In fashion design, primarily in ready-to-wear lines, *boyfriend* is any
style of women's clothing that was modified from a corresponding men's
garment. Examples include boyfriend jackets, boyfriend jeans, and boyfriend
blazers, which are often more unisex or looser in appearance and fit than
most women's jackets or trousers, though still designed for the female
form.

The origin of boyfriend fashion is borrowing and wearing a boyfriend's
clothes—his distressed jeans, his band tees, his dress shirts, his
blazers, his cardigan. The trend expanded when many brands such as Gap,
Forever 21, and H&M began to create boyfriend fashion products or
men's-inspired fashion.

The boyfriend blazer has been featured in many of the spring 2010 walks
such as Charlotte Ronson, Cynthia Rowley, and Elie Tahari, and the trend
continued into 2011. There are two main important ways to wear the look:
making it oversized, and rolling up the sleeves. The boyfriend trend is all
about wearing clothes that look a size too big for the wearer. It is
recommended to only go up one size. By rolling up the sleeves, it makes the
look more feminine and balances it out while implying that the sleeves
would be too long for the wearer's arms. The boyfriend blazer ranges in
many different shades ranging from classic hues of black and gray to
whites, pinks, and neons. They are very versatile
