Psst…the key is to stay in the neutral and achromatic colour zone like Tan, beige, blacks and whites. Try not to go for an extremely over-the-top oversized t-shirt look, unless you are wearing a blazer.
  1. Layer Life

Layer it up like there’s no tomorrow! Go crazy this winter season and build on your oversized t-shirt base by adding bomber jackets or formal shirts to it. You can alternatively layer a fitted t-shirt with an oversized one to create an illusion of bulk and depth. Add a tinge of the modern urban feel by combining it with slim-fit jeans or joggers and some comfortable trainers. Go ahead, roll up those sleeves and don’t forget to layer it up with chains.

This layered look will make you stand out in a crowd, whether out in town or just hanging out with close friends.
