Shopping post: O.B.D. edition

Getting the O.B.D. is pretty easy -- ideally your dad or boyfriend or brother should have some of these oversize button-downs lying around the house, ready for your fashion-twitchy hands to steal and style.

Sometimes, though, our guys' tastes don't exactly jive with ours. The shirts may be too large, rendered in the worst of artificial fibers, in hideous prints or awful colors. Or maybe you live in a house with fashionable men who've gone the Thom Browne route with tightly tailored clothes (good for them, bad for you). So I did a quick search through Zalora Philippines and rustled up these babies:

Want to go oversized but not trapeze-y? This polo's for you. The batwing sleeves give the volume, but the tapered hip ensures that you're not billowing out.  Style this as Leandra does with slim, sleek trousers, killer heels and loads of rich-bitch accessories. It's just the kind of contrast that'll take this casual piece to chicness.

 Crissa Woven top (P749.75)
I love the tomboy appeal of this polo -- it's very 1950s slumming debutante! It's also light enough to layer over a tank top, or, worn on its own, will fall very nicely. This works with cropped capris (for the full '50s effect) or, for some edge, folded-over-the-ankles faded boyfriend jeans and sky-high stilettos.

Space Sale Kirby 3/4 Top (20% off at P796.00) 
For ladies who don't want to go full-masculine with their O.B.D.s, a floral chiffon number works best. Worn over a pencil skirt or pants in a contrasting color, these are easy to style and easy to wear.
I like the relaxed cut and androgyny of this shirt; it makes it perfectly open to orientation. Contrast this by tucking it into a flowy chiffon mullet skirt or rock it with denim cut-offs and neon wedges.

Like any of these? Take an additional 5% off when you use the code KatAtienza0 upon check out. Happy shopping!
