Just a few short months ago, I wrote about how to upstyle your mom's vintage sweater. I love adding elements of masculinity to my everyday style, so this time I'm dressing up one of my dad's old sweaters. This green pullover was most definitely a clutch find. I'm mad in love with its colorful crisp lines separating each pattern change.
In my opinion, when women wear men's apparel, as long as it isn't suiting or trousers, an imperfect fit is very acceptable. In fact, I think oversized pullovers can be great for creating that relaxed, drapey look. Unlike women's relaxed fits which are often the intent of the design, pulling a men's knit over your feminine silhouette can naturally create similar effects. Shoulder seams for men are generally broader, so the top of the sleeves often will fall past your shoulders, allowing us to intentionally create that "unintentional" dolman look. If the length is too long, tuck in the front for a hi-low effect.
And your boyfriend thought stealing his shirts and jeans were enough. Bring on the Boyfriend Sweaters, too!
