If there’s anything more comfortable than your boyfriend’s shirts, we’ve never worn it. And that, my dears, is why we're loving this suddenly on trend look!

Wear it like him

Wear it like him

Start with the most traditional way to wear a button up. Keep your style classic with your sleeves down and your buttons up. This is a great look for a casual day of shopping and errands. You'll turn heads by wearing his shirt better than he ever could.

Roll up your sleeves

Roll up your sleeves

If you want a more casual way to wear your boyfriend button up, all you have to do is roll up your sleeves. Fold loose cuffs to make your sleeves any length you'd like. It's the perfect way to stay cool while wearing your button up in the summer months.

Tuck it in

Tuck it in

Wear your button up boyfriend shirt to work by tucking it in. The perfect pairing of a pencil skirt and boyfriend button up is a hit ensemble at the office. If you want to add some feminine flair, accessorize with a skinny belt or subtle necklace. Your coworkers will covet your fabulous fashion.

Use it as a cover up

Use it as a cover up

The best way to stick to your style and still add your button up boyfriend shirt is to use it as a cover up. Pick your favorite outfit -- a simple tank with a high waisted skirt or shorts work best -- and cover it up with your most comfortable button up and you've got the best blend of comfort and style. A look everyone will love.

Get tied up in it

If Britney Spears has taught us anything, it's that a tied up T-shirt looks great any day of the year. Pair your favorite button up boyfriend shirt with a flowing floral skirt or a pair of skinny jeans and you have the perfect casual outfit. Cuff your sleeves and add some bangle bracelets for added style.
