Watch: How to Wear a Men’s Shirt as a Dress (3 Ways)!

When I saw this video, I freaked out, ran into our closet, and literally ripped on of my partner’s good button-downs from the hanger. In short: Yes, it works, but it depends on your size. I’m a curvy size 8 and my partner is very tall and slim and wears a Medium men’s shirt (and he likes slim cut)—so this worked, but just barely and it was tight.

HOWever, I’m definitely going to look for an extra large men’s shirt in a cool print the next time I’m at Sal’s (that’s Salvation Army) —in a size Men’s large. Considering how close I was with my man’s Medium hipster-skinny shirts, a typical men’s Large dress shirt should be perfect!

Super-duper easy reuse! Love.
