We love our ‘boyfriend jeans’ and our oversized sweaters as much as the next person, but sometimes you need to actually shop in the men’s sections of your favourite stores to find things that satisfy your desire for androgynous fashion. With jeans, we get it; men’s jeans aren’t designed with women’s hips in mind so for the ultimate boyfriend jeans you’re still best off shopping within the women’s collections. But as far as hoodies, sweaters, accessories, t-shirts and even some fitted shirts go, there’s nothing stopping you. For those days when the last thing you want to do is step into a pencil skirt and a pair of heels and those of you who, like us, would much rather cosy up in a fleece-lined sweater as we sit down to our desks, why not cross the boundaries that really don’t need to be there at all?

From chic bomber jackets to shirts that you’ll want to wear with a little extra room, here we round up 10 hidden gems, sitting pretty in the men’s departments, that would make for worthy contenders in any wardrobe.

For those who like their accessories big, pay particular attention to the Daniel Wellington watch. Yes, there women’s versions available, but they’re designed with a much smaller face. And if it’s trendy, thick-rimmed glasses you’re after? The men’s section of Specsavers is where we find the best pairs.

Happy shopping!
