BORROWED FROM THE (LITTLE) BOYS

One of my favorite styling tricks lately (seen here and here) is to take an oversized shirt and tie it at the hem. The best part? It’s easy to do with a slightly boxier boys’ shirt like these…

The fit is perfect for scrunching up the sleeves and knotting the bottom! You’d be surprised at how generous the fit is (particularly with Ralph Lauren where the fit goes up to size 20!) and how much lower the price can be relative to comparable women’s designs. Just be sure to check the size chart before you order! Have any of you ever worn boys’ shirts before? Don’t knock it ’til you try it! 🙂

  1. I shop the boys and girls departments, especially Crew Cuts. Last fall, as I complained about gaining (a little) weight, my girlfriend said to me in the JCrew dressing rooms…”You can wear children’s clothing from JCrew! I don’t want to hear a word about the weight you’ve gained!” 😉

  2. Yes! I wear J Crew’s men’s blue oxford shirts nonstop in the winter… under sweaters, tucked in on their own, over leggings, and you can belt them too.

  3. YES!! even better, I get my brother’s hand-me-downs. He’s three and a half years younger, but six inches taller, so they’re the perfect shirts to tailor to my size. Love them!!

  4. I wore one of my brothers button downs once as a costume…I should’ve thought about doing this a long time ago!!
    One of my biggest style secrets is wearing girls size clothing 🙂
