Blue Velvet: borrowed from the boys

An ode to the loose tee.

Confession: A great percentage of my t-shirt collection is comprised of men's shirts. And when I say "a great percentage," I mean 95%. Yep, it's one of those things that you simply can't help it shopping from a different section.

I mean, could I have done that? - that being skipping the men's department altogether; avoiding not only tees, but belts, beanies and the good ol' flannel shirt. Yes, absolutely. But why on earth would I buy awkward loose-in-some-places-tight-in-others tops when I can get the perfect Olsen drape just by venturing next door to the guys' shop? Somehow they already have the soft worn-in quality everybody (guy and girl included) loves, and us girls always have to wash multiple times before getting that ourselves.

But the best part about men's tees are that they always look effortless and extremely French when worn. So grab a guy's shirt, throw on a pair of denim cutoffs and some flatforms and call it a day/night!
