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.

Surfside Supply Polar Fleece CPO Shirt
T.G.I.Fleece, right? Right. I love the idea of unexpectedly bright colors infused with our favorite chilly day classics like this rugged and warm button down. The fabric is functional for fall, while the bold indigo plaid says, “Surf’s up.”$125
Dr. Martens 1460 Pebble
To trace through the history of iconic men that claimed Doc Martens as their trademark footwear would be to name nearly every talented rebel since the early 70s. These distinctive boots may seem more mainstream in the wake of the recent 1990s style resurgence, but make no mistake: you’ll still look – and feel – like a total badass.$265
Fossil Q Nate Dark Brown Leather Hybrid Smartwatch
If you want to dabble in the tech-meets-timepiece craze without looking like you’re donning a tiny wrist-computer, this is the smartwatch for you. Fossil created their line of hybrid watches to seamlessly blend analog design with smart connectivity. Meaning: No one will know you’re counting your daily steps or receiving a text notification when you glance down at your watch mid-meeting.$195
Bonobos Relaxed E-Waist Wool Trouser
Don’t toss your tight pants just yet, but hear me out: This 90’s skater trouser trend is about to give your waist and thighs a well-deserved reprieve from the slimmer fits you’ve been wearing. The slightly looser and cropped cut of these drawstring (yes, drawstring!) trousers looks laid-back, while the wool provides a luxe structure. Pair them with a button down and brogues or fully lean into the trend with retro Vans and a crewneck sweatshirt.$185
Daneson Bourbon Toothpicks
Just like a good meal and a good bourbon, tough guys and toothpicks go hand-in-hand. Luckily, with these bourbon-soaked toothpicks you get a 2-for-1 (errr, 4-for-1) special. Pop one in after your next steak for a taste of Kentucky bourbon flavor – and feel free to bask in your relentlessly cool vibe.$28
Patagonia Classic Retro-X Jacket
Sure, the sturdy wind-blocking fleece may outfit you for serious ranch work, but there’s a good chance you weren’t herding cattle this morning. Which is why I’m more into the retro design and downright cozy look of this Patagonia favorite. Add this to your fall outerwear rotation, then get ready for a lot of (hands-on) compliments.$199
