Clothes for sharing
By Matt Glazebrook, 4 June 2015
Some things in life are better shared. From the first time she gets up to make you coffee in the morning wearing only your old T-shirt (she's a keeper) to the time you decide your own super skinny jeans aren't quite skinny enough and give hers a go (just us?), it should be clear that clothes fall into this category.
With that in mind and androgynous, unisex styles very much back on the catwalks (thanks Kanye), we've thrown together some outfits that will look equally ace on you or your girl. Whether you choose to wear both versions at the same time, like an awesome pair of uniformed swaglords, is entirely your prerogative.
Summer street goth
A lightweight black trench is your passport to both shower-sheltering summer practicality and serious hot-weather cool. Offering a sharper, fresher silhouette than going jacketless, a trench is also less bulky or stifling than a denim or bomber cover-up when the mercury rises. Pair with a black tee and navy cotton trousers and finish with some smart sandals for a street-ready take on summer smart/casj that'll smash it whatever your gender.
If you've got a girlfriend and a comfy hoodie, chances are they've already become acquainted – probably paired with PJ bottoms and no make-up. But did she know she'd be equally snug – and several degrees more fashionable – if she also borrowed your grey structured joggers, crisp white Oxford shirt and white sliders? She does now.
Serious Scandi schmutter
Minimalist all-white sneaks are this season's all-purpose essential to deliver you effortlessly from work to weekend in icy fresh splendour. But take the 'less is more' philosophy a step further and add in super clean white cotton knee-length shorts, the blank canvas of a grey marl sweatshirt and an 'I'm not really trying' black bucket hat? That's some next-level low-key. All that's left is to set off the basic base with a rich blast of Swedish yellow from backpack bosses Fjällräven. Simple, sartorial and Scandrogynous.
