This SS’21, let your double XL be the face of your comfort! Slip in those husband’s shirts of yours, sippin’ that cold coffee, and make comfort your fashion statement. Ah! Went to look for that big baggy shirt? Go on! 😉
Call it ‘the boyfriend shirt’ or ‘husband’s shirt’, it is undoubtedly one of the most classic pieces in any wardrobe! Earlier in the days when ladies were allowed to wear pants for specific occasions like sports etc., the shirt wasn’t much promoted. But when working husbands were out and women needed to step up, they would alter their husband’s shirts and deck ’em up to go to work. If we talk about the origin of boyfriend’s double XL shirts’ fashion, “borrow” would be the word. The habit of women borrowing and wearing their partner’s big baggy clothing slowly became a big fashion trend.
For this Spring Summer 2021, the mannish button-up is back with a feminine spin. After all, a well-crafted piece of menswear always adds a little androgyny and power to an ensemble. Not to forget, the easy-going shape is the perfect match for the lazy lady fashion!
Fashion Glide Through Double XL
Ramps and runways this season were brimming with a feeling of comfort-in-home style. Valentino gave new energy to the oversized shirts in bold pink colours with delicate white lacings.
While Simon Porte Jacquemus cropped his shirt under the bust in a midriff-baring cut, Nili Lotan and Nanushka offered everyday staples in a more muted palette. Nanushka’s shirt dress, with its fitted waist and a gentle A-line silhouette, made it an ideal layering piece.
Balenciaga with its double XL shirts and long oversized sleeves was all about classic comfort. Balmain’s slightly bigger shirts were perfect for layering, while Etro’s striped shirts were downright up for grabs!
The XL Town
Celebs all over the globe were lounging in the comfort of oversized attires. When it comes to big shirting, how can they stay behind? Be it the Jenner sisters, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner, both were seen flaunting those loose silhouettes with as much chic as they carry everywhere. Gal Gadot, Gigi Hadid, Victoria Beckham, and Hillary Duff, all were caught relaxing in the double XLs.
Take Hailey Bieber’s big orange shirt brimming with that lazy vibe, or Kate Hudson’s lazy lounge look – husband’s shirt was The star-on-stars!
On the home front too, the husband’s shirt was the highlight of any wardrobe. From Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone, and Karisma Kapoor, to Radhika Apte, Masaba Gupta, and Karishma Tanna, that big oversized double XL was THE attire of any and all occasions!
