Have you ever found yourself in possession of your boyfriend’s old shirts? I know I’m guilty of that a million times over. I used to hoard my boyfriend’s sweatshirts so often in college! It got to the point where I would even wear them to class on a laundry day. While I may have had practical reasons for doing so, wearing his clothes also gave me the opportunity to style a menswear item to fit my personal style! It was pretty fun, and I still do it from time to time.
Today, I thought I would share one of my favorite (and easiest!) outfits featuring my boyfriend‘s old button-down. Fun fact: He actually wore this on our first date! Now, it’s mine to style to perfection. Here, I’ve styled it into a very casual weekend outfit by layering it over a crop top. I wanted to give my look a punky, street-style appearance, and a graphic crop top brought the look I wanted.
Many times (but not all), a boyfriend’s old top is baggier or larger than you are used to. At least, this is the case for me! I can’t wear his button-down shirts like I can wear mine. I’ve opted for a layering style here to craft a look that I won’t drown in. The crop top draws attention to my waist, while the button-down shirt keeps it laid back!
Classic low-rise skinnies and combat boots complete my casual street-chic outfit. How do you style your boyfriend’s old shirts, beauties? I would love to hear how you transition menswear into womenswear!
