By Madisen Quick | September 7, 2016 | Style & Beauty

Effortless silhouettes and chic androgyny are turning everything in the women's section "boyfriend style" and we're seriously digging it. Update your own closet with these ultra-cool shirtdresses, schoolboy loaders, and straight-legged trousers. Your boyfriend can thank us later.

Club Monaco

This effortless silk shirt dress features roll-up sleeves and a rounded hem for a sophisticated upgrade on the oh-so-comfortable oversized button up.

J. Crew

Don't get us wrong, skinny jeans have their time and place, but there's something about slipping into a pair of lived-in boyfriend jeans that just says "weekend". The slightly slimmed leg means you can even wear the relaxed look for Sunday brunch with an eyelet tank and wedges.
