STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Boyfriend Cardigan

Style Advice of the Week

We love a good floral print and a pretty twirl skirt as much as the next girl, but here's the deal: Sometimes, we just want to embrace our inner tomboy. In those moments, we say, bring on the denim-on-denim, the big white shirt, and the worn-to-bits concert tees— because, really, there's something about a little androgyny that is super sexy. So, where do we turn to when we look for this kind of look? Boyfriend style clothing. As a part of this style, cardigans are the ultimate wardrobe staple. The cardigan works as a style workhorse during all seasons, and also serve as a perfect anytime-layer of coziness. A simple, oversize construct is what makes a boyfriend's cardigan the kind of shape we want to emulate—except with female-friendly dimensions. This week's Fashionsita is wearing bold, emerald colored denim jeans, a simple black tank and boyfriend cardigan, mixing just the right amount of feminity and comfort. For the ultimate comfort boyfriend style, try pairing a boyrfriend cardigan with boyfriend jeans, plain white tee and flats. To make it more feminine, pairing an outfit like this with a chunky, colorful necklace will make the overall look more lady like. Boyfriend style clothing, is not only stylish but extremely accessible. That's right—these genuine dudes' duds, but with a little creative styling, they'll look just right with your regular femme finds. So, start raiding your brother's, boyfriend's or even your dad's closet and start rocking this look!
