Fall is officially here. You’ve done well all summer and you’re noticing that your favorite t-shirt doesn’t quite hug you the way it used to. It’s not that it doesn’t love you anymore; you’ve made a major change and your wardrobe is ready to change with you. Here are some tips that’ll help your relationship with your favorite items and keep you both looking good.
Incorporate Your Old Oversized Clothes Into Your New Wardrobe
Oversized is not a word that’s easily thrown around amongst fashion’s elite. When it’s time to get dressed formally, fitted is still the best option. But that doesn’t mean you have to get rid of all of your gear. Fall allows for players and layers and oversized clothes can be the perfect piece to take your style to the next level and help you stand out.
For the Fellas:
If your tee is on the basic side, it has some versatility and you can use it as an outer layer of another tee or under an open button up flannel.

Graphic tees (especially longer) can serve as a great under layer of a denim shirt and the design peeking from the bottom adds a bit more personality to your outfit. The key to mastering oversized clothes is the balance. When wearing an oversized tee, you want to have fitted bottoms. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking like you’re stuck in the early 2000’s Will Smith Gettin’ Jiggy With It Era, and while we’ve adopted the 90s flair this year, some styles are best left forgotten.
For the Ladies:
Luckily for the ladies, with a 90s homage, comes baggy boyfriend jeans and bodysuits. Now, your loose-fitted jeans are a win! This is a great look for all seasons and will serve you well while you transition from warmer to cooler weather. On cooler nights, it can be layered with a biker jacket for a rough look or a cardigan for a softer flirty look. Who doesn’t like a taste of 90’s Janet Jackson realness?
So don’t fret because of fall. Put those oversized clothes to good use and celebrate the new you!
