The Boyfriend’s Back
The boyfriend’s back! As modeled by Ashley Tisdale, pair this season’s destructed boyfriend jeans or more preppy boyfriend chinos with a cropped tee, hi-lo top, or open knit sweater. Layer on a bold belt buckle (we’re all about flaunting a logo), then add a chunky pair of platform sandals or wedges to add a decidedly girly edge. Oversized aviators keep the androgynous look going, since these classic frames are adored by both the sexes. Plan a date with the boyfriend for next weekend!

His or hers. Marc Jacobs does justice to the iconic aviator with these oversized frames. Fabulous style is in the details: metal frames and gradient lenses with logo lettering at left lens and at enamel-inlaid temples. Layer with any look!
