Sometimes, there is nothing better than drowning in an oversized T-shirt or sweatshirt, whether it be from Urban Outfitters, a thrift shop or even a hand-me-down.

The Versatility

A baggy tee is a cozy staple that’s not just suitable for pajamas, they can indeed be worn out. Additionally, what makes them so versatile is that they can be dressed up or down. 

Finding a pile of vintage oversized tees can feel like a gold mine.

Versatile staples in your closet are great to have on hand. And, PSA: wearing an oversized top does not make you a VSCO girl! Just because you enjoy wearing baggy clothes does not at all mean you must also wear puka shells and carry a Hydro Flask at all times.

There’s no doubt that Lady Diana was a fashion icon. Her post-divorce style was significant for demonstrating her exit from the British royal family. While the “revenge dress” is unrivaled, her biker short and oversized sweatshirt outfits are still acclaimed to this day.

If wearing a baggy item of clothing is more practical and makes you the most comfortable, then so be it. One should never feel that they have to accentuate a certain part of their body if they do not want to. 

The Impact of Billie Eilish

When Billie Eilish was first on the rise, her red carpet looks became synonymous with her oversized and baggy wear, which some critics condemned, while others praised her for not fitting in with sexist norms.

“I wear what I want to wear. But of course, everyone sees it as, ‘She’s saying no to being sexualised,’ and, ‘She’s saying no to being the stereotypical female.’”

Eilish has definitely been adamant about the way that onlookers should perceive women’s fashion. At the end of the day, why should people criticize and belittle others just for their outfits?

Other Oversized Accessories

Chunky and bulky jewelry seems to have made a comeback on the fashion scene. Oversized jewelry is certainly a statement piece that is a stark contrast from minimal, fine line jewelry that seems to have taken the world by storm. 

It’s safe to say that reusable tote bags are here to stay. FP Movement’s Quilted Carryall is a trendy slouchy bag that appears to be loved by influencers and gym rats alike. Think of this tote bag as being a more casual version of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

Oversized and slouchy bags allow you to feel like Mary Poppins. This style of bag is a significant contrast from tiny purses and clutches that have been trendy for a few years.

Lastly, oversized sunglasses have been known to not only cover up under-eye bags, but they can also be a serious statement. There are so many ways that you can add oversized wear to your wardrobe, whether it be a tee, sweater or accessory.
