Why an oversized shirt is the unexpected new season staple you need

Asia's Tech News Daily

As much as I’d love to tell you that wearing slouchy shirts year round has long been a sartorial trick of mine, when I conduct my biannual wardrobe swapover in September, oversized cotton shirts are one of the first categories to go. I’ll haul them out of my wardrobe, then vacuum pack them into storage, where they sit in hibernation until the next swapover in March. There’s no denying it’s a classic, but they’re for summer, right? Well, perhaps not.

The latest sneak peek from the upcoming And Just Like That series shows Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw sitting at a restaurant table. Alongside several layered necklaces, she wears an oversized plaid shirt, nicely elevated by her high ponytail and jewels. Her character is renowned for her high-low mixes, and in an autumnal khaki hue, her look was fitting for the season and the occasion.

Meanwhile, for a YouTube reading of her new children’s book on Wednesday, The Bench, the Duchess of Sussex turned to a favourite wardrobe staple: the oversized shirt. Her blue number was left open at the collar, and she’d rolled up the sleeves to her elbows for a casual feel, pairing it with blue jeans and gold jewellery. 

The slouchy shirt has long been synonymous with Meghan’s style. She famously sported Misha Nonoo’s ‘Husband’ shirt to the Invictus Games back in 2017, just weeks before she and Harry announced their engagement. British label With Nothing Underneath’s cotton shirts are also among her favourites, having been spotted in various styles from the brand over the years. 

OK, it’s worth noting Meghan was wearing hers in her California home where temperatures will climb to 29 degrees today, but that’s not to say there isn’t a style lesson here for those of us on the chilly side of the pond, as Sarah Jessica Parker in autumnal New York proves. 

Now that we’re all agreed they’re a chic year-round staple, here’s why now’s the time to add a slouchy shirt to your new season arsenal: 

Naturally, it’s workwear friendly

The shirt works well for smarter dress codes, and even this oversized style has its place in a modern workwear rotation. Pop a T-shirt or vest underneath and wear unbuttoned like Meghan, but most importantly, you’ll need to tuck it into a pair of trousers, rather than leaving it loose. Team with slick leather accessories – think a whippet-thin belt and sturdy loafers – to elevate it further.

It work just as well for off-duty

If a slim-fit or classic style feels too stuffy to sport at the weekend, this slouchy iteration feels perfect. Wear it open over a T-shirt and with a cardigan on top, or tuck it into high-waisted blue jeans and pair with coloured Converse trainers. Even with relaxed boyfriend jeans and trainers, a shirt still adds a polished feel.

You can wear them well into winter

Layering is key in autumn/winter since it’s rare a single layer will suffice, and the shirt works as a stylish middle puzzle piece. Wear a turtleneck underneath and throw a blazer over, or layer a long-sleeved T-shirt under and a sweater vest on top, and you have yourself a chic, cosy autumnal look.

They’re perfect for evening  

As Carrie proves, anything can be made evening-ready with the right accessories. Her plaid iteration errs on the casual end of the shirt spectrum, but a slouchy white or pale blue version is easily dressed up for occasions. Add a fancy skirt (silk, sequins or velvet will do) and statement earrings à la Carrie.
