How to rock the Boyfriend's Sweatshirt


Hey public holiday, is that you I see lurking in that corner? Who else is excited about the extra long weekend? *doing my happy dance* LOL. Okay that’s enough lazy girl jubilation, long time no style post eh? This one is for those of you that don’t let your boyfriends enjoy their clothes, here’s a super chilled and stylish way to rock that sweatshirt you snatched.

I know that awesome feeling of ‘acquiring’ your partner’s shirt and if you like oversize wears then that’s a big plus for you but most ladies (at least some of the ones I know) just tend to wear the shirts to bed, I mean we know how pricey men stuff can be so why wear the clothes to bed alone? I am guilty of this too sha. I snatched this two-toned sweatshirt from the Mr. and after I found out the price, I knew it was not just going to be for my room alone so I decided to wear it out and rock it better than him too!

Pairing oversize shirts especially if you are on the small size like me can be a tad bit annoying because you don’t want the shirt to swallow you but you also want to slay in it and then it is easy to look very ratchet in oversize wears so you would want to avoid that too. I picked my ever loyal ripped jeans to pair with the shirt and went for a studded cap for that street style appeal. Black heels took care of not letting the shirt seem too long and this green cross-body bag I am currently loving added a pop of color to the outfit. Normally I would have rolled up the sleeves of the shirt but  I liked how slouchy it looks with the sleeves down.








It is the perfect season for sweatshirts so what do you think of this look and how would you rock yours? Please drop your comments!

  18. […] Co-incidentally, Ijenna and I picked white and black floral outfits for the brunch. Mine was made the night before because I had some issues with my initial outfit so I had to buy this material after work and give to my tailor to make me the fastest thing (a kimono) LOL. While Ijenna went for an all vintage look with her button-down dress (she says her mum would be so happy to see her in a feminine dress LOL), her chunky heels, red bag and vintage sunglasses, I went for a very easy combination look; a kimono, camisole and denim. My tailor was very tired and miscalculated the length she measured for the kimono hence the improvised flair at the bottom. I paired it with a white visor, black sandals, and my favorite green bag from my last post. […]
