The only time I wear my boyfriend's jacket is when its cold out and he offers it to me. Or if I'm cold at home and feel like sitting in something comfy. lol

what about a letterman jacket? any tips?

Hi! Definitely love that school-spirit look. For some inspiration check out Givenchy, Rag & Bone, and Proenza Schouler! We think it looks amazing with a simple color scheme (black & white + any accent colors you like), pleated skirt and button up shirt. Our best advice would be take the school theme as inspiration and run with it any way you like. Go sporty or school girl depending on your style!

I love this article. I always have problems figuring out what size to get for oversized outerwear because I'm so tiny, but this sheds a bit more light!

Thanks for the tips! I love the denim jacket and chic blazer!

Fantastic article- I am in huge favor of the boyfriend jacket especially when it comes in the form of a blazer. I'm a major sucker for masculine-inspired outerwear.

button up shirts are also good too! especially for the summer

I absolutely love this article! Blake Jacobsen and I do this constantly! My favorite look definitely has to be the blazer.

You got that UO army jacket for only $10? Nice! I love the Chic Blazer look...I remember seeing that photo on Chictopia and loving it. You guys did an awesome job with this article! Unfortunately my boyfriend mostly wears American Apparel zip up hoodies...someone should seriously find a way to dress those up.
irisanddaniel on August 08
Yeah! From a sale last summer. Thanks so much! :) The hoodies thing is a dilemma.. maybe with a monochrome look they would work? Especially since they come in so many colors, the casual tone would be less noticeable in a head to toe color look, haha.

now if only there were a web sight for guy's that don't know how to dress. I feel sorry when i look at the guys at my school and see a hot mess.

Great article! I'm definitely a lover of the look, especially JeanGriege's take on it. A boyfriend jacket allows you to wear really girly pieces without looking to fru-fru.

Safari Jane & Coach Blue

Daniel Again with my athleticism obsession, I basically look like a coach with the bright school-blue jacket tied around my waist and an athletic t-shirt, haha. I can’t help but love the 90s-...

Overalls & Sports

Daniel I don’t know why but I’m becoming obsessed with sport/athletic clothing, maybe it’s the graphic contrast of colors or thicker fabrics. It feeds my love for those two things...
red hat - white keith haring shirt - sky blue shirt


We wore these outfits on 7/21/11, when we went to Comic-Con. Daniel I decided to embrace the popular arts with some Pop Art! I love this Keith Haring t-shirt I got at Urban Outfitters for.. I think...
