What is important to remember before you revise your loved one’s wardrobe and decide about wearing your boyfriend’s clothes?

Rule #1: You should wear your man’s clothes somewhere outside the intimate home environment only if you are relatively comparable in size.

If you can wrap his shirt around yourself three times, you’d better go to a men’s clothing store and buy items of comparable size, and leave your man’s shirt for romantic home breakfast on Saturday morning.

If there is no dramatic difference in size between you and your man, you can borrow almost everything in his wardrobe, except for structural cut clothes (pants, jackets). The most important thing is to combine these clothes correctly (and do not forget to ask the owner for permission to avoid unnecessary family dramas).

So, if you are ready to experiment, then we will revise his T-shirts.


Men’s T-shirts are not only good for sleeping in them, but they are also great as a “bottom layer” in a variety of combinations, especially printed T-shirts.

The fashion for oversize clothes has made all men’s knitwear relevant to us. You can wear sweatshirts, cardigans, and men’s sweaters of rough knitting anywhere this autumn and winter.

This is a micro-trend that’s unlikely to be relevant in a year, so use this opportunity right now. Big men’s jean jackets are worn with tight jeans or miniskirts, with men’s T-shirt or sweatshirt underneath.

I have written about men’s shirts (especially a simple white men’s shirt) before. Despite the common stereotype, it is better to buy a white men’s shirt of your size in a men’s clothing store than to wear your man’s one. This is a thing of a structural cut, and it has a stiff collar, so if the shirt is very large, it turns out not to be stylish. You can wear not only white shirts, by the way. Blue shirts are much more versatile and you can use them to create very interesting sets.

But soft flannel men’s plaid shirts are another thing. Such shirts have a soft collar, and the fabric is well-draped, so you can wear them as an alternative to jackets and light jean jackets. These shirts combine well with accent costume jewelry and dress-skirts and high-heeled shoes.

The fashion of minimalism has made the men’s laconic design a real macro trend, and today we can find such watches in the women’s lines of almost any brand, but is there anything comparable to a real men’s watch?
