If you prefer to skip the boots and tees, a black skinny jeans skirt is equally as sophisticated as your oversized t-shirts with graphic prints. A thin, straight black skirt is always a safe bet when paired with any top. For example, if your sweater is a dark pink and your jeans are a dark blue, don’t match the color of your shoes to match your skirt – go with brown or dark green.

A great pair of sneakers such as a well-fitting grey leather boots with a skinny jeans skirt or flared jeans is a smart and flattering combination.

If you are choosing sneakers, try to wear something that is plain so it doesn’t draw too much attention to the bold print on your oversized tee. A white or black sports jersey is an ideal option because it simply makes your outfit complete.

Oversized t-shirts look great with a fitted cardigan sweater dress which can be accessorized with either a necklace or bracelets. The cardigan adds a touch of sophistication to your overall look.

A small cross-stitched design will do the trick.

Another great look for your oversized t-shirt and jeggings is a V-necked sleeveless t-shirt with skinny jeans cut in the crew or v-neck style. A blazer or tank top is perfect to round out the ensemble. A nice ankle length black dress with chunky heels or black pumps completes the look. This outfit will keep you warm and toasty in the winter and will allow you to show off your legs while still looking stylish.

If you like wearing vintage or thrift stores, you may want to add some vintage elements to your outfit for this look. A vintage anorak could be worn as an underneath sweater to give an extra layer of warmth and prevent the cold from getting to you. You could also team your oversized t-shirt with high boots or a lace-up ankle boot for a very chic look. These boots are often worn with skinny jeans, so you’ll be able to find a great pair of high boots that will accentuate your oversized t-shirts beautifully.
