A Modern Classic

There's no denying it, the oversized t shirt gives us the freedom of movement to feel confident and comfortable on the days we need it, and for this reason, they've become a staple in many of our wardrobes. Even better, baggy shirts provide outfits galore, as they can be styled up or down, ready for every activity.

For working out and rest days, we're big fans of the comfort and versatility of the oversized t shirt style. With its soft fabrics and loose silhouettes, an oversized gym t shirt makes the perfect gym pump cover to rep out during your warm-up at the gym. Or maybe your active rest day uniform is an oversized t shirt outfit that hits the spot every time.

We know you like to get the most from your pieces, and activewear often becomes everyday wear. So we've come up with five oversized t shirt hacks providing inspiration on how to style an oversized gym t shirt in a new way.

It's come a long way since the humorously huge '90s 'fits, but with these modern styling tips, there's no doubt the oversized tee is here to stay!


How To Style An Oversized Shirt Your Way

Here are our five best hacks for styling oversized gym t shirts for your leg days, run days, rest days and everything in between.

Tied In A Knot

Sometimes it's the simplest of tricks that can completely transform a look. To style your oversized gym t shirt this way, pull the excess fabric at the front of your oversized t shirt forward, twist the fabric, and tie it into a knot to create a fun cropped style. Perfect for those days when you want something a little loose on the top, but still want to show off your newly formed Pilates abs - just tie your baggy shirts up, and you'll get the best of both worlds.

The Tuck-It-Under-Your-Sports-Bra Trick

Another option to spice up those slouchy tee days is the bra-tuck-trick. It's a foolproof oversized t shirt hack to elevate a simple silhouette. Simply take the hem and some excess material at the front of your oversized t shirt and tuck it under the band of your sports bra. The messy tuck gives a ruching effect and the baggy cropped top creates that effortless model-off-duty look (especially when paired with some high-waisted leggings).

Go Bold With A Graphic Tee

We all love a good oversized graphic tee. A bold print or interesting graphic, whether it's an accessory or the main feature of an outfit, it's an intentional way of bringing some pazaz to an outfit. You know those days when you just want to throw something on but still want a bit of edge to your outfit? Enter the graphic oversized t shirt. You can pair your baggy graphic tee with a pair of black gym leggings and voila... your workout 'fit is instantly a mood.

Style Tip: Head to the men's t shirts & tops section to explore even more graphic and printed tee options.

Comfy And Cozy With Joggers

After lots of trials and testing various rest day pieces, it's evident that oversized is the way to go when it comes to getting comfy. We all have those old baggy (or should we say saggy?) t shirts that we love to throw on to lounge around the house, but if you're anything like us... you're probably due a re-up. And we know there's a call for balance in other areas of styling; baggy bottoms, fitted tops etc, but if there's one rule for feeling comfortable, it's "the baggier the better". Style an oversized tee with some loose-fitting joggers, and watch your problems melt away.

Pair With Leggings Or Shorts For A Casual Gym Outfit

The ultimate cool-girl 'fit, the I'm going to run errands but still want to look put together 'fit, the comfy but cute 'fit. Whatever you want to call it, the oversized tee and leggings have entered their timeless era. You really can't go wrong, baggy shirts look good and feel even better, so what's not to like? And when it comes to hitting the gym, the extra room and comfort allow you to move your best and keep your head in the game.
