STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Styling Oversized T-Shirts

Since attending my university three years ago, I have accumulated a whole drawer full of T-shirts. I have T-shirts that I have gotten free at basketball games (go rams!), sorority T-shirts, different band T-shirts—you name it! Despite having quite the collection of T-shirts, I find that I don’t wear them often. I never really know what to wear with them and I honestly just associated them with being something to wear to be comfortable rather than to make a fashion statement.

And then I met the Fashionista displayed in the pictures above! At first glance it doesn’t look like it but she’s actually wearing an oversized T-shirt! To show off her shape, she added a high-waisted denim skirt with a trendy button detailing on the front. To keep her warm on this chilly fall afternoon, she also threw on a long grey knit cardigan. The Fashionista kept her accessories to a minimum in order to make the cool graphic on her T-shirt the focal point of the look. She added a slight pop of color with the plum lipstick shade she was wearing and I thought the nonprescription glasses she was rocking was a nice touch. To tie the look together and to dress it up, the Fashionista wore a pair of grey heeled booties.

She says, “With the right perspective, you can turn anything into a fashion statement! Keep an open mind and don’t be afraid to try new things!”
