Whilst out Christmas shopping recently, I fell foul of the classic habit of allowing myself to be distracted from gift matters at hand by matters of the fashion variety. In this instance it was a boyfriend shirt in Gap.
I was drawn to its soft shape, red & navy check…and the 40% off label hanging enticely about its person. And so it came to pass that, together with a number of other pieces that I declared essential for holiday season relaxed dressing, it ended up in my basket and was swiftly ushered home to join its new family in my wardrobe.
Having long been a fan of the boyfriend blazer and the proud owner of a pair of boyfriend jeans, I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to get on board with the shirt.
