Five pieces to borrow from the men's wardrobe

Whether you want to add a boyish touch to your wardrobe or simply renew it with timeless basics, borrowing pieces from the men's wardrobe is often a good idea. Proof is with five key pieces that you can wear without delay.

 

An oversize shirt

It goes without saying that the shirt is a timeless piece: it can be worn in any season, especially when borrowed from the men's wardrobe for a loose effect. A nod to the sailor's wardrobe, this Monaco Marine - merci la mer design unveils a striped detail on the collar. It will be best paired with sailor pants and a pair of white sneakers.

A minimalist worker's jacket

Inspired by workwear, this jacket from De Bonne Facture counts among the most classic pieces of men's wardrobe, while embodying the ideal mid-season piece. Pair it with straight pants and heeled ankle boots to face the Mediterranean breeze.

An oversize sailor's shirt

Because it is best worn a size up, the sailor's shirt can easily be borrowed directly from the men's wardrobe. This La Paz piece features wide stripes and can be combined with a pencil skirt or worn over a swimsuit when going on a sea trip.

A tailored blazer

 

More casual than the suit jacket and perfectly tailored, the men's blazer will inject a dose of elegance into a shirt or a t-shirt. Lightweight and structured, this linen model from De Bonne Facture can be worn a bit loose, and is the right piece of clothing to face the first autumn frost on the Côte d'Azur.

A large sweatshirt

Ideal to dress down an elegant skirt or pants, the sweatshirt is also the perfect piece to warm up after a swim in the sea... Choose it cut in a soft cotton, and preferably decorated with an anchor to underline your love for the Mediterranean Sea.
