i bought 4 american apparel shirts (it was in impluse buy, they were only 5 bucks!)

the shirts are 2xl…box-y and long sleeved…

what can i do to make them look cute and fun?

i was thinking fold up the sleeves to a 3/4s type thing…wear with black tights and put a black belt around it?

exactly… belts and tights are always the answer to oversized shirts..

just dont be afraid to experiment with colors..
black looks good with anything.. but you can tweak it a bit..

Also depends how long they are on you, you can wear them as a dress with just a belt to accentuate your waist.

if theyre too short to wear as a dress, you could always just wear them off the sholder with super skinny jeans and a long necklace. keep it simple :)

YES! Do the 80’s thing. I’d fold them up to your elbows, actually (if you can), wear black tights, a belt (like you said), and maybe some cute dangly earrings. (:

Wear a large cinch belt around the waist. Or you can use one of the shirts to make DIY shoulder pads as shown here:http://niceandshiny.blogspot.com/2009/12/all-im-seeing-are-stillettos-i-guess-i.html. Then add a belt and black leggings, etc. Cut the neck line to make it an off the shoulder shirt. Cut out the sides and wear a long beaded necklace. Theres so many things you could do!

I agree with the cutting them up idea. AA shirts are relatively good quality, so they’re a good base for most any kind of project. Try cutting off the sleeves and giving the shirt a deep U-neck with oversized armholes, then wear like a tunic over a tube bra/top. Or, cut off the bottom of the shirt (just bellow the armpits), cut to desired length, then take in the sides and hem the top edge to make a jersey pencil skirt. OR, I don’t remember if AA shirts have side seams? If no, then cut one LONG strand of jersey from the shirt (cut around and around the shirt, in a spiral). Pull on the strand (or really long rope by now) until it curls onto itself and forms a kind of thin strand. Then wrap/layer and make into a scarf/necklace.

You could cut the sleeves on one and the bottom off and make it into a crop top, or just cut the sleeves off to make into an oversized tank like already mentioned. If you’re good with altering you could also make one into a boobtube dress or top. With any left over material you could cut it into small strands, thread some beads onto the strands, tie them all together and make a layered jersey necklace.
