You’ve heard of boyfriend jeans, boyfriend shirts and the like. And sometimes the clothes you’re wearing are literally from his closet. But what if the tables turned and he was rifling through your closet? Maybe he’s looking for inspiration, or maybe he’s just looking for a night-on-the-town outfit. Whatever the reason, the runways are suggesting that this could become your reality, since many a vision has included skirts, dresses, blouses and more. Here’s what’s considered ‘girlfriend dressing’ right now. Will he be into it?
Is your guy ready for ‘girlfriend dressing’?
BlousesRuffle sleeves: check. Ruffle neckline: check. Ornate brooch-collar: check.
Even grandma's going to be envious of this Gucci creation. Getty Images
BlousesBlouses needn't be demure. This Robert Geller design features an open neckline and all-over floral motif. Perfect for beach parties or retiring to the lanai. Getty Images
BlousesGucci had a number of blouses. It's a movement! And oh golly does this one move, with its ribbon collar that sways with each stride. Like Seinfeld's puffy shirt, only slightly less voluminous. (And pink!)Getty Images
SkirtsDries Van Noten opted for a skirt over pants. Which really doesn't make sense since you are already wearing pants. Getty Images
SkirtsTwo trends in one! At Givenchy, not only is the model wearing a silky blouse, but he's outfitted with a button-front skirt. Look at this trend-setter!Getty Images
SkirtsNot only is girlfriend dressing a thing (sort of), it has real world applications. Seen here at Thom Browne: a conservative funeral outfit. Getty Images
SkirtsOkay, seriously, Dries, pick pants or a skirt. No one will do this. Getty Images
DressesGivenchy had skirts, blouses and dresses. This '90s jumper-style dress looks like it was literally stolen from a young girl's closet. Good or bad? Hey, you decide. Getty Images
DressesAt Dior Homme, the idea of a dress was somewhat evolved. A tailored, floral piece served as an "under-garment," which, when layerd with a jacket, appeared as though it were a dainty spring frock. That, and pants. Getty Images
DressesSeriously, Rick Owens is a skilled designer, but this, um, dress, is absolutely disgusting.Getty Images
ShawlsKeeping warm on a cold night isn't feminine, but shawls certainly have their inspiration in the world of older women. We bet this model at Burberry Prorsum feels like a golden guy.Getty Images
BroochesAgain, menswear seems to be borrowing from antiques and style befitting older, sophisticated women. These grandiose brooch buttons at JW Anderson definitely give off an old dame vibe. Getty Images
Cinched WaistsCinched waists: not just for women anymore? Is an hourglass figure universal? It's too soon to tell.Getty Images
Killer HeelsHeels for everyone. These insane heels are made for men, but how many will actually attempt these? Getty Images
