STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: I Got It From Him

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: I Got It From Him

After three months of wearing out all your favorite summer clothes, us Fashionistas/os need a new wardrobe on a college budget. Although heading to the mall may seem like the best option at first, I suggest you turn to the man in your life’s closet instead. Pick from one of the three B’s: best friend, boyfriend or brother and go from there. There is a whole other world out there when you stop limiting your style based on gender. Don’t believe me? Check out how this Fashionista pulled it off.

Although there are some obstacles to overcome with this style choice, the benefits will soon outweigh the cons. For example, if his button-up is too oversized for your taste, do like this Fashionista and tie it up. Not only does this fix your problem, but it also instantly adds a bow-like detail to the otherwise minimal look. She updated it even more by rolling up the sleeves for a more summer appropriate outfit. By matching the button-up with white, high-waisted denim and simple Birkenstocks, this Fashionista has achieved maximum comfort and style.

The best part about this look is how easily it can be turned from day to night. By switching out the Birkenstocks for a pair of nude strappy heels or heeled black bootie and throwing on some accessories, this previously casual ensemble is now perfect for going out with friends before summer ends. And you thought vintage Levi’s were the only good thing to come from a man’s closet…

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My thought process with this look was basically that if I’m already going to take my boyfriend’s T-shirts and button-ups, I might as well make them look cute.”
