If there is one staple item you need ready for your summer wardrobe, it’s an oversized white shirt. They are so diverse, flattering and easy to style. Not to mention, you can find great options no matter what your budget is! Here are 3 different ways to style an oversized white shirt this summer, to help you make a simple piece into something special.
As A Dress
The most simple way to wear an oversized white shirt is as a dress, and we have a very simple formula to help you take it to another level! Put on your white shirt and button it up, leaving one or two buttons undone at the top.
Then, you can create so many different looks by changing up the belt, bag and shoes. Some people suit wearing oversized clothes without doing much to the shape, however if you’re anything like me, you want it to be slightly more fitted.
So, for a more bohemian outfit, you might choose an embroidered belt, brown sandals and a brown cross body bag. If you want to dress it up, go for a thin black belt, black platform heels and a clutch. For a daytime trip look, pair your dress with white trainers, a bright coloured belt and matching backpack. You could even wear it over a glam bikini from a womens boutique clothing store on holiday!
Each of these outfits will look completely different, making this oversized shirt a staple in any wardrobe. Plus, we haven’t even gotten to the other options you have apart from wearing it as a dress!
With Skinny Jeans and Nude Heels
A very simple but extremely effective outfit would be ripped blue skinny jeans, your white oversized shirt and nude heels. This is a classic outfit that is great for so many different occasions. The added length of the shirt compared to an average shirt will help to elongate the top of the body which is great for people with a shorter torso.
If you have a longer torso and want to break the outfit up a bit, you could wear a belt around the waist or wear the shirt unbuttoned with a camisole top underneath. Either of these options will provide some separation whilst still keeping the outfit looking clean and effortless.
As this outfit is so simple, don’t be afraid to accessorize with a statement necklace or earrings. You can definitely take this opportunity to fill that white space and make a statement!
Tied Around The Waist With A Maxi Skirt
Finally, a beautiful bohemian look can be created by putting on your shirt, loosely tying the ends of your shirt together around the waist and pairing it with a maxi skirt. This is a slightly more casual alternative to wearing a full maxi dress and is a great option for warm days.
The combination of the long skirt with the cinched in waist, where you have tied the shirt, will give you amazing shape. Finish the look with an over the shoulder bag and sandals. Again, the white of the shirt helps to break up the outfit, so it will work really well if you wear a brighter skirt and accessories.
If you are thinking of investing in a new piece for your summer wardrobe, make it an oversized white shirt. These are just a few of the options for styling, but the possibilities are endless! Put your own spin on the shirt and you will look and feel amazing.
