Things to do with a cute oversized t-shirt

As of the late 2000s, oversized clothes have been popular in women's fashion. An oversized T-shirt, sometimes called a "boyfriend shirt," is simple and urban, conveying a laid-back attitude. Cute oversized T-shirts can be made fashionable in many ways, as they are like blank canvases for the creative fashionista.

Dresses

Oversized T-shirts can be worn as dresses. These are often called tunics and worn with skin-tight leggings. Wearing leggings offsets the bagginess of the T-shirt and adds femininity. Add a belt around the oversized T-shirt to make it even cuter and to highlight a thin waist. If you don't want to wear a belt, add layers of long necklaces to add some interest.

Off the Shoulder

If your T-shirt is big enough around the neckline, you may be able to wear it off the shoulder. When doing this, wear a bra with a coloured strap or a tank top underneath; remember the straps will be visible to other people and should complement the outfit. Another idea is to cut a new neckline into your shirt with a pair of kitchen scissors. All you have to do is start from the top of the shoulder on the one side and cut in a "U" shape to the other shoulder. This will make the T-shirt hang more loosely off the shoulder, creating more style to the shirt.

With a Knot

Another way to make an oversized T-shirt more fashionable is to add a small knot at the bottom. Do this by gathering the ends of your T-shirt in the front and pulling it to either the right or left side. If the T-shirt is long enough, tie the knot with the T-shirt material itself. If not, tie it up with an elastic band or ribbon. The knot will add a fun element to the oversized T-shirt.

What to Wear Them With

As a rule, when wearing an oversized top, don't wear trousers, shorts, or skirts that are also oversized. Instead play up your oversized T-shirt with contrast: Wear skinny jeans or even tights underneath. Tight miniskirts and short shorts are also a good option. When wearing a pair of shorts that are shorter than the length of the T-shirt, wear a belt with the shorts and tuck the front of the T-shirt in, so it doesn't look as though you're wearing a top with no bottom.
