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.

Barbour Chelsea Sportsquilt Jacket
Like fall and football, warm layers and cool temperatures, Bill Murray and… everything, some things in life are just plain better when joined together. Case and point: A quilted jacket and any outfit this season. The sophisticated structure and sporty, laid-back appeal will take even the most casual look to the next level.$155
J.Crew Men's Camp Socks
I thrice camped in the perilous Orlando, Florida, flats prior to moving to The City (pitching tents, roasting s’mores, the works). Naturally, that fostered my nostalgic commitment to camp socks in all their cozy glory. Thicker than your usual dress socks, these pair best with sturdy shoes like boots or chunky brogues—vintage vibes encouraged.$17
Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit
This one’s for you, Movember. If you’re looking to grow your ‘mo this month, a little extra care will go a long way. The cleanser in this kit will hydrate and condition your beard (meaning: less itching), while the styling product will tame any unruly hairs.$25
JackThreads Tieman Topcoat
It’s officially time to take out your topcoat—also known as any menswear icon’s favorite cold weather layer (see: James Dean, David Beckham). I love the classic double-breasted style, especially at a budget-friendly price. Throw this over your staple suit or wear it with light denim and Chelsea boots for an edgier take.$149
Frank+Oak Double Face Slub Shirt
Here’s a hot tip for making a traditional piece more interesting: Play with texture. This slub cotton shirt’s uneven weave makes it a bit more rugged, without sacrificing soft comfort. Try styling this bad boy with an “invisible tie” by buttoning it all the way up for a look that’s polished yet effortless.$65
Spitfire Subspace Sunglasses
I may be slightly biased when it comes to these shades because I love and appreciate any brand that makes well-designed frames for under $100. Bright blue is an admittedly bold choice, but there’s something great to be said about a pop of color with an otherwise simple outfit.$45
