As much as I love clothes, I also like wearing my boyfriend’s clothes. This can work for boyfriends who are the same size as you or those who are bigger than you. The perk of having my boyfriend being bigger than I am is that I can turn most of his clothes into tunics or dresses. So this week, ladies, I’m going to tell you how to turn your boyfriend’s clothing into a cute outfit. For all you single ladies, you can buy a few men’s clothing items to add to your wardrobe, and women’s clothing stores also have clothing that is inspired by men’s clothing.
When it comes to shirts, a guy’s button up is my favorite thing to wear, and there are so many ways you can wear them. I usually just pair up a button up with a belt, skinny jeans, jeggings or leggings and boots or flats. If the shirt is a bit more tailored to body shape, then just pair it with leggings. Instead of using a belt, you can find a tie matching the shirt and use that as a belt. A tie can also be used as a headband. You can even tie the button up and pair it with a cardigan.
Guy’s white t-shirts and wife beaters can be turned into outfits. Depending on how the shirt fits you, I would just pair it with a snug skirt and tights with flats. You can wear leggings and a girly cardigan with the t-shirt too.
Nothing is better than snuggling up in your boyfriend’s hoodie or sweater that still has his cologne on it. You can take the sweater or cardigan and do the same thing with button ups – belt them up and pair them with leggings and you are good to go. Jackets can also be borrowed, but that depends on the fit. If a jacket hangs off you like a blanket, I would advise not wearing it unless you guys are already out and you’re cold. If you and your boyfriend are closer in size, you can also borrow his blazers. Add a few pins to them, roll up the sleeves, add a girly tank top underneath and you are good to go. If you want your own jacket or blazer you can find the boyfriend jackets and blazers in women sizes so you don’t have to steal your boyfriend’s clothing.
Now, I did think about the boyfriend jeans, but they’re not for everyone. Not everyone can fit in them, and honestly, I would not wear jeans that look like they are about to fall off of me. However, if you are comfortable about it then I would suggest wearing a snug t-shirt along with the jeans so it doesn’t look like all of your clothes will fall of you.
I hate admitting this, but some of the articles of clothing that I have belong to an ex. The best way to wear your ex’s clothing without having them recognize it is to do small alterations. I would suggest adding lace, brooches, or rhinestones and sequins (in moderation, let’s not be Snookie here).
