We have prepared some tips and tricks on how you could style those items, depending on occasion:
THE OVERSIZED SWEATER/T-SHIRT
Now depending on the weather outside, you can make use of both of those items. What’s really awesome about men’s clothes is that very often the graphics on the shirts and sweaters look amazingly cool and unique, which you very rarely find in the women’s section. Pair those oversized tops with your favorite skinny jeans, be they simple or ripped, and you’ve got yourself a chic look. To make the look a bit dressier, add a white button down shirt underneath the sweater and instead of sneakers, opt for ankle booties or even knee high boots. The contrasting effects will complement each other really well.
And while we’re at it, let’s talk a bit more about layering. In case you like one of his t-shirts so much, you can try and tuck it in your jeans, add a cool belt, and a comfy cardigan and plaid shirt over it. This is an ideal casual outfit that somehow manages to look comfortable and not sloppy at all at the same time.
Almost everyone loves flannels. They’re comfortable, easy to style, and bring out your inner hipster like no other. If so it happens that you don’t have one in your closet, think about borrow one from you boyfriend. They’re great to wear over tank tops, or just as to add some more detail by tying it around your waist. This coupled up with a pair of distressed jeans and a black leather jacket can be a great day to day look, or you could even dress it up a bit and wear it to a party.
Probably every girl’s favorite item to steal from her SO, the oversized hoodie is perfect to wear for both lounging around the house and styling it to go to class. One way to wear it and make the outfit more feminine is to add a leather skirt underneath and a pair of knee high boots. This way it will highlight your legs and maintain your feminine features. However, if you wish to go for an all baggy and comfy outfit, then feel free to wear your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans with it and a pair of cool sneakers.
WHITE BUTTON DOWN
A few year ago other people might’ve looked weird at you if you wore your boyfriend’s white button down shirt at work or to an event. However, things have drastically changed now and you see this item being sold in women’s section in plenty of stores, making it almost a staple piece.

If you want to wear the button down shirt to work or just for a casual day, you can either wear it untucked with distressed or embellished jeans to add a little detailing. If you feel like it’s still too simple, add some statement accessories such as earrings or a necklace. To make it a little bit more office appropriate, you always tuck it in a pencil skirt. That way it will look effortless but put together at the same time, the skirt still accentuating your waist and pulling the look together.
