I’ve been borrowing a lot from ‘his’ wardrobe recently. A crisp white shirt, a hoodie, a jacket, they’re all making their way into my closet and I’ll be honest, I probably won’t be giving them back any time soon! He hasn’t seemed to have noticed (yet) but it got me thinking what is it about wearing men’s clothes that makes us feel so feminine? Why do we love his clothes so much?!
IT’S HIS / IT’S MINE
One of the things I like about wearing his stuff is how well they go with my own clothes (go figure). Like his white shirt, it’s loose and oversized, it doesn’t hug my shape or show off that much skin but it looks so good on me! Maybe it’s because I feel closer to him when I wear it or maybe it’s the satisfaction of wearing something ‘forbidden’ but whatever it is, I’m on board!
This black and grey look is completely my own but entirely inspired by him. I have to say I love the tweed effect blazer with the loose boyfriend jeans and shirt with tie. The block heel boots and statement clutch make it more about me and less about him (the way it should be).
I wore this look on Saturday while running around Zurich with friends from Ireland. It was their first visit to the city so we tried to squeeze in as many of the sites and cafes as we could. I even managed to get coveted tickets for the Schoggi Tram. If you have diabetes it’s probably best to avoid! I also popped into H&M to get my 4 year old daughter a Halloween outfit for kindergarten (I’m not a ‘make it by hand’ kinda gal) and picked up the most amazing military style jacket for me, coming to the blog soon.
Go ahead, steal his stuff, see where it takes you. For inspiration, check out how I styled his tux shirt here!
I would love to know what you think about this look. Are you a fan of oversized proportions and loose silhouettes?
