Get The Look

Menswear trends 2023 – bigger is better. Oversized styles are dominating men’s fashion trends this year, bringing exaggerated silhouettes and loose, roomy fits into the spotlight.

From tops to bottoms, menswear is embracing a scaled-up aesthetic that throws tradition and slim tailoring to the wind. If you’re looking to update your wardrobe with of-the-moment pieces, oversize is all the rage and has true staying power.

Oversized T-Shirts

One of the easiest ways to sport the oversized trend is with a T shirt. Boxy, roomy tees are everywhere in 2023, offering a comfortable, laidback look. Mainline Menswear carries crew neck and v-neck tees with a boxier fit through the body and sleeves.

Whether you opt for a solid colour, graphic print, or distressed detail, an oversized white tee pairs perfectly with jeans or shorts for an on-trend casual outfit. Go for a tee that’s at least one size up from your regular fit for a stylishly exaggerated silhouette.

Oversized Hoodies and Sweatshirts

Laid-back hoodies and sweatshirts are menswear staples, and oversized versions are hot for 2023. An oversized hoodie or crew neck sweatshirt has a boxier fit through the body and sleeves for a cosy slouchy look.

Mainline Menswear has oversized hoodies in solid neutrals and bright colours, some with distressed elements for extra flair. Throw on an oversize sweatshirt over jeans and sneaks for an effortless weekend look. Go up one or two sizes for the trendy baggy fit and enjoy more room.

Oversized Button Down Shirts

Want to add an oversized touch to a more polished look? Go for an exaggerated dress shirt. Many brands now offer button-downs, flannels, and Cuban collar shirts in oversized designs with roomy torsos and billowy sleeves for a more dramatic silhouette.

Keep the rest of your look fitted – say, skinny jeans and dress shoes – and let an oversize Oxford shirt provide the wow factor. Leave it untucked for maximum effect.

Oversized Denim Jackets

Denim jackets are perennial staples, and the oversized denim jacket is set to rule 2023. Relaxed trucker jackets and other loose denim jacket styles allow guys to layer on top while keeping to the scaled-up theme. Distressed details amp up the casual vibe. Mainline Menswear has cool oversized denim jackets in vintage washes to pair with graphic tees and joggers this year.

Baggy Pants and Shorts

On the bottom, wide-leg pants and shorts are back in a big way. Pleated trousers, cargo pants, chinos, joggers and other styles offer roomy fits. For casual looks, chunky denim and cargo shorts are on-trend choices this year. Aim for shorts that extend past the knee and baggy pants that sit low and billowy through the leg for prime appeal. Finish the look with chunky dad trainers.

Oversized Layering

Don’t shy away from wearing oversize pieces together. Oversized T-shirts, hoodies, and shirts were made for layering, so pile them on! Mix up sizing to find your perfect fit – say, a large tee with an XL hoodie.

Large shirts under regular jackets provide cool oversized proportions for a modern edge. Get creative and have fun with the layering trend to find your own personal style.


Big is Beautiful

In 2023, almost no category is left out of the oversize boom. From streetwear to sophisticated looks, exaggerated silhouettes are taking centre stage this year. The trend allows guys to play with proportions and embrace the roomy “drowning in it” look that many designers are currently serving. If slim fits feel restrictive, go bold with boxier pieces. At Mainline Menswear, you’ll find trending styles including T-shirts, hoodies, shirts, denim jackets, baggy bottoms, and perfect layering pieces.

Of course, there’s always a limit. Go oversized but don’t go overboard… Not many people could get away with Sam Smith’s supersized 16XL look from the Barbie Pink Carpet.
