Wear your boyfriend’s clothes, of course! We can all agree that there is nothing more comfortable than slipping into your boyfriend’s oversized hoodie and snuggling up in the evenings. But, those oversized clothes need not be just for staying in and snuggling up. They can be turned into fashion statements, and we are here to show you how.
Lucky for you, the fashion world is going through a bit of a revolution (when has it not?) and ideas like gender-fluid fashion and androgynous dressing are being bandied about. So why don’t you hop on that band wagon and try out these styles with your boyfriends’ clothes? Here are some pieces worth stealing from your man’s wardrobe, and let’s hope he does not feel bad that you are wearing his clothes better than he ever did!
His button-down shirt
Whether you wear it over a dress, jeans or a pair of shorts, embrace the oversize and wear it cinched at the waist with a wide belt. Or wear it with the buttons left open, over a tank top and roll the sleeves up for a casual look.
If you have been eyeing his sweatshirt for some time, now is the time to ‘borrow’ it. Wear the sweatshirt with ultra-girly elements like lace or sequinned skirts, to give it a feminine spin. You could even wear them on a pair of skinny leggings and pair it with heels for an evening look.
His endless collection of t-shirts
All men love their t-shirts. And that is very good news for girls! Rummage through his wardrobe, grab your favourite t-shirt from his collection and wear it with shorts or even leggings. You could also tuck it into your jeans for a casual look. Roll up the sleeves and wear chunky jewellery with it to give it some oomph.
The term ‘boyfriend jeans’ did not just drop out of nowhere. Wearing loose, baggy, sometime torn jeans has been in style for a long time. It gives that grunge-rock look and look very good paired with dark eyes and a fedora (again, from your boyo’s wardrobe). Wear a big belt to hold up the jeans and team it with a form-fitting tank top.
There is something incredibly alluring about a jacket worn loosely as a cape over a form-fitted dress. Or you could even wear it with leather leggings and heels and a tank top. If the sleeves are too long, don’t feel shy to scrunch up the sleeves for an effortlessly chic look.
