Guys gear on girls just looks so great and its super easy to achieve.
Here’s a few simple ideas on how to steal your style from the boys.
With some scissors, tape, cardboard, a little bleach and a men’s T-shirt, you can create a cool custom shirt.
Cut out the design you want on cardboard and taking a 50/50 mix of bleach and water, spray bleach across the shirt for a faint and faded look. Even old and comfy flannel shirts can be great for cutting up, combining, and creating a new stylish scarf.
If you can dig up an old collared men’s shirt or go through the sales rack of stores like Tarocash until you find a colour or pattern that you like. For those with some sewing experience – or those looking to get started, this men’s dress shirt can be turned into a beautiful and feminine tunic, but it requires sewing and attention to detail. Don’t be afraid of using your creativity, scissors and a sewing machine. Cut off the sleeves, consider using a braid halter in the back to give it a unique style.
Jeans made for boys are arguably the most comfortable jeans.
Look for jeans at #ThriftStores that are beat up or pull out some of those old jeans deep in the drawers or hidden at the bottom of the closet. Jeans with holes are great for that authentic and rugged look.
If the man in your life has outgrown his jeans, you can use those as well! For a softer look, use bleach on the jeans or use fabric paint and apply the shapes and designs you want.
It’s all part of one of my favorite aesthetics – ‘I don’t care cool’
