Borrowed From the Boys: Add a Masculine Twist to Fall

Big, comfy sweaters. Relaxed boyfriend jeans. We thought we had the guys’ easygoing style covered – until now. A little bit masculine and a touch feminine, getting in on the menswear trend starts with shoes this fall. Keep the rest of your outfit on the ladylike side (think lace, polka dots, and bows), then step into a pair of these toughened-up kicks for just the right contrast.

BLG-1622 Borrowed from the boys

With olive-green leather and a sturdy stacked heel, these shoes are far from the ones your grandpa used to wear. Slip into some skinnies and toss on a chunky knit sweater. Or rock them at the office with tights, a pencil skirt, and a fitted sweater.

Fashion icons like Alexa Chung have been rocking these lace-up flats for a while. But this pair takes the trend up a notch with an allover suede upper and a slightly elevated sole. Just throw on a pair of skinny ankle jeans and classic chambray, and go.


Ruffles add a girly twist to otherwise edgy combat boots. Pair these with black opaque tights and a miniskirt come cooler weather. Hello, ideal balance.

Our Borrowed from the Boys: Women’s Oxfords & More Boutique opens Sunday, July 28, at 11AM ET.
