Here's How to Borrow from the Boys — the Right Way

FabSugarSource: Here's How to Borrow From the Boys - the Right Way

There's nothing quite as satisfying as pulling on a boyfriend sweater (whether it's actually your boyfriend's or an oversize treasure you've somehow inherited over the course of your lifetime) on a cold autumnal morning. As the temperature dips, we're looking for more comfy and cozy pieces to base our looks around. Instead of scouring the usual virtual racks, we headed over to the men's department and found some irresistible pieces we'd like to add to our Fall basics lineup: a cozy grandpa cardigan sweater, printed puffer vest, and camouflage tee. Just how do we plan on wearing these borrowed-from-the-boys pieces? It's all about adding an unexpected pop of masculinity to your regular feminine looks. So read on for a few helpful tips, then shop our editor-curated picks here!

  • As the temperature dips, you'll need a trusty puffer to keep you cozy. We love the idea of taking this men's tartan vest and belting it to give it a cute peplum shape. Other seasonal essentials, like cords and a great cable-knit sweater, finish off this Fall-ready look.
  • A striped tee can easily be worn year round. Pair this men's slightly oversize silhouette with a pencil skirt, fringed heels, and a smart briefcase for a sexy menswear inspired look.
  • Camouflage is a hot Fall trend. Try pairing this simple men's tee with a slick blazer, dark jeans, and a pair of killer, studded oxblood boots for a casual, yet polished, downtown look.
  • We love staying warm with a boyfriend sweater - so why not get one your man can actually wear? Give this men's collared shawl cardigan a feminine update by pairing it with a dark floral dress and seasonal, suede booties.
