(EX) Boyfriend Tee
Borrowing the “look from the boys” has been a lasting trend over the past few seasons. A trend that many people LOVE and others feel as if they can’t really get into. I’ve heard females say things like, “I’m a girl and I have a body that I want to show off. Why would I hide it with huge long coats and oversized everything’s?” I shutter. Because they’re awesome. And because – why not?
Do you feel like you can’t wear menswear coats? Are boyfriend jeans just not your style because you would look like the actual boy? Not into Oxford shoes or loafers? Those are problems, here’s my easy solution to them.
Borrow his t-shirt!
This is a fantastic idea because of the following things:
1. It’s free
2. It’s usually worn in and very comfy
3. It’s never gonna be that tight (unless your boobs are huge) – sorry!
4. It will smell good (although not guaranteed). Could just smell – woof.
This one is “borrowed” alright — AKA never being returned — and it’s my favorite! Perfect shade of grey (no shade intended)!
Wearing with black! As if I would wear it with another color. Shown 2 different ways. On both occasions paired with a high waisted black pencil skirt from previous Altuzarra post. It’s important to pair your exbf tee with a dressier skirt to tone down the dressiness of the skirt and to keep the overall boyfriend look more feminine although still super casual. Shoe choices are my “half and half shoes” – meaning I’m wearing slip on sneakers for my commute and heels during the day or for after work drinks (you can’t see them anyway).

Also try pairing with black skinnies or medium rinse jeans, serious moto boots and a black moto jacket for an edgier look!
