HOW WE DO: OVERSIZED T-SHIRTS FOR FW17

By Lakeisha Goedluck, September 16, 2017

Supersized T-shirts have been a go-to for a couple of years now, but how we're rocking them has evolved for FW17. No longer just a case of leaving them loose over skinny jeans for a proportion-playing contrast, recent months have seen the tuck, half-tuck and all kinds of leftfield layering come to the fore. Here's how the crew at ASOS HQ have been breathing new life into their baggiest tops.

Classic cardigan

If you’re looking to play around with lengths, you'll want this style of longline, skater T-shirt in your sartorial arsenal. As stylist Ben demonstrates here, wearing your extra-long tee with a similarly lengthy vintage-style cardigan is an easy way to construct a slick, subdued ‘fit.

Pair with dark-wash skinny jeans and minimal plimsolls for a fresh, street-ready take on an old-school preppy vibe.

Neat neutrals

For an updated take on the simple white T-shirt, go for an oversized version with a subtle graphic print. Channel skater style by wearing a long-sleeved tee in a dark hue underneath for a nice contrast and strong layering action.

Take cues from senior editor Matt and keep the rest of your aesthetic clean by wearing stone-colored Dickies chinos and monochrome sneakers down low.

Velour vibes

Another upside to owning an oversized tee is the possibility to experiment with textures. Here, artworker Seb takes it back to the '70s by wearing a long-sleeved velour top in a bold burgundy shade under his T-shirt.

Follow suit and stick to all black with the rest of your threads to make sure your sleeves stand out, so that your next-level layering is clear for all to see.

Go for an eye-catching, stripy, long-sleeved top and an oversized tee with a simple, bright graphic. Team with baggy pants and vibrant socks for a fluorescent finish.
