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.

adidas and Wings+Horns collaborated on these bad boys, and I’m very thankful they did. The two-toned knit upper and suede heel are ideal for adding a little extra oomph to a casual look – not to mention the creamy color that’s a luxe alternative to stark white.$190
Maybe it’s the color’s slight resemblance to a fresh eraser, but this shirt jacket screams back-to-school/work/style. At an ideal transitional weight, the light layer will fit seamlessly with your current warm weather wardrobe – while being warm enough for cooler days. Throw it over a tee or your favorite button down with jeans, then lean into autumn with a pair of chukkas or high-top sneakers.$265
Truth time: I enjoy everything about these pants. Namely, the fact that they’re just plain cool. On top of that? I’m all about the rich texture, bartack stitching (AKA the reason you won’t rip them), and easy-to-wear versatility. Pair them with minimal sneakers and a crew neck sweatshirt or derby dress shoes and a light blue button down for equally sleek outfits.$138
I’d imagine a stylish grandfather handing down this heritage sweater to his favorite grandson – and I would then like to meet said dapper grandson. It doesn’t get much more classic than a crew neck sweatshirt accompanied by red and blue stripes for an all-American vibe. Whether you pair this with trousers and a white dress shirt or dark denim and slip-ons, you’ll look perfectly polished.$115
Reverse shout out to over-stuffed wallets or – equally mind boggling – rubber band makeshift wallets. Especially when pulled from the pocket of an otherwise stylish guy. Upgrading from a wallet that’s bursting at the seams will streamline how your pants fit by removing that bulky pocket filler, while investing in a proper money holder will keep you from fishing in your pockets. A classic win-win scenario.$145
Backpacks for adult men? Absolutely. This design marries retro-inspired details with utilitarian updates for a bold carryall that’s stylish on – or off – campus. The leather details give a more grown-up appeal, while the waterproof nylon canvas will weather any wear and tear.$159
