I recently put up a blog post about shopping the men’s section, and I stand by what I said. Shopping is not limited to one section of the store. That is why this week’s look was taken from the rag & bone spring menswear 2015 resort collection. Sometimes, you’re going for a really androgynous look, but you can’t find anything in the women’s section to produce the effect you want. Step out of your zone and look for it in the men’s!
I realized this when I was trying to find a long button-up shirt. I tried every boyfriend and long line shirt the female section had to offer to no avail. I finally strolled into the guy’s section and tried on a shirt. The rest is history. From there, it grew to sweaters and sweatshirts. Who knows what’s next? I feel a little guilty for shortening their ration, but guy’s clothes can be really comfy.
I especially love the rag & bone collection because it embodies something that is essential to my personal style—comfort. While I am constantly trying to find the balance between being comfortable and stepping out of my comfort zone, some days I want to dress all the way down. And there’s no better way to do that than wearing clean basics. In the summer, for me, that’s a white top, a pair of black short and sandals. As we think about starting school this fall, we can’t forget the importance of comfort.
