A large part of the reason we try to look good is to impress the fairer sex. So it couldn’t hurt every once in a while to get a woman’s perspective on the clothing and accessories she’d prefer. We turned to our friends at Style Girlfriend to do just that. Here are the new pieces Brittany Hammonds, the site’s online editor, is liking right now.

For me, a long sleeved polo is always an interesting wardrobe choice. It grabs more attention than a crew neck sweater, but it’s just as easy to wear. Pair it with your suit and dress shoes to stay warm at work or throw it over light wash jeans with minimal sneakers for a laid-back look.$138
All complex olfactory experiences aside (Cedar, Sandalwood, and nutmeg, oh my), this is a scent that will leave a subtle yet lasting impression. Spritz it on to give off a “I built this fire to cook you an elaborate outdoor meal” vibe without, you know, actually chopping any wood.$103
Pro tip: Get you a blanket that can do both. This striped Woolrich blanket is the love child of ultra-warm fabric and bold home decor. Leave it strewn across your couch or folded in half atop your bed for a pop of color (and cozy invitation).$95
Corduroy is about as ubiquitous to autumn as pumpkin spiced lattes. And unlike PSLs, corduroy pants are anything but basic. The rich texture – soft to the touch and often unexpected – welcomes extra attention from the ladies, and who wouldn’t want that? Pair this plush pant with loafers and a button down for a unique twist on office style.$128
“Love it” is an understatement. The king of effortlessly cool casual wear, Michael Bastian, is focusing on the suave side of sportswear with his latest Gap x GQ collaboration. I’m all about his subtle twist on a go-to grey tee (and very highly encourage rolling those sleeves a few times too).$35
This retro revival from Vans has me missing my high school boyfriend, and I’m not mad about it – especially since these classic sneakers can make themselves comfortable in nearly any guy’s wardrobe. Style them with cuffed jeans or cropped trousers for a trendier take or keep it classic with slim khaki chinos and a white tee.$75
