Best Men’s Sections for Some Androgynous Shopping

by Lauren Heskin
09th Jul 2015

There can be no denying that women love to wear men’s clothing, so much so that wearing your boyfriend’s clothing no longer necessitates you have a boyfriend. Plus it’s tricky to fit a female set of hips into your actual boyfriend’s jeans. But no matter how many oversized shirts and cosy cable knits we buy in the women’s section, nothing quite compares to your brother’s super soft t-shirt or that huge sweater you wear as a dress that you think might belong to your boyfriend’s dad.

Men’s clothes tends to be cheaper and often better?quality because they’re less likely to compromise comfort for fashion. And did we mention that you won’t bump into another woman wearing the same thing?

Here are some of the best androgynous shopping looks on the high street right now. It’s also a solid excuse to check out the high-street male model scene.
