A Modern Classic
There's no denying it, the oversized t-shirt, and all the room they give us to move about in, have become a staple in our wardrobes. And it comes as no surprise as these floaty pieces can be a comfort on the days we need it, and can be styled up or down, ready for every activity.
For working out and rest days, we're a big fan of the comfort and versatility of the oversized t-shirt style. It's come a long way since the humorously huge '90s 'fit, but without a shadow of a doubt, the oversized tee is here to stay!
How do you like to wear them?
Tied in a knot!
It's a simple step, but one that instantly transforms your workout look. The excess fabric on an oversized t-shirt provides the perfect base to bring forward and twist and tie into a knot to create a fun cropped style. Perfect for those days where you want something a little loose on the top, but still want to show off your figure - just tie your baggy tees up and just like that you 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 hack to making a simple silhouette into a chic one. Simply take the hem and some excess material 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 prints
We all love a good print from time to time, 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 where 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 oversized printed tee with a plain pair of leggings and voila... your workout 'fit is instantly a mood.
Comfy and cozy with joggers
It's a no-brainer 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 chuck 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". Pair an oversized tee with some loose-fitting joggers, and watch your problems melt away.
Pair with leggings or shorts for a casual gym fit
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 timeless criteria. You really can't go wrong, slouchy tees 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.
