The Boyfriend Shirt

Once in a while a trend comes along where we borrow from the boys - literally. There are so many ways to wear his blue & white striped men's button-down shirt, or his white v-neck tee and for some reason, the color white is always ideal. In fashion design, primarily in ready-to-wear lines, boyfriend is any style of women's clothing that was modified from a corresponding men's garment. Examples include boyfriend jackets, boyfriend jeans, and boyfriend blazers, which are often more unisex or looser in appearance and fit than most women's jackets or trousers, though still designed for the female form. 

There are two main important ways to wear the look: making it oversized, and rolling up the sleeves. The boyfriend trend is all about wearing clothes that look a size too big for the wearer. It is recommended to only go up one size. By rolling up the sleeves, it makes the look more feminine and balances it out while implying that the sleeves would be too long for the wearer's arms. 

I've worn loose clothing almost all my life. For some odd reason, tight and fitted clothing isn't really my style and I opt for loose, airy & comfortable clothing. So the boyfriend shirt trend is what I've followed unintentionally in fact haha! Personally, I would prefer pairing up a dull, striped, loose, oversized boyfriend shirt, with a bright coloured bottom like I've worn red palazzo pants from StalkBuyLove here! 

I've been wanting to style the boyfriend shirt for ages now but never stumbled across a good one considering I'm Single! Uh-Umm! I recently came across two amazing shirts one of which I styled here. Can't wait to shoot the other one! Le bestie, P, styled her daddy's shirt in a super fun look on her blog too! Wait till she uploads hers! Hope you enjoy my look! I had so much fun while shooting it!
