Menswear Pieces You Should Co-Opt Now

I’ve been deriving inspiration from men for as long as I can remember – I grew up with three brothers and despite my girly tendencies, their boyish ways wore off on me. In high school I took my brother’s jeans, wore them to death, and have since convinced myself that I'm responsible for kick-starting the boyfriend jean trend of the early '00s.
So, it’s no surprise that I find endless inspiration from the runways of men’s fashion week and this season’s Spring/Summer '14 show was no exception. Some of my favorite menswear designers showed gorgeous prints, interesting silhouettes, and innovative layering that I could easily see myself wearing. Click to see my seven favorite men’s runways trends and how best to make them wearable for you.
