Ladies, have you ever been shopping at Crossroads and something from the men’s section totally catches your eye?! Well, this scenario regularly happens to me when I’m out shopping and truth being told; I’ve actually scored some of my most amazing #CrossroadsFinds by strolling into the men’s section! Maybe it’s the fits or the simplicity of the silhouettes, but some styles are simply better when they are borrowed from the boys! Here’s a list of five styles that I typically will venture into the men’s section to find!
Real Boyfriend Jeans
You can always shop for boyfriend jeans in the women’s section, but go ahead and give this style a run for its money by opting for a pair of real boyfriend jeans! Go ahead and cuff the hem if they are a bit too long in the in-seam and embrace the roominess because looser jeans are right on trend!
A Classic T-Shirt
The men’s section at Crossroads has quite a few racks featuring shirts of all styles and colors, so I like to skim through them for tees with bold graphics or even basics that are a bit worn in. Slightly oversized and super comfortable, men’s tees are great for loosely tucking into a pair of high-rise jeans or for tying up in a knot.
One of my latest and greatest finds from Crossroads is a men’s All Saints denim jacket! I have plenty of women’s denim jackets already, but I definitely like the more relaxed vibe that this oversized denim jacket adds to my outfits. Fun Fact: My boyfriend actually takes this #CrossroadsFind out of my closet regularly so that he can wear it for himself!
Men’s blazers are a lot roomier and boxier in style, given the tailoring. Luckily for us ladies, menswear-inspired blazers are right on trend, so why not hunt for the real deal! I’m usually seeking blazers with a classic plaid or a window-pane pattern, but solid colored styles are a great find as well! So if you’re not seeing the style you’ve been manifesting in the women’s section, take a stroll to the other side of the store!
Men’s button-downs make fantastic layering pieces over a simple top, plus they are super easy to tie up in the front from classic pinstripes to cozy plaids, men’s button downs are a great style.
