POSHEstyle: The Boyfriend Shirt

No closet should be without the versatility of a button down shirt and the “boyfriend shirt’ is merely an oversized version of this classic piece worn by a woman with confidence and grace. There is an undeniable sexiness about a woman rocking a menswear inspired look that I personally find captivating and empowering.

I found this steal of a boyfriend shirt a few weeks ago at JoeFresh while on a makeover excursion with one of my clients (see post “Make Me Over”). Even though it already had a boyfriend fit, I bought it a size up from my usual as I often do with oversized clothing as I prefer the looser look. 

On what was a beautiful fall day, I wore it with a pencil leather skirt from my clothing line Laposhe (contact here to pre-order) to keep the tone of the overall look strong but still sophisticated and elegant. A pair of white Christian Louboutin python pigalle polished the look and my Ray-Ban wayfarer sunnies kept the cool factor present. I added a little glitz and glam in the mix with a bejeweled necklace from our shop (coming soon) and kept the other accessories minimalistic; wearing only my Chanel J12 watch, diamond stud earrings and a few midi rings. 

I loved the simplicity and ease of this look. It’s an interesting paradox when a look considered masculine can make a woman feel so feminine.
