They say the grass is always greener on the other side… or in this case, the clothes are cooler in the other (men's) section. Is it just me or do you also think about buying a couple dozen items from the men’s section, especially when you’re shopping for either your boyfriend or your dad? I always came back empty-handed though. And then I had an epiphany - no one has actually ever said that girls can’t shop from the men’s section. There’s no reason for me to stick to the women’s section. Of course, I love dresses and I love the women’s section… but I love floral Cuban shirts and guys’ Bermuda shorts just as much and they don’t have those in my section. So the last time I went to Zara, I bought myself a rad tropical shirt from the guys' section, which looks hella fine with my linen pants.
And the moral of the story is… buy whatever you want to buy from wherever you want to buy it from! With androgyny and utility fashion being kind of a biggie today, there has never been a better time to start shopping in the men’s section, ladies. And to start you off, here are 7 online buys that made me go ‘oh, man!’. Enjoy!
I jump, you jump, we all jump for this jumpsuit. Style this chic Cuban collar baggy number with pumps, cool hoops, and a layered gold neckpiece.
