I’ve found that the most convenient thing about living in a dorm is the expansion of my closet. And no, I am definitely not talking about more closet space, (we all struggle with fitting our clothes in our tiny allotted closets), I am talking about being able to so easily borrow clothes from friends. The daily hassle of trying to figure out what to wear is made a million times easier when the person next door has a closet to steal from. Next time you go to borrow from a friend, knock on a boy’s door. Wearing men’s clothing can add a fun and unique twist to your style. Here are some looks I put together to inspire you to steal from your best guy friend.
This first outfit is as simple as it gets. Almost every boy in the world has an oversized concert tee. This Drake Summer Sixteen Tour shirt thrown over a pair of cut off Levi’s exudes a care-free attitude. I laced up my black high-top Chucks and added a velvet black choker around my neck. Style it up or style it down, a staple concert tee can go a long way.
Another insanely easy look to pull off with men’s clothing is the classic t-shirt and jeans. Rolling up the sleeves gives an edge to this men’s Supreme top that nicely pairs with the ripped and cuffed skinny light-washed jeans from Topshop. I put half my hair up to add some texture to the look and wore some round sunnies for a cool vibe. Black slip-on Vans finish up the style perfectly.
The big sweatshirt is no doubt the most frequently stolen item from a guy’s closet. This vintage Arizona State pullover could be a statement piece on game day or a cozy substitute for pajamas. Paired with cut off Levi’s and low-top grey Converse, this sweatshirt is comfortable and so easy to wear. For an extra pop of color, I added a cute maroon bow choker from Forever 21.
In this last look, I took a vintage fleece-lined denim jacket and dressed it up a bit. I rolled up the sleeves and threw it over a delicately-patterned Brandy Melville rust tank dress. Finishing the outfit with faux-suede camel-colored chunky heels from Target to emanate the 70’s.
