Steal A Boyfriend: Or At Least His Jacket

February 6, 2008 by SheFindsJessica

Maybe it's because my boyfriends have either been 5'7'' or over 6'2'', but I've never accumulated that drawer of stolen boyfriend t-shirts. They were either too big or too disturbingly close to my own size. (Don't even ask about the trauma of realizing that my short boyfriend had borrowed my track pants. I'm still in therapy.) So, lately I've been casting a doubtful eye at the emerging boyfriend jacket trend. Not only is it slightly reminiscent of the 80s oversized top and leggings trend, but it's one step away from creating that imaginary doctor boyfriend for your ten year high school reunion. After all, shouldn't the boyfriend come before the jacket?

However, should you decide to embark upon a torrid affair with the not-so-virginal-or-respectful-of-property-rights look, here are some faves:

Acne Owner Black Suit Jacket gives off a slight tuxedo vibe, with exaggerated pockets and serious shoulder pads. ($230, originally $575)

Alexander Wang's Double Breasted Jacket is a bit more form-fitting and casual. ($650)

This Corduroy Boyfriend Jacket ($29) enters into lady-like territory with its plum purple hue. 

Pair the Elizabeth and James Boyfriend Blazer by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen with a flowy dress for a chic downtown look. ($395)
