Student Fashion: Oversized Office Look

by Jessica Braun Gervais | November 13th, 2014   

I am a firm believer that with enough creativity and careful planning, any trend can be incorporated into something office appropriate.  I am also  a firm believer in comfort, especially when at work.  For me, nothing says “comfort” better than being swallowed by my favorite sweaters, shirts and pants.

When incorporating the oversized look into your wardrobe, it’s important to keep everything clean and crisp by limiting your outfit to one oversized item and styling it properly.

The Oversized T-shirt Dress

On it’s own, the Monki Oversized T-shirt Dress looks like a night gown, but with some simple styling tips, this oversized shirt can go from sleepwear to office perfection!  Start by putting on a skinny belt to add shape and definition to the dress. Next add some tights (not leggings, tights!) and a heeled bootie. If you’re daring, add color tights with sleek black stiletto.

The Oversized Sweater

Wrapping up in a sweater, such as the Roomy and Michele Grey Oversized Sweater reminds me of curling up beside the fireplace with my favorite blanket on a cold winter night.  To bring this homey piece to the office, throw the sweater over a form-fitting dress with a mid-calf or over-the-knee boot. Add a long statement necklace for glam to complete the look.

The Oversized Pant

You don’t want oversized pants to be too lose or baggy.  Go with a high-waited option that is fitted on top, such as the Basic High-Waisted Palazzo Pants from Charlotte Russe.  Keep the pants the focus by tucking in a crisp button-up and pairing the duo with a simple stiletto.
