Somewhere between the 90s oversized band T-shirts, we used to wear, and today’s 20-years-older-selves stealing our men’s shirts and tees to linger a little bit longer over coffee one morning, being told how sexy we looked – something happened. A sartorial click in our lives that comes with age, love for fashion, and the need to look effortless and relaxed rather than skin-tight-glamour-puss uncomfortable.
There is no doubt that we are, grown-up women, with a penchant for all men’s clothes. Once we gave boyfriend jeans and boyfriend blazers a try, we were hooked! Not on men, but on their assets. From there on, everything went down the hill a few sizes higher, and that, coming from a girl who’s got more girly days rather than Tomboyish moments, such as myself, is goddamn liberating.
1. OFFICE LOOK
A basic boyfriend t-shirt, scoop neck, V-cut, or around the neck, with or without graphic message can act like a perfect office blouse. It will look amazing tucked into a pencil skirt, office pants, with heels and a blazer on top. A statement necklace can add the right amount of femininity alongside a dash of lipstick and coloured nails.
2. GLAMOUR CHIC
A boyfriend tee can be the perfect balance piece in a super glamorous outfit: stiletto heels, bold lips, big hair, shorts, skinny jeans, mini dress.
Think Beyonce or Rihanna. Those 2 can wear their boyfriend t-shirts as dresses with either sneakers or heels and look amazing. Make sure the t-shirt is long enough and you’ll feel so sexy and relaxed in it. Guaranteed. I love this look with bold lips and some extra bling.
4. EVERYDAY CASUAL
The boyfriend tee is the perfect piece when you don’t know what to wear. Just throw one on with your skinny jeans or cutoffs, those espadrilles, sneakers or gladiator sandals and sunglasses and shut the front door.
5. OVERSIZED EVERYTHING
Think hobo-chic, cause it is chic. Oversized denim shorts or jeans can look amazing with an even bigger sized t-shirt. It’s casual Sunday brunch.
