There’s a pretty straightforward way to crack this whole boyfriend dressing business without only swiping right on guys whose outfits you like the look of: buy guys’ clothes, duh.

But the trickier part can be styling them just so, to nail that nonchalant give-a-shit-about-boundaries sexiness that Catherine de Maigret’s got sussed in blazers and slacks, rather than looking like you slept at your boyfriend’s house and forgot to pack a change of clothes.

So take heed from these tips...

Body-con denim says feminine and considered without ruining a baggy boyfriend T-shirt’s casual vibes
