There is a reason why clothes intended for the opposite sex has become popular amongst women. Menswear looks are looser, softer and more comfortable to wear. Plus, they’re cheaper when they’re on sale.
Boyfriend shirts can offer to make you look more of an “undone chic” with a dash of loose casual feel that’s just perfect for spring and summer. Or it could let you embrace your more tomboyish side and give effortless androgyny.
The problem is, it seemed pretty hard to pair them up with your more feminine wardrobe. Here are some fashion tips for styling boyfriend shirt and how to make them look good on you.
Since boyfriend shirts are slouchy and baggy, you can balance the look with a form-fitting bottom. Slip on a pair of leggings or a fit skirt. When wearing skirt, you can leave the shirt casually hanging, inserted into the skirt or gather the hem on one side and tie it into a knot.
The Sexy Triangle
True, your boyfriend’s button down shirt is huge on you and most of the time, that doesn’t allow you to show off your form. I say, make the best of its looseness. Try buttoning the first and second buttons of the shirt and leave the rest of it open. This results to a triangle of your skin peeking out which gives a sexy appeal.
Boyfriend shirts are shapeless. However you can make up on this tiny problem through your accessories. Pick a more structured bag, solid jewelries and shoes.
If the shirt is absolutely big, turn it into a dress. Wear a belt around your waist. Too conservative for that? No worries. You can wear shorts underneath and still maintain the summer feel of the shirt.
Layer layer layer
You can use the boyfriend shirt as a cover up. You can leave it loose or have one half inserted. Wear it over your bandeau or fitting top, too.
Go all the way
If you’re going to be wearing your boyfriend’s shirt then might as well go all the way with an androgynous look, right? Finish it up with a pair of military pants or ripped jeans and accessorize with a solid colored bag and oxford shoes.
