How to wear oversized tees

By Gavin Jewkes, 27 June 2014

If you're a TOWIE or Geordie Shore cast member, look away now, because you're not going to like what we've got to say. The skin-tight tee's days are numbered: it's time to usher in a new era of baggier, oversized T-shirts. Ones, dare we say, which don't cling to a six-pack or reveal how chilly your nips are.

Anyone with a keen sartorial eye probably already knows this, and has clocked the meteoric rise of longer lengths and boxier fits (as confirmed by a number of designers who presented at this month's London Collections: Men). But we've enlisted a handful of ASOS Insiders* to demonstrate how easily these exploded styles can be integrated into your wardrobe and add a cool, modern edge to your look.

Here's blogger/designer Joel McLoughlin wearing his black longline T-shirt as part of a sporty streetwear outfit. The longer length is barely noticeable, but it acts as a clean, simple base layer and creates a slimmer, elongated torso.

Jefferson Pires is the founder of the SchoolBoyCouture blog, and wears his longline tee with shorts for a fresh summer look. Giving Pharrell a run for his money, Jefferson accessorises with a Vivienne Westwood hat and a load of tattoos. Naturally.

For more ways to wear longline/oversized tops, check out Scott Emery and Dipak Vadera. These guys both know how it's done and can give you a few ideas about how to style them up for casual and smart occasions over the summer.
