Four Things I am Buying in Men's Section
There is something appealing about shopping in men's section. The quality there is usually better, many of the silhouettes look great on females and the prices are often considerably lower. I am not advocating for shopping for the entire head-to-toe look in men's section; however, some menswear pieces are very much worth attention (and borrowing from the boys just feels cool :)
If you're after a fashionable oversized feel - look no further than in men's section. You can find a plain white t-shirt, which will look great tucked into a pair of wide-leg jeans, a mini skirt or worn under a slip dress. Men's t-shirts tend to have higher neckline, so if that makes you feel uncomfortable opt for a V-neck cut.
I absolutely shopping for the outerwear in men's department (or borrowing pieces my partner already owns). This is especially relevant when it comes to coats. As men's clothes are naturally larger and broader, you can easily create an oversized look without having to spend double the price for a similar coat in women's section.

Jumpers and Sweaters
Men's jumpers are usually very comfortable, soft and cosy. Plus, they look extremely flattering on females. Pair it with a midi or a mini skirt, or with a pair of skinny Levi's and you've got a killer outfit.

Hats, belts, gloves...for some reason, boys just seem to get better ones. They are also the easiest to incorporate into daily outfits - so if you're not a hundred percent sure where to start go for a men's hat or a watch - guys hats are usually simple and edgy and the watches tend to have larger faces and are easier to read.
