Good news 鈥 that borrowed-from-the-boys look we love so much? Yeah, it鈥檚 sticking around, so get ready to raid your bf鈥檚, bff鈥檚 or even your brother鈥檚 closet. Oversized everything is super on-trend, so mixing in menswear staples is the perfect way to nail that 鈥渃ool girl鈥 look. Menswear styles adapted for a woman鈥檚 body are great, but why not go straight to the source? Freshen up your go-to casual look with a coveted varsity jacket or turn his button down into a dress (you can even steal one of his belts to cinch in the waist). The possibilities are endless, which means your wardrobe basically just doubled (you鈥檙e welcome). Keep on reading for the five must-have pieces you need to nab from his closet stat.


From leather-trimmed bombers to perfectly tailored blazers, his jackets are the perfect layering piece for everything from a flowing maxi skirt to slim-cut trousers.


Polished looks feel instantly edgy with this oversized outerwear, plus you鈥檒l have plenty of room to pile on the layers.

T-shirts are the building blocks of every wardrobe, and while you probably have plenty of your own, you鈥檒l definitely want to snag a couple of his too.


Rolling up the sleeves to create a loose cuff will help with super long sleeves and polished accessories like a pair of heeled mules, a sleek blazer or a statement necklace will keep you looking pulled together rather than sloppy.

Balance out the casualness of the tee with luxe feminine pieces like a leather mini, or play up the rocker vibe of a vintage t-shirt with relaxed-fit or destroyed denim and ankle booties.

Boyfriend jeans are high on our list of closet must-haves and the idea has been around for decades (Levi鈥檚 501鈥檚, anyone?). Sure, you鈥檒l find them made just for women in almost every store, but why not go back to their roots? That鈥檚 right 鈥 we鈥檙e talking real boyfriend jeans, as in ones taken straight out of his room. You鈥檒l get that same flattering relaxed fit, but 10x more authentic.


These work best if you and your guy are similar in size, but even if you鈥檙e not, you can always doctor them up with a stylish cincher to create a paper-bag inspired waistline (a trend that was all over the Resort 2015 runway).


The trick to pulling them off? Balance out the relaxed fit with sharp pieces like pointed-toe pumps, a structured leather jacket or a loose-fitting top with a cinched-in waist. Did we mention his trousers and joggers are fair game too? Go ahead, take 鈥檈m.

His Sweaters

Most of us at some point have snagged a guy鈥檚 sweatshirt, but this time, go straight for the good stuff: his sweaters. We especially love them worn over sophisticated, ultra-feminine bottoms like a hip-hugging pencil or flouncy midi skirt.


Oversized sweaters are everywhere, but if you鈥檙e short on cash or end up spending the night at his place and need to switch up your outfit, grab one of these and go.

His Button-Downs

Whether you go for classic white or a more rugged denim option, if you take nothing else from his closet, you need the button-down shirt.


This is one of the most versatile pieces in his wardrobe (for you, anyway), and it looks just as good tucked into a pair of (his) boyfriend jeans as it does worn as a dress over leather leggings. We鈥檝e got two words for you: instant chic.
