Trend Alert: Boyfriend Shirts

Not so fast, Rih! Let me examine your cool top before you rush off to dinner. I love how boyfriend shirts give off a sexy, masculine appeal. In fact, I have a couple from a past boyfriend that have lasted me longer than our relationship. Ha. When wearing this looser cut, keep the rest of your outfit feminine via accessories, a la Rihanna — skinny jeans, skirts, or tailored shorts. Word to the wise: check out the men's section for a greater variety. A men's extra-small fits me perfectly . . .

love, love, LOVE boyfriend shirts!! they're so comfortable that i practically wear them everywhere :) i love the look of them so much that i don't just stop at button downs i even buy the plain white undershirts. at first i had a really hard time finding ones that fit well since i'm super petite but once i found one, more seemed to pop up everywhere! however i found that for petite girls, the best ones are from the boys' section at Zara.

I love this look, but I worry about looking bulky b/c I am sort of busty. Does anyone have any suggestions?

They're a staple in my wardrobe! I was once wearing this loose white shirt with rolled jeans and braided sandals, and a prof told me I looked 'sexy.' A bit awkward, but...

I love men's shirts, but I have the hardest time finding ones that fit me. (I can't stand darts in my button-front shirts.) Someone told me to check out Brooks Brothers' boys section, so that's on my list. Fun post, Fab!

I used to sleep in this vintage men's RL buttondown that's like 3 sizes too big for me. It was super comfortable and I really liked the quality of the garment. I just found it in my closet when I went to visit my parents last month, and thought, "Why not wear this during the day?" I think it's disheveled-chic.
