Ask Shopbop: Borrowed from the Boys


Clockwise, from top left: Splendid top, Splendid oxfords, MISTER. duvall bow tie, Eddie Borgo and Miansai bracelets.

Menswear is a fantastic resource for the fashion-inclined female, and accessories are a great gateway. Men's bags are durable, classic, and usually free of gaudy hardware. I carried one for years! And men's jewelry has that perfectly oversized quality that so many women's jewelry designers seek to emulate. In terms of apparel, sweater sleeves can be really long and bulky, but if you're not afraid to get creative or riff on the ’90s, knits can steal the show. Lastly, look to men's collections for fabulous shirting. I look for oxfords or great plaid flannels from Gant Rugger.

Now, when it comes to tailored items and denim, I say stick to menswear-inspired items found on your favorite women's site, (like Shopbop, naturally). The fit will be superior—cut generously in the right places—and ensuring a chic look.
