Zara Wants You To Wear Men's Clothes

Every Monday we do our weekly pilgrimage to Zara's website to check out their new arrivals. Today we were excited to see a pair of wide leg yellow corduroy trousers (we've been on the lookout for a pair since last March when a perfect pink pair went down the runway at Celine's Fall show), but we were super surprised to find out they were actually men's pants. Of course! How did it not occur to us before to check out the men's department?
The corduroy pants weren't the only menswear item that crossed over to the women's section of the site, there were also coats and sweaters. Once we saw how amazing all the menswear pieces they put together looked, we decided to just go straight to the source and see what cool menswear pieces we could claim as our own.
And if you're thinking those pieces only work on a model because she's tall! It'll look crazy on me, we have two words for you: Olsen Twins. We dissected their oversized silhouettes and layering style a couple weeks ago for you, so you might want to keep it open in another tab while you look through these picks. We were already stoked about the oversized trend but now we have so many more options at our fingertips and it's almost too good! Click ahead for the best menswear you need this season.

The trousers that started it all — we can see ourselves wearing them with a slim fit turtleneck and some pointy shoes for the ultimate casual-but-luxe look.

We always like our coats to fit a lil' slouchy so we can layer thick sweaters underneath when the weather gets really cold. With a menswear coat, the slouch is basically built-in, so there's no way to do it wrong.

We've been into men's button down shirts for a while, and while they can be tricky, the quarter-tuck is a styling move that never disappoints. It brings just enough definition to your silhouette so you don't get lost underneath a bunch of fabric (unless that's the look you're going for, of course!).

When it comes to oversized knits though, it's often a great idea to pair them with something super fitted for maximum contrast. We want this sweater in all the colors.

We love this delicate, colorful stripe — and we love it even more layered over a dark turtleneck.

We are always looking for ways to add more velvet into our lives and we have a feeling these sky blue trousers are the answer to at least 50% of our velvet-related prayers.

We thought we were over the oversized bomber trend until we came across this jewel-toned version (which Zara is calling Duck Green).

Ok so it's obvious we are really into yellow these days. Can you blame us when this sweater's basically a wearable ray of sunshine?

We hope this era of slouchy pants never ends.

We can't get through winter without an oversized puffy jacket and this one might just do the trick.
