I love my boyfriend...'s clothes!

Remeber the times, when there was frowned upon for women to wear pants? 
Well... you probobly can't be remembering that... 
Well... anyway... the times has changed! Radically
Now women are not only wearing pants, which were originally fashioned for men, but they have the guts to steal their man's garderobe and wear it as their own. Especially in the past year this huge new trend has overcome all the stylish girls. "Boyfriend... something".
But what is ‘"a boyfriend"? (yes it’s someone you kiss and hang around with, but we’re talking about fashion, not linguistics!) Something "boyfriend" is a piece of clothing you borrow from your guy and which consequently is a bit too large (ideally, unless your boyfriend weights 70 pounds and is 4 feet tall.) Of course all the brand names got hold of the trend and decided to create "boyfriend" for girls (a bit more tigh-fitting), the most famous ‘"boyfriend" are the boyfriend jeans, which can thank the stars for this success.
So let's get more into detail about what can you possibly wear from your guys closet and look "uber stylish"?
  • His suit jacket. Throw it on over a cute dress, roll up the sleeves, and you’re ready for the night out!

  • His button-up shirt. There is nothing cuter than a girl hanging out at home all buttoned up in her guy’s shirt. Going out? Wear it as a top by adding a cute belt and some leggings!

    First brave lady who wore her man's $40 Gap dress shirt with a Vera Wang skirt to an Academy Award show was Sharon Stone, back in 1998!

  • His accessories. Grab his watch and wear it as a chunky bracelet!
  • His favorite t-shirt. The one he wears the most will probably be super soft and worn in. Just make sure you give it back! Unless it looks better on you, than
  • His jeans. Think boyfriend cut - a little loose on you, sitting low on the hips. (Borrow his belt if you need to). Roll up the cuffs and add a pair of heels to girl them up!

    This trend was kick-started by Victoria Beckham, who may have influenced her buddy Katie Holmes, then Rachel Bilson, Reese Witherspoon, Heidi Klum and Amanda Peet all got in on the act.
    Seems like we have a full blown trend on our hands here.
What do you love to borrow from your man?


  1. I can't borrow my boyfriends stuff yet (because right now there's no boyfriend to steal from) :P But when there is, I'd be borrowing his shirts all the time. I just love the idea of walking around in one on a lazy Sunday morning ;)

  2. thats a great post!i especially love to steal things to wear from my husband!

  3. I love boyfriend blazers! So stylish! :)

  4. I do not currently have a boyfriend, but still love all the clothes that you mentioned here. I agree, all this boyfriend stuff is really hot. I got a couple cute boyfriend blazers and oversized tee's on spring break that I love. Hmmm..maybe I should work on getting a boyfriend with a good wardrobe, would cost me less money buying this stuff in stores..hehe. Hope your break went well, and your week is great!
