The 2012 Olympics are finally coming! We will surely spend more time relaxing, watching games, getting together with family and friends, or-encouraged by the athletes-working out more. But more importantly, we want to stay stylish while doing so.
When thinking of outfits for relaxing days, I always came up with sportswear and menswear clothing. In them, we don’t need to worry about makeup, matching jewelry or shoes. I especially love menswear clothing- the loose cut can let us enjoy good meals and forget about diets.
Moreover, the tough material and oversized silhouette form an attractive contrast against our feminine frame and delicate skin–That’s why the women in men’s suits were called “the women even women can adore” back to last century when women were only allowed to wear skirts and dresses. And that’s also why we yearn for Yves Saint Laurent ‘s Le Smoking.
Playing with the pieces from boyfriend’s or husband’s closets can always bring surprise–their ties can be our belts, shirts can be our dresses, even jeans go greatly with with our statement shoes or classic pumps.
Today, inspired by our featured ladies above, I put together four outfits for different occasions: relaxing on the beach, exercising in the gym, watching games with your boyfriend or shopping with your BFEs. Discover your favorite look from either above or below and don’t forget to share!
