Stolen a bunch of clothing from your boyfriend? Sometimes, the idea of wearing his big, masculine t-shirts can be way sexier than reality because they’re not actually fitted, don’t match with anything in your wardrobe and also you don’t want to be dating him anymore because you’re not compatible. In that case, here are a few easy DIY tips to take all those t-shirts you’ve pillaged and repurpose them into a new style, as well as a relationship with a different guy.
Make an off-the-shoulder dress while breaking up with him.
For a really cute DIY project, make an off-the-shoulder dress while breaking up with him. All you have to do is cut the neck and shoulders off his old J. Crew t-shirt, elasticate the edges to hold the dress up and then get your boyfriend a glass of water for him to drink while you deliver the bad news: You just don’t see this relationship going anywhere and you’d like to move on, preferably with a guy who’s figured out how to sort his laundry by color.
Cut the sleeves off his shirt and start dating casually.
An easy way to transform your man’s t-shirt, and his life, is to cut the sleeves off and start dating casually. Draw a V-neck with a felt pen and trim one side into a racerback shape to complete the look, then get back into the dating pool. You can wear your new tank top while you grab coffee with a series of same-looking tech guys all named Mitch who you matched with on Bumble and who would all technically make an acceptable new boyfriend. Voila!
Sew several of his t-shirts into a romper and try a different hairstyle.
To go for something a little riskier, sew several of his t-shirts into a romper and try a different hairstyle. Just cut two leg holes out of the material, then cut your hair off until it feels about right. This change in your appearance will give you the confidence to meet new men, and also you’ll have a romper. Whoa!
Just wear his shirt like normal but start a new life with someone else.
The easiest DIY project of all is to just wear his shirt like normal but start a new life with someone else. All this requires is absolutely nothing. Just put his shirt on, then move in with one of those tech guys named Mitch. It doesn’t really matter which one, since they’re all perfectly sufficient, and even if they aren’t you can repurpose some of their fancy button downs into a cool look in a few months when you break up with them.
And there you have it! Try these simple tips to repurpose your BF’s old t-shirts into something new and beautiful: Another relationship with someone else.
