Drop Dead Gorgeous in Boyfriend Steals

From Boyfriend blazers, his band t-shirts to his priced oxfords, we women have raided them all. And why shouldn’t we, stealing from your boyfriend’s wardrobe is chic. We sure love our frothy dresses and floral prints, but sometimes the comfort and sexiness of androgyny is all one needs. The laid-back cool vibe that a piece of boyfriend clothing is capable of is unlike any other.

The trend that started back in 2009 with Katie Holmes refuses to die down. Instead of becoming stale, it has achieved more of a cult status and indispensible place in today’s styling sensibilities. The idea is to wear androgynous clothing, a size bigger than you. And though you can actually steal from your boyfriend, brands manufacture “boyfriend clothing” made for the female form. Here’s a quick list of all the things that should be on your radar.

The boyfriend blazer can add an edge even to your most feminine dress. Wear it with rolled up sleeves, to give an impression that the sleeves are too long for you. If it is too long for you, it will give off an over-coat vibe which looks lovely over shorts.

Boyfriend Shirt (and tees)

Oversized button down can be belted over skirts or if long enough can be simply worn as shirt dresses. Thrown over a dress, they act like jackets. You can also pair them up simply with a pair of leggings and maybe add a brooch. The boyfriend band tee can be worn over shorts, tucked in or out. Rihanna loves boyfriend shirts.

Perfected by Katie Holmes, it is still a celebrity favorite. But real people love the boyfriend jeans as well. Wear with crop tops, button downs or a peplum to stay feminine. You can experiment with torn and distressed denim as well different colors like white.

Boyfriend Bermudas

Hot on the runway and the street, this is the ideal summer wear. Be careful if you have short legs though, wear Bermuda shorts are only slightly longer than shorts and choose similar hues for top and bottom instead of extreme contrast.

Moccasins, loafers, le smoking slippers, oxfords all have origins in the men’s wardrobe. Today some women love them even more than ballerinas. Wearing these with pants and shorts is great, but the real spin is when you pair them up with a feminine dress.

This has to be our personal favorite. While bow ties with pants, or short suits look sexy we love how you can even wear them with a shirt dress or a button down tucked in a skirt. Printed and embellished ones (think spikes or Swarovskis) also steal our heart away.

Tips to carry off Boyfriend steals

• Some feminine touches look great with boyfriend steals. Think red lipstick or heels with boyfriend jeans.

• Adding some jewelry like a statement necklace or a watch with some bracelets is a good idea.

• Add a fedora if you want the look to get more androgynous instead.

• If it is your first time sporting androgyny, start with the boyfriend blazer, it is easiest to pair and pull-off.

• The idea is never to get consumed in the clothing, if you are petite be extra careful to only go one size up.
