Katie Holmes found a peculiar way to attest her love for her then-husband, Tom Cruise, back in August 2008. Shifting through the streets of Manhattan, the actress was the first to show off boyfriend jeans. The trend, which still remains, attests comfort and, most importantly, accessibility. After all, all you have to do is to sneak into your boyfriend's closet.
“Nothing to wear? Check your boyfriend's closet” has then become a personal motto for me — although it's my dad's closet we're talking about. Stealing flannel button-ups and white oversized T-shirts turned out to be a specialty. The conclusion? Masculine pieces might just be what you need for your look to obtain that certain je ne sais quoi. An indescribable flair that, when it comes to today's Fashionista look, can only be explained by a particular outsized shirt that looks as if it came straight from her boyfriend's closet. The top finds its perfect complements in super skinny jeans and high-heeled suede oxfords. For a French call for apathy, classic Ray Ban glasses were added.
If you sing along with Beyoncé during the Single Ladies' chorus, no need to worry: shopping men goods means having way more fun than trying to fit in size zero jeans. My new favorite huge T-shirt was acquired in a little house hidden in Gávea named Roy Store. If you don't happen to be anywhere near this neighborhood, try searching the masculine racks of Zara. You never know what you're going to find. Maybe it's that je ne sais quoi.
