Having a significant other can make for a lot of sharing.
From cars and dinner bills, all the way to rent and (gasp) feelings, you and your partner will probably end up going Dutch on all you can.
But one thing men don’t often expect to share when entering a relationship with a woman is their wardrobe.
Well, think again.
Wearing a man’s clothing makes us feel cozy, dainty, and cool. Our favourite thing about wearing your digs? They smell like you.
Those sweatpants you were planning to wear before bed, the blazer that was draped on your chair, and that stinky tee in your hamper – woosh, they’re gone.
But before you call the laundry police the next time you can’t find your favourite hoodie, you should know that these are the pieces your lady is probably already making her way out your door with…as well as one surprising item you’ll be sad to hear is safe and sound from her thieving ways…
The early stages of clothing thievery begin with items you may not even notice. They may look ridiculous on us – with the heel indents coming up to our calves – but there’s something so cozy and comforting about wearing our man’s socks.
You’ve all experienced it at one time or another. You’re at the bar and a girl you may not even know just grabs your hat off of your head and runs for the hills. Hats are another magnetizing item we can’t help but swipe. Once a woman decides she wants to be your girlfriend, your hat collection will be as tempting as that tub of cookie dough ice cream sitting in your freezer. She’s not only wearing your stolen hat collection around her house, but there’s also a compilation of boyfriend hat selfies sitting on her iPhone. To post, or not to post, that is the question…
3. Boyfriend Jeans…Literally
What more can we say? Boyfriend jeans are the hottest trend right now, who are we to not give in to their seduction?
There’s something about wearing your man’s chunky watch that makes us feel charmingly feminine. Don’t fret, most likely she won’t wear it outside of the house, but she will definitely flaunt it like it’s hers inside.
None are safe from a woman’s grasp, but especially the smelly ones. Nothing beats the smell of your man’s cologne, deodorant, and his own manly scent.
Tip: Next time your lady stays over, just have her favourite t-shirt waiting for her on your bed. If we couldn’t get comfortable before, we can now properly snuggle next to you on the couch and watch a movie.
This love affair with men’s hoodies is universal. Every woman has a collection of men’s hoodies and we promise to get rid of the old ones, as long as we are sufficiently restocked with yours. There is nothing a woman likes more than a comfortable sweater, and nothing is more comfortable than our man’s oversized ones. The University Hoodie with the grass stains and holes in it? We would wear that thing to work if we could. A good hoodie is the ultimate find, no grubby sweatshirt is safe around our manicured hands.
7. Your Lightweight Jacket
We’ll be back in a minute, we’re just going to run to the store to grab something (slips on jacket)…
8. Suit Jacket
This is the one item that is actually offered to us by our man and is the one item that we don’t want to keep. The shoulder pads don’t make us look dainty, we just feel beastly and boxy. No, no, this doesn’t mean we won’t take you up on your offer to wear it, we’re still cold, but once this draft goes away and we heat up on the dance floor, you can have right it back.
Sunday afternoons lounging around the house = sweatpants. We may have to keep hiking them up and the bottoms of them will dust up your floor, but isn’t that cute? Oh, you don’t? Too bad, we’re wearing them anyway.
*The One Item We Don’t Want to Steal? Your Dress Shirt.
And of course it’s the one item that a man actually wants to see his woman in. Every man fantasizes about waking up to his girl making breakfast in nothing but last night’s dress shirt (thanks, Hollywood), but that starched collar and those annoying cuffs don’t exactly scream relaxation. Also, buttons? Please, ain’t nobody got time for that.
