I’m no stranger to shopping in the men’s department (or better yet, Cody’s closet ;)) It’s one of my shopping secrets, especially when it comes to sportswear. The two workout pieces I always snag from the boys? Jackets and sneakers.

I love the comfy, oversized fit of a jacket layered over a pair of workout leggings so a men’s jacket in a small is usually the perfect fit. Not only does it basically double your options for styles but it also increases your odds of finding something in your size. There are tons classic sportswear jackets that read unisex too so there’s no reason not to browse the men’s department next time you are on the hunt for that perfect layer to add to your workout look or for a casual weekend vibe. I love this colorblocked option and this blue and red one.

If you haven’t already ditched the idea of shopping solely in the women’s department for sneakers, now is the time! Go down a size and a half to two sizes from your normal size to find the right fit in the men’s section. Between the men’s and kids’ department (another great option if you are size 8.5 or under plus with lower price points), I’ve scored some great sneakers that I either couldn’t find in women’s styles or in my size. Seriously one of the best tricks that will change your shoe game forever! I love this one in black and white and this chic black pair 30% off here.

    Yes absolutely! I recently discovered my dream white (expensive) sneakers in big boy size were very affordable! Also those small men’s sizes are often marked down bc they aren’t in demand, I guess. You are always so shrewd when it comes to clothes options! Thanks!

    Dying, by the bye, over your perfect casual updo, again. Dream!

    I have your shoes in the orangey color and I love them! So comfy! Very ridiculously bright though. 😉

    I love how men’s jackets are oversized but I have actually never thought to shop for men’s shoes. I am going to have to find my size and give them a try! 🙂

    What size is the wind runner jacket you are wearing? I want the slightly oversized look without it looking massive.

    I went and bought the jacket and shoes after reading this! My boyfriend has the same jacket, so now we match. 🙂 And I love the shoes – so comfortable!
