Oversized Tee (for petites) With A Purple Splash

Lately I’ve found myself wearing a lot of the following colours; camel, mauve (like a pinkish mauve) and taupe. Felt a bit la-dee-da… so naturally I got bored. So of course I had to start introducing brighter colours into my life. Hello bright purple! I found this fabulous scarf whilst doing a spot of vintage shopping at Camden Markets. It actually was a toss up between a vintage Givenchy neck scarf (£35.00 – I would have bargained lower!) or this £3.00 bundle of brightness. How could I say no? Although I may return for that designer vintage one too!

A tip for petites wearing an oversized shirt is to wear heels or higher shoes (if possible). It would give your outfit a good balance- dress it up a bit. It is very hard for petite frames to carry off a oversized shirt without looking like you’re drowning in it, so extra height helps. Also, make sure you wear something a little bit tighter for the lower half, such as leggings, tube skirt with stockings or skinny jeans. For a bit of lady shape (lol), add a skinny belt around your waist. Or if you prefer a bit of an androgynous look, let the shirt sag. I chose a bright scarf to balance out the dark clothing and give it a bit of a girly touch!

Have a bright day!
