H&M is one of my favorite brands for obvious reasons – they carry trendy, well-made clothes at affordable prices. I’ve always been a fan of their women’s collections, but recently I have been venturing into the men’s department as well. With the oversized trend going on, I love the men’s cotton shirts for a looser, baggier fit. I literally took this shirt off my husband’s back (yes, I encourage you to go shopping in your man’s closet) and wore this with my favorite H&M cut off shorts. I bought these shorts last year, but linked some of my current favorites below. Together the shirt and shorts combined are less than $50!
Not only did I mix menswear and womenswear for this look, I also mixed price points using investment accessories to dress up this outfit. I am a true believer that fashion does not have to be expensive to look good, but investing in certain items that are classic and that you will wear forever are worth it. To lengthen my legs I went with my classic nude pumps – it’s amazing what a great pair of heels can do for an outfit. Paired with my classic Chanel bag (bandana added for a cool girl look), I took Basic + Classic = Summertime Chic.

You look absolutely amazing, dear! Those legs though. Say what? Love the way you mixed and matched. Hot outfit. Great look. Well done.
Thank you Jennifer, you are so complimentary. The extra 5″ from the heels definitely help my legs. =)
What you’ve pieced together here is perfection!! I’m not brave enough to wear my hubbys clothes outside of the house but you certainly show us that it’s possible and you did it so well! Love how you use nude pumps to lengthen your legs, now that, I’m all about 😉 xoxo!
Thank you Adelina! You totally could rock your hubbie’s clothes outside! I am actually excited to expand my closet just by going into his now and I’ve definitely been digging in there to see what other shirts I could “borrow.”
SUCH A BABE! LOVE THIS LOOK! XX, ERIN – http://WWW.STYLEBYTHEPEOPLE.COM
Thanks Erin, who knew that shopping in the men’s department would be successful! I’ve totally been missing out!
So Chic and graceful.
Thank you Maria I appreciate your feedback and it means a lot to me!
Your outfit is pure perfection! I love it!
Thank you Lora I appreciate it! I just love that I expanded my closet into my hubbie’s now too!
Omg, I wish I could look that good in my boyfriend’s shirt! It’s just too bad I’m an XXS and he’s like an XL lol!
Also love how you paired a bandana with your shorts. It’s all in the details 🙂 xo, sharon
You are too funny babe! I have to admit I was surprised that I fit into my man’s medium, but it works. I think I could’ve done the large too!
Wow you look amazing! Love how you mix your high and low pieces! So classy!
Thanks Candice! I love mixing all sorts of pieces together. Fashion doesn’t have to be expensive and I love that there are so many brands out there that are trendy and affordable!
