Borrowing from the boys

Girl wearing boys shirt..borrowing from the man in her life is the now not-so-secret style hack of the 21st-century woman. A shirt here, a jumper there, perhaps without realizing leaving the closet of said man rather bare. Little did we know women have been stealing men’s styles as early as the 1870s.

We have fashion revolutionaries such as Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent to thank for bringing the masculine silhouette to the female masses and making it fashionable. As well, we would be nothing without the icons resurrecting and refreshing the image over the decades.


Looking at the evolution from Marlene Dietrich to Audrey Hepburn to Bianca Jagger their styles all share a masculine element, however they each focus on a different staple. Whether it is a men’s shirt or a whole suit there are many ways you can add to your wardrobe to channel the same effortlessness as the icons of the past. We LOVE a girl wearing boys shirt!
