The Men's Button Down Shirt Gets a Reinvention

Leave it to women to have so much creativity, and never enough clothes in their already packed closets to have to wander to the other side of the closet... aka: your babe's side of the closet (unless you're single #sorrynotsorry, because you could totally double up your wardrobe).

Anyway, there are times when I get bouts of endless creativity, and because I always have "nothing to wear," I kinda, sorta wander over to my babe's side of the closet and end up discovering better ways to wear his clothes.

With this super simple outfit, I wore one of his shirts as a strapless top, make sure the shirt is long sleeved. All I did was button it up, left about  3-4 buttons unbuttoned on top, wrapped the sleeves around my waist and bam! New top, people! I seriously loved it because it was super mega comfy, and nobody knew it was my babe's shirt until I told you so. This is such a quick trick and you can basically use your man's shirts in so many ways. Try wearing one as a skirt (same steps as above), or if you're not super tall, you can wear them as a shirt dress; belted or un-belted.

To all the single ladies, just take a button-down shirt from your dad's closet, or from your brother or roomie. If you are forever alone with no men in your life, you're not completely screwed, you can still go out and buy any men's shirt. If all else fails, just buy a women's button down one or two sizes larger than your  usual size.
