This is what comes to mind most often when oversized shirts are mentioned.

Comfort is a big reason for the popularity of oversized shirts, so it’s no surprise that they’re often worn as it is.

For a more urban vibe, the oversized shirt can be paired with loose pants.

Tucked in

Another way to style an oversized shirt is to tuck it into your bottoms.

This style works best with a high-waisted bottom, as tucking the shirt in accentuates the waist.

It gives the illusion of a smaller waist and being slimmer without compromising on comfort.

For guys, there are different pants to pair the shirt with. For girls, you can pair the shirt with a skirt too!

This style can be done with short pants too! Other than pairing it with the usual denim shorts, a nice color pants work well too.

Half-tucked in

Not sure whether to tuck your shirt in or not?

No worries, because there is a third option: the half-tuck.

As the name itself implies, the half-tuck involves tucking in only half of your shirt—usually the front half, while leaving the back loose.

This half-tucked style is more casual chic, combining the effortless untucked style and the more chic tucked style.

MAMAMOO’s Moonbyul is a fan of the half-tuck style, and she’s been seen sporting the style on more than one occasion!

Cropped tee

Oversized shirts can also be turned into a cropped top with a simple knot.

Girls, this is a great way to transform an oversized shirt into a top that accentuates your waist. Great for dance practices too!

Apart from knotting the shirt at the front, you can also tie it at the back, making it look even more like a regular cropped top.
