The boyfriend shirt (literally) & how to style it

As you all know how we all love to be in our man’s shirt, there’s just another feel to it, like the love enveloping you all over, isn’t it ? And what works in our favor is the trend ‘boyfriend shirt’ is in !

So how about some fashionable excuses to wear your boyfriend shirt ?

One of my Shitiz’s shirt shrunk a bit after the first wash, won’t be revealing the name of the brand but it’s a well knownΒ men wear brand. Anyhow, it was me hitting the jackpot, especially because it’s a white shirt, a classic !

Since then I have been wearing the shirt way too often than am supposed to and here are a few outfit ideas of how you can too wear your boyfriend shirt.

Tucked under the pleated skirt, it’s an androgynous look with a feminine twist, apt for a formal-ish lunchΒ !

Over printed pants.

And this one’s for girls who are bit shy to wear tube dresses, how about this wearing over it ?!

Further, you can wear the boyfriend shirt tucked in shorts or denim skirt, throw some cute accessories over & some wedges to walk in & you are good to go for brunches too.

It’s all about a little imagination and the desire to experiment, to re-invent your wardrobe, sometimes that’s all you need over buying new stuff (reminds me of the shopping ban I am on..phew..)

Much Love.

    I know how much effort a post like this takes. The last time I did a one skirt five ways post, I was tired! Loved the post! My favourite is the palazzo pant one! Definitely going to recreate it!

    Way to go Pallavi. These are the exact type of things you should post on a regular basis. You have the expertise and you will have fun doing the background for such posts. Not to say the self indulgence πŸ˜›
    Keep them coming πŸ™‚
