Why wear your boyfriend's shirt when you can have your own?
So why do we call it the "Boyfriend shirt" anyway?
Well, according to good ole' Wikipedia,
"The origin of boyfriend fashion is borrowing and wearing a boyfriend's clothes—his distressed jeans, his band tees, his dress shirts, his blazers, his cardigan. The trend expanded when many brands such as Gap, Forever 21, H&M, and Urban Outfitters began to create boyfriend fashion products or men's-inspiredfashion."
I think I like this version better, much more feminine and flattering. Wear it with jeans untucked or tied at the waist with a skirt.
