18 Oversized Shirts We Love

The ultimate smart-casual item, we couldn’t love these crisp roomy shirts more.

As every good fashion maven knows, there are some items that are wardrobe non-negotiables. And sitting up there betwixt great jeans and a good little black dress is the classic, oversized boyfriend shirt. Every wardrobe – regardless of whether it belongs to a fashionista or not – needs at least one really good quality, 100 per cent cotton, throw-on-over-a-pair-of-jeans/swimsuit/dress example. They are comfortable, look effortlessly stylish and, paired with some pretty jewellery (we favour chunky gold), take you perfectly from day to night. Ideal for everything from school runs to the beach to casual brunches, there’s few scenarios in which they don’t look just right – especially when worn with a pair of suitably large sunglasses for extra easy glamour. Do size up and wear them loose. Here’s our selection of the best ones online right now.
