8 Tips On How To Wear Oversized Clothes Without Looking Awkward

If you read the title of this post and thought, “Simple: Put oversized clothing item on your body, proceed with life, done,” then, well, that’s fair. There isn’t necessarily a science to wearing oversized clothes, but hear me out…

Oversized clothes are definitely cute and comfy, but they can be a little intimidating. Usually, when I see oversized clothing in ads, style-based Instagram/Tumblr accounts, the person wearing it is pretty thin. The oversized shirt hanging oh so loosely on their body is coupled with some sort of aspirational carefree vibe. “Look at how small I look in this massive top, tee hee.”


As someone who is tall, curvy, has a wide upper body, big boobs, and a little bit of a tummy, I–tee hee–can’t relate.

Sometimes, a top that’s sold to me as oversized isn’t that oversized at all, or it ends up making me look like a shapeless sack of potatoes. Now, that’s fine if I want to go for the shapeless sack of potatoes look, but that’s usually not on my agenda. Luckily, there are a few ways to wear oversized clothes that look awesome on every body type instead of vaguely awkward on anyone over a size four.  So, without further ado, check out these eight tips on rocking oversized clothes. Who knows, if you’ve been adverse to rocking oversized clothes before, you might get inspired to give ’em a try.
