Borrowing From Boys

Loose cut jeans, plaid button downs, blazers, cardigans, dress shirts, bulky watches and oxfords are just a few of the treasures that could be lurking in your man's closet.  When sneaking around make sure to steer clear of the oversized t shirts and baggy sweats, as comfy as they may be, these pieces are best reserved for lazy days spent inside. Adding a masculine edge to your look is easy, but make sure not to go overboard, the idea isn't to blend in with the boys but to stand out by looking cute, casual and confident.  Mix masculine and feminine pieces together to achieve a proportionate look, pair relaxed cut jeans with structured tops and menswear dress shirts with curve hugging pants and skirts.  Now get on the hunt and raid the closets of your boyfriend, brother, dad, and best guy friends in search of these items.  Come up empty handed?  No problem, you're in luck.  I have scoured the web looking for the perfect boy pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe.
