An oversized shirt is one of the most popular model this year! It has a voluminous appearance and usually looks like «a shirt from a man’s shoulder» – as if it was borrowed from a husband or boyfriend. Another distinctive feature of this shirt is the elongated shoulder line. Due to this, a slight carelessness appears in the image, and the silhouette looks soft and relaxed.

This model is very easy to combine – an oversized shirt looks very elegant and aesthetically with both trousers and skirts.
An oversized shirt allows you to create multi-level looks. Fashion designers like to experiment, combining the shirt with cropped jackets, vests and loose cardigans deliberately casually thrown over the shoulders.
