The Boyfriend

June 22, 2015

The boyfriend jeans and the boyfriend shirt are the epitome of masculine fashion statement pieces that you will find mixed into every women’s wardrobe from all around the world. You can mix in masculine pieces with very feminine pieces to keep a sense of balance or you can go all the way androgynous, which is actually a style I rarely produce but often admire and I obviously executed the former today.

So, when I asked my fiancé for his shirt this morning his reply was “my shirt?!” with that look like why the hell do you want my shirt, he then proceeded to say he was throwing away one of his shirts because it is too small for him and none the less fit me perfectly. Well, as perfectly as a men’s shirt is to fit a women and let’s be honest I will need to get my hands on a couple more of his button downs as he gets rid of them.

The Boyfriend shirt layered over denim mini short provides a little more coverage to the look, always a good idea to cover up top if showing a lot of leg…

I think preppy looks have an inherit feminine charm so the Lilly Pulitzer belt, Hampton Green cape with ankle wrap around blue and white striped Ann Taylor shoes all pull the look together.

    Hahah funny story! Fortunately for you, he was getting rid of his shirts and you can snag them up! It looks amazing on you. I love how you paired the loose pieces with those tiny shorts. It makes for a great combination 🙂

    I’ve been seeing a lot of the boyfriend shirt going around and I have to say, I LOVE it. I myself am a huge fan of androgynous looks and so more masculine pieces really entice me! You look wonderful, by the way! Your green blazer is amazing!
