It may not be socially acceptable to steal boyfriends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t steal their clothes. But if you don’t have a significant other, don’t worry—all your favorite brands are coming out with a baggy chic look.
Before we go any further, let me just first clarify the difference between boyfriend and hobo, besides the fact that one is a “yes” and the other a “definitely maybe.” Boyfriend looks like you just borrowed an article of clothing from him on your way to class (emphasis on one baggy piece).
Hobo, on the other hand, is oversized styles all over à la Mary Kate Olsen (who I love, don’t get me wrong). When done right, which is a rarity, hobo can actually be cute and trendy. In most cases, let’s just say it goes slightly awry.
So, fellow readers, it’s up to you which baggy chic look you choose. But we shall focus on boyfriend today! This week’s Fashionista opted for a baggy button down from her boyfriend to add a pop of color and style to her look. I love how she added a pair of Oxford heels and skinny jeans to keep her outfit distinctly feminine, though. The great thing about the boyfriend shirt is that it balances out the tight-fitting jeans and shirt she’s wearing.
Button down shirts aren’t the only way to accomplish the boyfriend look. Boyfriend jeans have been popping up everywhere as of late. These Jimmy Jimmy Skinny Paige jeans have a relaxed fit with just the right amount of slim fit. White is also a great color to start investing in, since Spring is just around the corner!
The ever-classic boyfriend blazer is also a good way to hop on the boyfriend train. Give this Silence & Noise blazer from Urban Outfitters a try. Black is always a classic choice, but consider buying a white blazer for the warmer times ahead. Either way, a boyfriend blazer is the perfect go-to jacket for a night out.
So instead of trying to find a boyfriend to fit your lifestyle, try to find a style that’s a boyfriend fit!
P.S. On a more sentimental note, this is my last post for CollegeFashionista. It’s been a blast, and please welcome in the next girls!
