5. Oversized shirt + shorts + sling bag + Velcro strap sandals
This is the perfect weekender ‘fit! Nevertheless star Lee Ho Jung proves that something as dressed down as this can look quite cool when done right! Just be sure to keep your overall color palette simple and cohesive to look put-together.
6. Oversized shirt + tennis skirt + baseball cap + socks + sneakers
Dress preppy and sporty with this outfit that you can easily hit the court in! Stick to muted neutral or sorbet colors for a fresh and easy vibe that isn’t all too athletic. Our reco is to pick a shirt with cool statement or graphic for a touch of fun to your look.
7. Oversized shirt + high-waist Bermuda shorts + belt + bucket bag

8. Oversized graphic tee + printed baggy pants + layered accessories + hair clamp

9. Oversized shirt + midi skirt + boots
Who says you can’t pair an oversized shirt with a long skirt? The trick is to opt for a midi that has a high or revealing slit so you still show off a sliver of skin. Pair with boots or sneakers on casual days, but you can even opt for heeled sandals or stilettos if you’d like to take this out to party.
10. Oversized shirt + mini skirt + baguette bag + socks + chunky sneakers
Proportion matters when it comes to this look that’s meant to put emphasis on your legs. If you plan to show them off, this is the style formula to consider. The length of your tee also covers up most of your skirt if you don’t want to show off your bum because of your bodycon bottoms.
11. Oversized shirt + straight-cut trousers + boots
Elevate your typical shirt and jeans outfit combo with a pair of cool boots to add some edge to your look. Be sure to pick a tee with a statement print to keep things interesting.
12. Oversized shirt + high-waist trousers + structured blazer + bucket hat
This style combo is quite popular among Korean celebs for good reason. The blazer obviously adds some structure to the look, while the trousers (be it a pair of denims or baggy chinos) help dress up the roomy shirt even further. Cop Dara's look and add a bucket hat for some streetwear flair.
