Fashion is having a SUPERSIZED moment. Oversized jeans, oversized jackets, boyfriend button-ups and of course oversized t-shirts.
With our renewed fashion love for all things 90s, the nostalgic skatewear staple was bound to rear it’s head this season.
After all, skatewear is the original streetwear and streetwear has become high-fashion. So thanks to some basic mathematics, oversized baggy tees, a favorite of 90s ollie 360 flipping boarders, are now high-fashion.
When rockin’ the oversized t-shirt trend the usual rules about the T-shirts sleeve hitting the middle of the bicep don’t apply, with some cuts falling as low as the elbow. Just consider adding a few rolls to the hem to avoid your arms looking to stubby.
As with any statement trend, it’s important to avoid the temptation to go crashing in on the trend head to toe. This style works best when you dip your toes in gently at first.
You want to create balance. An oversized tee paired with oversized jeans can leave you looking really sloppy. To keep your look sleek and stylish you need to balance out the oversized with a slimmer fit elsewhere. If you wear oversized on top try to keep it a normal fit on the bottom, but avoid super skinny as the extreme contrast will look out of place.
