How I wear oversized denim...

I admit it, I have never been cool. I can't pull off daring haircuts or some of the more extreme trends but I have always admired people who can. I have been wanting to try out a denim shirt ever since I saw my girl Claire looking so good in one and when I saw this oversized one on the Monki website I fell in love. I'm not quite sure that I pull it off but it has been the perfect light cover-up for casual days at work and to make certain things (like this cut out back t-shirt) more wearable. I was kindly given these cords by my friend Matilda and they are ridiculously comfy (think curled up on the sofa in your pyjamas kind of cosy) I'm not quite brave enough to wear denim on denim yet so my various cord trousers will have to suffice for now...

Denim shirt: Monki, t-shirt: Primark, cords: Gap via Matilda, shoes: Office, belt: Primark

I washed my hair with the Umberto Giannini 'Incredible Body' range here and you can really tell, my hair was absolutely huge when I woke up! Paired with the denim shirt and peachy lipstick though, I'm not sure if I look like I have fallen through an 80s wormhole?! Please excuse my bleary eyes here, early starts will do that to a girl! 


Monki clothes are known for being rather oversized but after an unfortunate incident with a pair of trousers that wouldn't encompass my hips, I thought that I would be better off sizing up than down. This shirt however is nearly as big as my hair and I felt a bit 'schlumpy' in it if truth be told. Belting it seemed to solve the reservations I was having and I trotted off to work quite happy in the end...


Are you brave enough to wear denim on denim? How would you style this denim shirt?

I really like the shirt, like you, so not bold enough for scary neon and 90's crop tops, but this is a lovely spring outfit.

I love oversized shirts & this is perfect, the belt makes it look a bit more pulled together too & you don't look 'schlumpy' at all! :)

Love how you styled the denim shirt. Looks fab. I have a similar one which I've never worn before, so I'm excited to try it now.
