Oversized t-shirts are often worn for a casual and relaxed feel. But there is a difference between messy and casual. If you look carefully as you walk the streets, you occasionally see someone wearing an oversized t-shirt and looking good for some reason. Unlocking the secrets is the main purpose of this blog post. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ways to style an oversized t-shirt and I believe you will find these tricks useful.
Oversized t-shirt with gray print and boyfriend jeans
A classic yet counterintuitive way of wearing a shirt is to make it smaller? You can do this by doing two things, rolling up your sleeves and tucking your t-shirt. With your t-shirt, I only mean it partially with a touch of randomness. This outfit is the perfect example of this trick. Just wear an oversized t-shirt with a gray print, as described for boyfriend jeans with a cuff. Finish off the outfit with elegant strappy heels.
Black oversized t-shirt with black skinny jeans
Another trick for styling the oversized t-shirt is to compensate for the losability of the t-shirt for the top with tight fitting items for the bottom. Items like skinny jeans, lederhosen, and leggings work perfectly in such situations. A good example is wearing a black oversized black t-shirt with black skinny jeans. Complete this elegant casual outfit with suede boots.
Knot the oversized t-shirt
I mentioned that one way to look great with an oversized t-shirt is to make it smaller, and knotting the t-shirt can do just that. This outfit is very noticeable not only because it uses the knotted tea trick, but also because a strong color contrast is used creatively. For the top, just wear an oversized, knotted gray t-shirt. Pair it with contrasting light yellow jeans. Trust me, the two colors actually go well together. It is trust that you need to achieve this.
Partially tuck the oversized t-shirt into a white skirt
For a boho look, go for a white boho mini skirt. Wear a sturdy gray oversized t-shirt and partially tuck it into the skirt. Complete his simple but beautiful outfit with sandals.
Tie a shirt or jacket around the oversized t-shirt
This outfit reveals another trick for styling an oversized t-shirt. The trick is to tie a shirt or jacket around your waist over the t-shirt. For example, wear a white printed t-shirt and tie a denim shirt around your waist. Black leggings and white sneakers are a great choice to complement this outfit.

Wear it as a t-shirt dress with denim shorts that barely show up
There is a little difference between the oversized t-shirt and the t-shirt dress. The t-shirt dress is generally only a few inches longer, so you will be comfortable with no shorts underneath. To wear an oversized T-shirt like a shirt dress, jean shorts must be worn with it. For example, this outfit consists of a white oversized t-shirt, barely visible denim shorts and black oxford shoes.
Knotted V-neck t-shirt and white skinny jeans
For a minimalist and refreshing gray and white outfit that is especially suitable for the spring feeling, you can simply wear a gray knotted V-neck t-shirt and white skinny jeans. Combine the pieces with white trainers to look relaxed and casual or with gray ballerinas to look more elegant.
Wear as a dress with an oversized green bomber jacket
If you’re looking to wear a jacket over an oversized white t-shirt, a green bomber jacket is a great choice. Just wear the white t-shirt with the green oversized jacket. As mentioned before, I like the idea of wearing jeans under the t-shirt, even if it barely shows. Add elegance and character to the outfit by wearing white lace-up ankle boots.
Wear it with black leggings and ankle boots
Here is another example of the wide-top-narrow-bottom trick of making you look casual and stylish. Wear an oversized white t-shirt with black leggings. Complete the outfit with suede boots. For more outfit ideas for similar shoes, check out our other blog post on suede boots.

The outfit consists of the white oversized t-shirt, short black skinny jeans, the shirt tied around the waist and gray slip-on canvas sneakers.
Wear it with a denim jacket and shorts
If you’re a denim fanatic, you must have known by now that an interesting way to style denim clothing is to wear denim on denim. We have a more in-depth blog post on how to wear denim-on-denim if interested. Back to that outfit idea, this outfit shows that denim works pretty well on denim with an oversized t-shirt.
