Happy Saturday lovelies! Who’s enjoying pride month? I know I am! I love all of the expression that comes with pride month, especially the fashion we see!
So, this week I did a bit of shopping and it occurred to me that I rarely see people looking for clothes in every section of the store, just because they’re labelled either for ‘men’ or ‘women’. But those labels never really seemed to both me, until now.
You see, I will shop in every part of a clothes shop. Not because I love to shop (and you know I do) but because you’d be surprised at some of the amazing clothes and shoes people are missing out on just because they’ve been labelled for the other gender.
I’d say about a quarter of my wardrobe is technically for ‘men’, and I have a few pieces which are for ‘kids’ or ‘teens’ (because I’m petite, I can get away with some kids clothes). Which is why I decided I’d show you some of my pieces that were made for ‘men’!
Here’s a red tee that I picked up at Peacocks, to be honest, I love them for their men’s clothes more than their women’s! This top is an xl too, which means I can wear it three ways!
I love this tee so so much, and it’s another one from Peacocks! I always feel great in this top, and it’s perfect paired with jeans and trainers for a day look or heels for a night look!
If you’re looking for cheap clothes that are a good quality, then Tk Maxx is the place to go. Pairing this top with my thrifted Gucci bag (read more about my thrifting here!) and some slip on trainers is such a cute outfit you can wear for days out and about because it’s so comfy and cool.
I wear this jumper probably at least once a week. I picked this up at Tesco (f&f) in a size xxl because it was there was only one left and I just can’t resist a baggy jumper! I french tuck this into jeans or I wear it with leggings and boots. You can’t go wrong with either of those ideas!
Here’s another top from Tk Maxx and it was a bargain at £4.99! This might be my favourite top out of all my men’s tops. And I think this would look great on anyone!
And last but not least for this little collection is my super oversized tartan shirt from f&f which I think is a size xl. This one is great used as a cardigan with a vest top and jeans or as an oversized shirt tied up with jeans. This one is great for all seasons too!
And those are a few of my clothes that were supposed to be for men, that look damn good on everyone.
I always get a few weird looks when I’m looking for clothes in the ‘men’s’ section, but who cares?! At the end of the day, clothes are just fabric, why does that need to be gendered and labelled? It doesn’t. I wish clothes shops would just have one one label or sign: ‘Clothes for people’ in all sizes, shapes and colours. People shouldn’t feel restricted with what they’re wearing just because it’s ‘supposed’ to be for the other gender.
Fashion is an expression, just like makeup, and we should all feel able to wear and buy whatever we want to wear.
Have a great weekend everyone! And wear whatever you want to wear, no matter how weird it is, because
weird is wonderful!!

If you hadn’t of told me, I would of had no idea these clothes were from the “men’s” section. I love how you’ve styled each piece but especially the red top, black New York top and the butterfly / moth top (presume moth as it’s “men’s”). Seriously can I employ you as my own personal stylist, haha!
I find it funny that your judged for shopping in the men’s or kid’s sections. I’ve had it happen to me when looking at kid’s clothes – they ask who I’m shopping for. It’s silly. Why can’t we buy the clothes if we like them? My sister-in-law frequently shops in the men’s section too; and, you know what, I’m definitely going to try it. They often have better graphic tops!

Thank you so much! I know what you mean, I also get kids shoes too! So much cheaper and they’re slightly bigger so I can get a 5 1/2 there! Xx
