7 Items to Steal from the Men's Department


Do you ever sneak into your guy's closet to steal his clothes? I often find myself gravitating towards satchels, elbow patch sweaters and plaid scarves over trendy handbags and skirts. Particularly for this time of year, comfy classics like sweaters, button-up shirts, and pea-coats are simple and effortless, not to mention insulating! The menswear look seems to be a trend this year, however, it's been around for a very long time. Katherine Hepburn was famous for stealing from the men's department back in the 30′s and helped make trousers fashionable for women to wear. Mens clothing doesn't change a whole lot season to season while it seems women are expected to chase trends every quarter. I'd prefer to keep my closet classic, even if it means stealing a few pieces from the guys. Here's a look at my top picks for the season.

1. Plaid Scarf
This soft, lightweight scarf is made from brushed twill and is the perfect match for cute fall dresses and boots. If you love plaid but are afraid of going out head to toe in it, here's the perfect touch.
$29.50 at Lands' End Canvas

2. Dotted Blue Button-Up
This all-over dotted shirt would be super cute belted up with a blazer, jeans and heels! The tiny dots are on trend this season but certainly a classic that can stay in your closet year to year. $241.76 at Grandpa

3. Field Bag

This satchel, inspired by vintage military bags, is great for overnight trips. It's a classic fall bag for guys or girls and looks good paired with anything in a fall wardrobe from plaid skirts to worn in jeans. It's charm increases with age as there's nothing so chic as worn-in leather.
