One of the best parts about being married? Stealing my husband’s clothes. I’m completely joking, of course. But, in all seriousness, I have borrowed Brian’s shirts on more than one occasion. Case in point? This (almost) chambray button up shirt. I think I wear it more than he does. And that’s no joke. In fact, this is the second time I’ve worn it on this blog! The first time was here.
Obviously, it would be a lot more flattering if the shirt was tailored to fit me–especially in the back. Somehow, I always end up having lots of extra fabric in my back area! Even without tailoring however, I still think this look is super cute. I have a fondness for just about anything oversized and, as a plus, oversized tops make modest fashion really easy! Wearing oversized shirts and sweaters is difficult when you have a curvy body type, but it is do-able.
I paired the shirt with my dark blue skinny jeans to keep the look balanced. As a general rule of thumb, if you wear something oversized, it should be paired with something fitted. So boyfriend jeans/other baggy bottoms + fitted top or oversized top + fitted bottom. Skinny jeans–unlike unlike their close cousin, the legging–can be made modest with a small amount of effort, so they are my go-to for anything bulky on the top.
I also added a breezy, floral scarf for a pop of color. The shoes were chosen partially because they match the scarf and partially because I couldn’t find any clean socks! These shoes are more comfortable than most of my others to go sock-less in because they are flexible and breathable.
