As the weather begins to shift from the heat of Summer into the freshness of Fall this Labor Day, our minds inevitably start to consider a wardrobe update. Your boyfriend, husband, brother or best friend's wardrobe is the perfect place to find transitional treats that you can wear without spending a dime.
You could even make same of these men's items a permanent part of your own wardrobe for next to nothing by visiting your local vintage store. The more worn in the pieces are the better.
An oversized jacket paired with your favorite summer dress works for day or night look paired with sneakers or heels. If you feel like you're drowning in the jacket throw a belt around the waist.
A men's business shirt can double as a skirt. Wear it low on the hips or high-waisted and use the arms as a built in belt.
A pair of worn in men's jeans are comfortable, versatile and great with heels and a t-shirt (or cropped button down). You can go all-in with the men's wardrobe raid and complete the look with a parka (the brighter the better) and some men's underwear.
Whether you're looking to extend the life of your strapless dress beyond summer or simply prefer a layered look, a men's t-shirt under a strapless dress is a good styling trick to try.
