How to wear oversized shirts as an apple shape

So I stole this button down shirt from my husband’s closet. The fact that it’s oversized on me works great with a fitted 3/4th sleeve black blazer because the sleeves look puffy. Billowy and puffy sleeves are all the rage right now. I folded the sleeve once to fit my shorter arms. I kept a few of the buttons on the collar unbuttoned so as to not shorten my neck further. The secret here is the on trend stretchy wide belt that cinches everything in, so the oversized shirt is full only on the arms. Keep your pencil skirt also fitted and right above the knee to not overwhelm the frame. Since the shirt is oversized, everything else needs to be compact and fitted.
