Dey Tuk R Threads!
I drank coffee in a way too fashionable, not to mention way too expensive, café today and it dawned on me that all the women around me were wearing a uniform of ’boyfriend jeans’ and blazers. Yup. For those of you who don’t know: in fashion, mainly ready-to-wear, ‘boyfriend’ is any style of women’s clothing that was approriated from the male wardrobe and modified. Examples include aforementioned blazers and jeans, tailored shirts and coats. In actuality the stuff is just looser in appearance and fit than most women’s garb though still very much designed for the female form. Just google the term ‘boyfriend jeans’ and you get a whopping 63 millions hits. The whole thing made me think where did I see that before? Well here is an example, Linda Evangelista, photographed by Peter Lindbergh for Italian Vogue, October 1989 (via). OG supermodels make everything look so much better, and they still do today.
