I do all of the clothing shopping for my husband, and it really is a double-edged sword. The plus side? Man, do I ever love shopping his closet. The downside? Because I love menswear-inspired pieces, we often find ourselves twinning, which is super cute on the 70+ set, but pretty cringeworthy on us. BUT, I think the upsides far outweigh the downsides, so I’ll continue to flex my fashion authority over him, and he’ll continue to look as handsome as ever (win-win!).
Below are my favourite unisex fashion pieces:
Gold RayBan Aviators: I borrow his pair so often I should really just buy my own, but because they go with everything, that would ensure us twinning 100% of the time. I’ll stick to borrowing!
Leather Weekender: The perfect travel bag. We can often get away with one wheelie carry-on and this bad boy for weekend trips. Love this bag!
Denim Jacket: My guy doesn’t own a denim jacket (bona-fide leather lover), but if he did, I would wear this oversized jacket with everything.
Bow Tie: How cute is this pug bow tie? Love a little bow with a femme collared shirt.
Straw Fedora: Is it just me, or do men in general take much better care of their hats? My straw hats last approximately one season before accidentally crush them in a beach bag, or an overstuffed suitcase. Oops. Good thing I have his for an emergency back-up!
Black Leather Watch: A timeless black leather strap watch is perfect for him or you. Christmas gift?!
Fisherman’s Knit: Is there anything better than a chunky knit on a freezing cold winter day? My favourite classic sweater.
Breton Shirt: A baggy breton paired with slouchy trousers, cinched with a brown leather belt. Chic. Chic. Chic.
