The boyfriend jacket may has been designed with inspiration from a man in her life, but today’s woman knows it is styled just for her. Designed to appear as though she raided her boyfriend’s closet and went out, this look is far too chic to leave any doubt that the execution is totally feminine.

Today’s boyfriend jackets are made from a wide variety of materials and thus achieve a range of style looks, from the relaxed casual wear of denim to the formally classic appeal of wool. Other materials used include corduroy, canvas, enzyme-washed super soft fabrics, silk, polyester and spandex. The jackets may be lined or unlined and generally close with from one to two buttons. Sleeves are either cuffed or straight with buttons on them in lieu of cuffs. The sleeve length ranges from elbow to three-quarter-length. There is usually one back vent. Pockets may be real and useful or faux pockets added simply for stylish appearance. Some have notched collars and others have shawl collars.

To officially be considered a true boyfriend jacket this piece of apparel needs to be a little oversized and maybe even look a little slouchy, again to give the appearance of grabbing it from the closet to put on and wear. The jacket therefore has a relaxed fit but not a sloppy one. Lightly structured and tailored, when worn these jackets are appealingly feminine but very chic. It looks like the man’s type of structured, close-fitted jacket but instead is a comfortable and laid back article of clothing for a woman.

Who was that guy that would go to the park with a dog inside his jacket and it looked like he had a dog head?

I saw it somewhere on TV or the internet. He like traveled in a golf cart around the park with a dog as his head. He also said he did it regularly.
