Tricky to style until you get the gist of it, the boxy tee is universally flattering. While it might take a few runs of trial and letting go, once you’re hooked on to it, it’ll be really difficult to let go. Because in reality boxy t-shirts can be worn with just about everything, and the best part, you can create something new with it every time.
So, if you’re still wondering how to style that unapologetically oversized or slightly slouchy-at-the-shoulders tees that you’ve been eyeing to buy, just read on to know why you should go ahead and make that purchase.
Go for the Pants
Nothing matches a boxy tee better that a pair of wide legged pants. They’re functional, comfortable and add to the whole lazy, yet well-turned out vibe. For some added points, colour co-ordinate your boxy cropped tshirt with your pants.
Twirl in Your Skirt
Add a more feminine appeal to your oversized boxy tee by pairing it with a nice skirt. For a printed colourful tee choose a solid-coloured skirt to add an interesting focal point. This will also help give more definition to your overall shape. While a full, swingy maxi skirt is great, you can go for a pencil skirt for a more defined shape. The bonus, pencil skirts also give you more scope to flaunt curves.
Go Carefree in Shorts
The best for a lazy Sunday brunch, the shorts and tee are a staple for any wardrobe. They’re relaxed, comfy and just so cute when you pair it with loads of accessories and a killer attitude. If you can carry it off go for a pair of mini denim shorts, some chunky earrings, stack on some bracelets and don’t forget the vibrant crossbody macrame or crochet sling bag.
Trim It Down with Jeans
When it’s loose on top why not add more shape to the bottom? A nice pair of skinny tight jeans is a great way to look svelte yet casual in your boxy tees. They’re great for anyone and they’re always there in your closet. You can also go with jeggings or treggings if you like. Don’t forget to step it up with a nice pair of heels. Going causal? Wear platforms, layer up the necklaces and carry a tote.
Throw in the Jacket
From a stripped or checked shirt to your denim jacket, anything goes with the boxy tee. This adds a new layer and creates a dressier look to even the most boring of tees. You could pair the jacket and tshirt with your denims or your skirts, based on how you want to take things up a notch.
Pick the Joggers
Show off that gym bod with a nice pair of joggers and a boxy tee. They look casual and are a perfect all-day outfit. And the best part you can wear them anywhere by just throwing in the right pair of shoes, jewellery, and the right bag.
Boxy, cropped tees have now become a girl’s best friend. They can be matched with anything and can be dressed up and down with just the right kind of accessories. Just try a few styles and see what works for you. While all of them should be fine for the most of us, pick something you’re comfortable in and your attitude should be able to lead rest of the way.
