Fashion has always been about expressing yourself to the world, and that means wearing exactly what you want, when you want, regardless of whether your favourite styles are marketed for men or for women.
In recent years, it’s become clear that people don’t want to be governed by pre-conceived fashion norms, and building looks that cross the gender divide is one of the easiest ways to create unique, inclusive, and sustainable looks.
That’s why we’ve put together some inspiration on how our iconic men’s pieces can just as easily be styled into statement, oversized womenswear looks. From hitting-the-town to lowkey comfortwear, from sweater vests to boyfriend jeans, here are our best ‘Borrowed from the Boys’ looks for this summer and beyond.
One of the pieces that most naturally lends itself to a stylish oversized look is a baggy shirt. It’s a capsule wardrobe staple that, as if by magic, offers a plethora of looks depending on how you style it.
They can be paired with shorts and trainers for a casual, summer-ready look, or just as easily paired with heels and high-waisted trousers for a more elevated outfit. For those chillier days, they can be styled with relaxed-fit, boyfriend jeans (more on these later…) to complete a look that will take you from brunch to the office, to date night, and beyond.
If you’re really looking to make a summertime statement, chuck on a structured jacket and necklace to really make your oversized shirt pop. Check out our button-down Oxford Shirt for a classic, smart-casual essential, or our Vertical Stripe Resort Shirt for an oversized fit that’s beach-ready and bursting with colour.
