BORROWING FROM THE BOYS

August 1, 2017

These day’s, I’ll walk into a store and b-line to the men’s department. While I love ruffle sleeves and designer frills, my truest self lies in a giant oversized tee. Preferably with a high society dog printed on it.

When it comes to everyday shirting, I’m a strong supporter of borrowing from the boys. You may remember this Amiri top from Barneys. Or this Interview top I stole from my ex-boyfriend (thanks, David!). Or this blog post of me re-structuring Dad’s old button up.

The trick to not looking like an actual boy? Accessories! Gold hoops, arm candy, stacks of rings, and a chain crossbody all totally transform the look. (Bonus points if you’ve got a great set of nails too)

You’ll be seeing more menswear in the near future…I went on a bit of a shopping spree in the men’s department at Barney’s.

Click to shop the look:

Loewe shirt | Stella McCartney shoes (sold out) | JW Anderson bag | vintage Oliver Peoples sunglasses (vintage)

    I looooove to wear men’s t-shirts! There is nothing better than an oversized shirt. It always looks good.

    I am such a sucker for oversized/masculine pieces lately. I agree the key is adding the feminine touch through accessories. Love love your look this week, gal!! Happy Sunday

    I love it!! Always looking at the mens sections too, you just find some of the best overlooked and oversized things to mix in. I don’t want to be in super feminine stuff all the time, but you are right in finding that balance. Love the hoops!
