People used to pair these over-sized shirts with the belted long shapes with funky stockings on women or the ballooned shirt balanced with mid-waist denim on men, this style definitely caught ones attention.
It is a safe area to experiment with according to the body structure, style. And this boring office wear is definitely setting some trends in the street too.
Famous fashion designers say, “The concept of the oversized shirt was basically taking a large shirt for a man and a woman wearing it or vice versa. Now it has been deconstructed and shaped in various forms. With androgyny being misused in fashion all over, it has now just become a trend. There is a certain sense of power and sensuality almost a subversive unsaid exchange. For us as a label, we look at it in more in form of shape and how we can alter the fit or volume by various cutting techniques.”
