If you're anything like us, you can probably look into a full-to-the-brim closet and still decide that you have nothing to wear. The next time this happens to you, take it as sign that you should start invading the closets of the men in your life—or even browsing the men's section the next time you go shopping! Whether it's a retro rock t-shirt, a comfy flannel or a chunky sweater, you just might find something to wear that will be a nice change of pace from your regular wardrobe!
1. Grey Textured Sweatshirt - Topman ($60)
This grunge-inspired top offers a little bit of edge to what would otherwise be a basic sweatshirt. Since it'll be loose-fitting, pair it with your favorite skinny jeans and some trendy sneakers for a super-cozy yet stylish outfit.
2. Slub Sports 2 Stripe Socks - Need Supply ($37)
If you're tired of the dainty-looking, polka-dotted, floral socks that are invading your sock drawer, try a pair of long tube socks like this knit pair instead. The heathered texture and stripes make for a preppy look, so these would look great in a pair of Hunters or a mid-calf leather boot!
3. Mountain Parka - Uniqlo ($59.60)
No longer are cargo jackets just a staple outerwear item for men! The oversized fit is a nice change from the fitted jacket that you might normally reach for. Plus, you'll definitely stay dry and cozy thanks to the parka's durability.
4. Slim-fit Soft-Wash Button Down Shirt - Banana Republic ($59.50)
Between tucking it into a pencil skirt, half tucking it into jeans or wearing it over trousers, there's so much you can do with a men's white button down. The slim-fit of this Banana Republic top will still provide a loose fit since it's a men's shirt, but it won't be so big that you're swimming in it. If you're really looking to make an outfit with this top pop, pair it with a bold statement necklace.
5. Vampire Weekend Floral Tee - Urban Outfitters ($28)
For whatever reason, women's graphic tees sometimes just aren't as cool as the ones made for men—so unfair. That's why we're giving you complete permission to snag any men's graphic tee that catches your eye. Tees like this one (repping Vampire Weekend!) are slouchy, without being too boxy. They're easy to play up with a cute skirt, or dress down with a pair of leggings.
6. Ebbet's Field Flannels Homstead Gray Ball Cap - J.Crew ($49.50)
J.Crew's line of vintage-inspired baseball caps is the perfect way to embrace a sporty look. The faded color of this cap makes it easy to pair with a simple outfit. Consider it your new go-to hat for bad hair days!
