๐Ÿ˜THE BOYFRIEND CARDIGAN...or bomber๐Ÿ˜

" Hey girl, feel my sweater. Know what it's made of? Boyfriend material."

Happy Wednesday unicorns!! It's hump day!!! Happy dance! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿซ On this beautiful Wednesday morning we wanted to give you some style inspo for boyfriend cardigans!!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿป And of course we gotta give you a little background on boyfriend fashion in general. So it all starts with borrowing (we all know he ain't getting his distressed jeans or his oversized white tee back ๐Ÿ˜œ) your man's blazer, a band tee or one of his many cardigans. Then borrowing turns into owning and before you know it, you're a trendsetter! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ Then the trend becomes so big, reaching the far corners of the globe ๐ŸŒŽ (maybe a tad dramatic but it's still super popular ๐Ÿ˜‹) that it ends up on the runways and brands are creating men's-inspired fashion! What a whirlwind! 

The boyfriend trend is about wearing clothes that look just a little too big for the wearer. The look is supposed to be put-together and ready-to-wear without looking like you styled it two days in advance. Catch our drift!? Picking up what we're putting down!? Smelling what we're stepping in!? (Ewww ๐Ÿ’ฉ but you know what we mean ... Gum on our stilettos of course ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ ) In order to create this fab look, there are a couple of important points to consider! ๐Ÿ“‹ You want the boyfriend cardigan to be slightly oversized but you also want to roll up the sleeves to add a feminine touch to the overall look! ๐Ÿ˜‰

LESLIE: Happy Hump Day #StyleUnicorns! As you can see, my take on the boyfriend cardigan is the boyfriend bomber๐Ÿ‘€ (it's just more me and my style๐Ÿ˜‰) The idea behind the boyfriend cardigan or women wearing men's clothing has been around for quite sometime, we just put our own #SmartBlondes and Unicorn flair on it! I like to push the envelope with my style and how I choose to accessorize my looks so when my beautiful unicorn twin Lindsey wanted to showcase THE BOYFRIEND CARDIGAN my brain immediately went to a bomber jacket because well, bomber jackets look just as stylish and comfy-cute as cardigans or sweaters do! If you haven't tried a bodysuit by now, you seriously haven't lived!! (The only comparison is to running through a field of puppies and straight into the arms of a man with cotton candy and pizza waiting๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ•) The WOES BODYSUIT is super slimming, paired with either high waisted or low waisted denim, you can't go wrong! Oh and the hot pink heels are a first for me๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ now they're one of my favorite pairs! Always, always, always accessorize!๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ The entire outfit can be tied together with the perfect clutch, I chose a graphic one because well, Hey Babe!๐Ÿ˜‰

Another option that I would do if you decide your not feeling how the bomber jacket hangs is to take one of his oversized sweaters (we ALL know they smell marvelous๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜) and tuck part of it into either front pocket of your skinny jeans to show off your shape a bit and then you can have subtle reminders of him as you go through your day while looking slouchy-chic! I would also pair it with an ankle strap pointed toe or an open toe heel to add that feminine touch!

LINDSEY: This brings us to the outfit portion of our story. I chose a navy cardigan that is oversized yet tight in the sleeves. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป This is the perfect mix of boyfriend-inspired and girly! ๐Ÿ’‹ I could even roll up the sleeves during warmer weather or just because I wanted to change the vibe! โœŒ๐Ÿป๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ And can I just say how much I love this tank!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ Its perfect and represents all things me! Because let's be real, who doesn't love ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿพ, ๐ŸŒฎ, ๐Ÿ˜ด (and most important) ๐Ÿ’„?!?! Side note: I also love that there's an emoji for everything! Now back to the story! Ahem! ๐Ÿ“ฃ Shimmy into your fave dark-washed skinny jeans, maybe roll the cuff (or not depending on preference) and slide your freshly manicured ... Or is it pedicured? ๐Ÿค” ... Toes into a pointy-toe pump and call it a day! ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป These leopard Jessica Simpson's are to die for!! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Fun and funky!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ Alright babes, it is time for me to depart but don't forget to "borrow" your man's cardigan and rock it in the streets! You got this! Live long and prosper! ๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป
