The best thing you can do to expand your Spring wardrobe is start dating again. Back and bigger than ever, oversized menswear is as chic as it is comfortable. Street style ladies are asserting themselves by taking up as much space as possible. Move over!
Oversized Menswear Staple Blouse
In addition to the oversize graphic tee, a large button up blouse works wonderfully over a mid-length skirt. Conservative oversized menswear looks delightful paired with pleats. A striped chambray shirt may turn out to be one of the most versatile items in your closet. Perfect for girls to like to rock conservative preppy styles with flair.
One of our favorite pant styles is boxy in the waist and looks like something grandpa might have worn. You don’t have to be totally swimming in oversized menswear to pull off the look. Go for slacks that have a high-water hem and large statement-making sunglasses.
Go Big But Don’t Go Home
The weather is still cool enough for an athletic-style sweater that has dropped shoulder seams. We like oversized menswear that is comfy and cozy and a semi-bulky sweater works great with roomy slacks. Roll up your cuffs and accessorize with an oversized clutch or oversized woven purse. The idea is big, bold, and beautiful.
Spring is also the prime season to rock denim on denim. Add oversized menswear principles to your standard Canadian tuxedo and you will be going places, eh? An oversized chambray shirt with a longer tail works great with wide-leg jeans. Longer lengths help an otherwise boxy look stay lean and fashion-forward.
A double-breasted blazer is still sticking around and is playing double-duty this Spring. This season’s oversized menswear is coming in the form of a blazer-turned mini dress. We are digging on the wide shoulders and scrappy sandals styled by the fashion mavens at & Other Stories. Turn heads with blue rose fabric and a couture-inspired silhouette.
Borrow His Jacket
If you’re a follower of French girl cool, then you are probably already familiar with the quick trick of making any outfit work. An oversized leather jacket is like a shield of armor when you are feeling a little vulnerable. Pair one with boot-cut or barrel jeans and a button up blouse (we told you it would be your favorite). The blouse helps you keep that business casual look whether you are feeling it or not.
Bigger in Bulk
Word on the street this year is “voluminous“. Oversized menswear will quickly become a favorite once you get the hang of the larger proportions. Start with one piece and play around with layering as you more comfortable in the wide zone.
