I have a friend who is a master of an oversized outfit expertise. I mean, there’s no single person in the whole world who is not familiar with the “oversized top, skinny bottom” (or vice versa) rule when it comes to a casual style. On the other side, we’ve seen plenty of breathtaking street style examples of oversized everything. I might feel myself more down to earth and not in a phase of oversized outfit extravaganza experiments though (hats off to Maja Wyh). What I know for sure, and my friend proved it with her personal oversized everything style for so many times, you can’t go wrong playing around with one size bigger t-shirts, boyfriend jeans or chunky sweaters. When I feel like a “hot mess”, I usually wear a grey t-shirt, converse and skinny jeans. When I feel like a “hot and relaxed mess”, I wear this outfit – “stolen from boyfriend” striped button up shirt (actually, not stolen, but scored for a ~ drum rolls ~ $1 at a yard sale), distressed boyfriend jeans, neutral color espadrilles and a crochet cardigan to add a bohemian spice to the look. Cozy, neat, simple.
