowpane dress to mix up the patterns to give it a more structured look but kept the concepts of stripes and blues and whites similar. For example, a bright pink leopard print scarf might be too much pattern mixing. For accessories, I kept them simple. The outfit’s main focus is the oversized shirt dress; the jewelry is just there to make it a bit more feminine.

1) Balance. Wear a balance of the trend, not everything you wear has to be oversized. With this shirt dress, I made sure to show my legs to proportion out the outfit. As it starts to get cooler, I’d suggest wearing tights or skinny jeans for this same balance.

2) Add some height. Will help to make the oversize slimmer and help balance out the outfit.

3) A touch of feminine. Yes, the trend is an oversized masculine fit, but make sure to throw in a piece or two to make the outfit a bit more flattering. That can be anything from belting your waist, large earrings, to necklaces.

4) Try different patterns and fabrics. Wearing different patterns and fabrics will help break up the outfit and give it more structure.
