9 Pieces of clothing women want to steal from men and the one surprising item we don’t

Originally written by Jaclyn Genovese for notable.ca

Having a significant other makes for a lot of sharing. From sharing the car, to sharing your dinner and even being forced to share your feelings, but one thing men don’t expect to share when coming into a relationship is their wardrobe. Wearing our man’s clothing makes us feel cozy, dainty and cool. Our favorite thing about wearing your digs? They smell like you. I guess it’s also our own little way to mark our territory. Those sweatpants you were planning to wear before bed, the blazer that was draped on your chair and that stinky tee in your laundry hamper, woosh, it’s gone and you probably didn’t even notice. Here are the pieces that your lady is probably making her way out your door with right now and one surprising item you be will sad to hear is safe and sound from her thievish ways


  1. Socks

The beginning stages of clothing thievery begin at items you may not even notice. They may look ridiculous on us, with the heel indents coming up to our calves, but there is something so cozy and comforting about wearing our man’s socks.

  1. Hats

You’ve all experienced it at one time or another. You’re at the bar and a girl you may not even know just grabs your hat off of your head and runs for the hills. Hats are another magnetizing item we can’t help but swipe. Once a woman decides she wants to be your girlfriend, your hat collection will be as tempting as that tub of cookie dough ice cream that is sitting in your freezer. She is not only wearing your stolen hat collection around her house, but there is also a compilation of boyfriend hat selfies sitting on her iPhone. To post, or not to post, that is the question…

  1. Boyfriend Jeans… literally

I mean, what more can we say. Boyfriend jeans are the hottest trend right now so how can we not give in to their seduction?


4. Watches

There’s something about wearing your man’s chunky watch that makes us feel charmingly feminine. Don’t fret, she most likely will not wear it outside of the house, but she will definitely flaunt it like it’s hers.


5. T-Shirts

None are safe from a woman’s grasp, but especially not the stinky ones. Nothing beats that smell of your man’s cologne, deodorant and his own manly scent.

Tip: Next time your lady stays over, just have her favorite t-shirt waiting for her on your bed. We couldn’t get comfortable before, but now we can properly snuggle next to you on the couch and watch a movie.


6. Hoodies

This love affair with men’s hoodies is universal. Every woman has a collection of men’s hoodies and we promise to get rid of the old ones, as long as we are sufficiently restocked with yours. There is nothing a woman likes more than a comfortable sweater, and nothing is more comfortable than our man’s oversized ones. The University Hoodie with the grass stains and holes in it? We would wear that thing to work if we could. A good hoodie is the ultimate find, no grubby sweatshirt is safe around our freshly manicured hands.

7. Your Lightweight Jacket

We’ll be back in a minute we’re just going to run to the store to grab something (slips on jacket).

8. Suit Jacket

This is the one item that is actually offered to us by our man and is the one item that we don’t want to keep. The shoulder pads don’t make us look dainty, we just feel beastly and boxy. No, no, this doesn’t mean we won’t take you up on your offer to wear it, we’re still cold, but once this draft goes away and we heat up on the dance floor, you can have right it back.

9. Sweatpants

Sunday afternoons, lounging around the house. We may have to keep hiking them up and the bottoms of them are dusting up your floor, but isn’t that cute?

10. The one item we don’t want to wear or even borrow? Your Dress Shirt.


And of course it’s the one item that a man actually wants to see his woman in. Everyman fantasizes about waking up to his girl making breakfast in nothing but last nights dress shirt, but that starch collar and annoying cuffs don’t exactly scream relaxation. Besides, we don’t want to get your crisp white shirt dirty, what would you wear to work?

14 Ways to Wear Your Knits

also written by Jaclyn Genovese for notable.ca

Knits this season seem to be as pretty as they are vital and though cable knit sweaters are one of the most timeless pieces you can wear, they can get tiresome after a while. Be prepared to snuggle up this season with these fun ways to wear your beloved winter knitwear.


1. A feminine hue makes up for a relaxed fit.


2. We all know that destroyed denim was huge this spring, but shredding our knits delights us equally during these chillier months.


3. Layer on loads of your favorite winter jacket, knit and  skirt.


4. Pair with this season’s hottest boot, the Chelsea boot.


5. An oversized knit can act as a cozy dress.


6. If your knit leaves you feeling boxy, add a belt around your waist to give a little shape.


7. Snuggle up in a turtle neck version.


8. Tone on tone of this season’s favorite color, tan, looks luxurious.


9. For a glamorous look that is appropriate for the Holidays, pair with a glitzy skirt.


10. Pleated pants add sophistication to a wild shade.


11. Step up and soften up your Office look with a comfy knit.


12. Flatter your curves in a cropped sweater with a streamlined skirt.


13. Layering a blouse under your sweater gives off a polished look.
