Loosen Up: 17 Great Oversized Shirts From £19.99

An oversized shirt is a great summer staple we could not and would not be without. We’ve found 18 of the best for throwing over summer frocks, jeans or swimwear for a classic look.

Whether you wear yours with jeans or thrown over a bikini on the beach, all you need add to a really good oversized shirt is a pair of outsize sunnies, a pair of sandals and a summery basket, et voila: a box-fresh full summer glam look at the in seconds. Boxy, striped, boyfriend-style, loose linen or tailored, we love them all. The only rule? Go big or go home – the looser the better.
