There's nothing more uncomfortable than a shirt that's skintight. A little bit of bloat can throw off your whole evening, and don't get us started on how confining a tight top is on a hot day. Oversize is the way to go in almost any case, and shout out to TikTok for popularizing it. Baggy, airy, loose, and unfitted is the name of the game — and its comfort score hits it out of the park. We've seen oversize in streetwear and in support of the coastal-grandmother trend [1], so why not fill your wardrobe with it? Whether it be a loose blouse, a minimal T-shirt, a cotton flannel, or even a sweater for nights that get chilly, oversize is neither here nor there — it's always accepted.

Styling an oversize top is as easy as throwing on a pair of bike shorts or loose-fitted jeans; it's effortless. The trend pairs well with anything, no matter how relaxed or fitted it may be.
