Oversized clothes used to have a bad rep. They were those go to items when you couldn’t be bothered trying, or you were feeling lazy, self concious or plain meh. Although we all still have those go to’s, oversized clothing has made a huge comeback and it’s not just wearing two sizes too big. Being comfortable in your clothes means looking good in your clothes, so don’t discount your baggy indoor faves as a way of feeling confident outside too. There’s a difference between doesn’t fit and rad n’ baggy and what you pair your with your jumbo items are what makes or breaks it.
There are several reasons I love oversized dressing and hiding my food-baby is just one of them. All jokes aside, there’s nothing more understated and chic than a tshirt with some swing and undeniable comfort value. Over the last few weeks, I feel like I’ve not had this grey oversized tee off my back! It’s been my safety net when I’m curled up in the house and even better when out and about. It’s very rare to find such an item that comforts you when you are feeling sad, bloated or tired, but still makes you feel stylish when added with some other wardrobe favourites. I mean, shouldn’t being you’re best friend when you’re feeling blue be enough to make you feel just as good strutting about town? I say hell to the yes.
As it’s far from warm enough to style on it’s lonesome, I layered up my new favourite baggy tee from Nobody’s Child over these amazing metallic striped jeans from River Island. I’ve never liked the crotch area of these jeans but adored the legs too much to let them go. Also the fact they were limited edition and a tenner in the sale that I found on a trip to Leeds. I like to think bargains hold extra value in my wardrobe, which also includes this Topshop Boutique PVC Trench I picked up for just £7.

When you are wearing something oversized, you need to either smarten, or sport it up. Since I am still sort of new to mastering the sports game, adding heels is always my go to. If you haven’t already noticed, I have had so much wear from my Zara nude booties so at Christmas I asked Mumma for another pair, this time from Public Desire. I know you have probably all had your fill of perspex heeled booties, but I just love them. I found them a little small so had to size up, but now I find them oh so comfy walking around the city.
I must admit, I felt great in this outfit and I’m pretty sure I’ll bring it out again. I’ve literally worn this dress so many ways already, but I love how it is a firm favourite for lazing about the house and on the streets. As soon as the weather picks up, expect this to be seen with some high tops and a denim jacket. Hopefully I wont be waiting too long! Will you be taking your indoor comfies outside for a spin?
