I’m pretty much a jeans and t-shirt gal as it is. I am basically living in these Gap jeans at the moment. But sometimes I get bored with all the t-shirts you find in the women’s department. They can be really feminine. And right now there are so many options with sayings that I don’t want plastered on my chest. Plus I don’t love the clingy fit. Which is why I love to buy from the men’s department.
Don’t skip the men’s department!

Last spring when I did a little project with Old Navy I picked up this jacket (similar here) and a t-shirt from the men’s department and I LOVED how they worked in to my wardrobe. Men’s outerwear is my favorite. It’s a little bit more roomy than women’s versions (I like boxy, what can I say). They can also be a little more casual and have a cool vibe than some of the fussy coats you find in the women’s section.Seriously, I have 3 pairs of these jeans and wear them almost every day. They’re stretchy and even though they say mid-rise, they are more like a high waist which makes them PERFECT for moms who want to be comfortable! When I go out, I’ll throw on a cute blouse, but most often I’m in a t-shirt. I found this one at the Gap (when I was buying more pairs of those jeans!) and instantly loved the graphic and cool feel of the shirt.
They key to buying men’s items is to make sure that it is oversized without being huge. If you buy it too big, it can look sloppy. I usually go for a medium, which provides a nice fit without being clingy (which means it let’s the love handles breathe a little…) For outerwear, the arm length can be really long so watch out for that!
I chose these cool t-shirts for men from Old Navy, Gap and Target only. Not only are these three shops affordable, they often have sales and have great shopping both online and in store! Which means, there are millions of other styles out there for you, you just have to look in the men’s department!
