This edition of ‘Borrowed From the Boys’ is about my latest obsession – the menswear sweater.

I’ve been looking for great oversized sweaters to pair with everything from denim, leggings to mini skirts and then I realized — what if I shop the men’s section?

I love the menswear inspired look so I decided to get a few sweaters from American Eagle Outfitters menswear collection in size small and am obsessed. Whether you’re looking for the perfect knit crew neck or a chunky turtleneck — they have it all!


For this look I decided to pair my oversized navy turtleneck sweater with a patterned mini-skirt. When the top is much looser it’s important to balance the proportions — a mini skirt with tights is a perfect mix.

This patterned velvet skirt nods to this texture trend that’s been everywhere this season and adds a special touch to a basic sweater. I added my suede over-the-knee boots and one of my favorite hats from Madewell to complete my look.
