Begin Simply by April

Begin Simply is a space where I slowly curate my ideal wardrobe while giving a running commentary of the process. My ideal wardrobe is definitely one of neutral hues, simple cuts and quality material. Besides writing about my wardrobe I also intend to include cafe scenes (lots of coffee!) and still life photography. By the way, I watch too much AFL (yes, I am from Australia). On a more serious note, I am still not sure whether to continue on this platform (thinking of merging content from here to my Instagram), but for the time being I will be posting on both platforms - April

Borrowing from him - the knitwear






The old saying, 'If you can't beat them, join them' is so true when it comes to buying some of the essential pieces for your wardrobe from the men's section. From tees that sit just above the hip and have no tendencies of clinging to your chest and trunk to sweaters that a cut simply with quality material it is easier just to head up to the men's section instead of looking around the more 'trendy' basics. Even pieces in the women's section that are labelled with 'boyfriend...' are not really proportioned right (except a pair of boyfriend jeans, I think most have it right, there!), so why not actually buy from the men's section?

So, under the heading 'Borrowing from him' I will be posting how a piece bought from the men's section can easily integrate into any wardrobe.

  1. I like to shop the men's section too. I have tees, shirts, belts, and even the best fitting pair of jeans I own are from the men's side.

    1. I normally get tees and knitwear from the men's section. They have some classic belts but they are all too big so I would need to punch more holes, but I haven't shopped for bottoms. That is amazing how you found such good fitting jeans!

  2. A sweater can be so versatile! I love all the ways you've styled it and it's been fun to see them over the last couple of months on you too!
