In fact, we’ve actually felt pangs of pity for our boyfriends, husbands, colleagues, and basically every other average male who doesn’t have the option of rocking skirts, shorts, tights, strapless dresses, overalls, heels, crazy hats, red lipstick, and pretty much everything else that doesn’t include jeans and shirts (not that they don’t look great in them.)
However, we do need to give menswear designers props for creating pieces that have us totally enamored—and totally willing to buy and wear.

The thing we love about about men’s clothes, particularly men’s shirts: They’re made without the pesky seams women’s clothes have (located right on the sides of your rib cage) that make garments appear more fitted, so whether it’s a slightly oversized sweatshirt, a perfectly broken-in chambray shirt, or a simple tee, we manage to get a slouchier, cooler fit.
And, because we know you’re not going to stop buying plenty of women’s clothes this spring, everything we’ve found here is affordable.

So click through our gallery and start shopping theses 1o men’s shirts that’ll look better on you this spring!
Pineapple Cotton Shirt
How to wear it: This adorable shirt is cut slim, so we'd roll up those sleeves even more and tuck it into a pair of super-straight jeans, a black mini, or a pair of slouchy leather shorts for spring. Button it all the way up, or leave a few extra buttons undone and pop the collar, depending on your style.
$19.80, Forever 21.
Boys' Madras Sport Coat
How to wear it: Lots of stylish women know the secret to a perfectly shrunken blazer is often found in the boys' department. For spring, take a break from black and navy and opt for this chic madras version, which will look super-sharp with skinny faded blue jeans and a pair of classic black pumps.
$168, Brooks Brothers.
Printed Poplin Shirt
How to wear it: We'd tie this men's shirt at the waist, add a super-full black midi skirt, and some bright red lipstick.
Uniqlo Men's Chambray Shirt
How to wear it: Nothing beats a classic denim shirt in terms of versatility, and we prefer men's versions since they're made without the pesky side seams women's shirts so often have to make them form-fitting. Roll up the sleeves on this slim top and rock it as a spring jacket—it looks effortless over dresses and tees—or button it up and tuck it into trousers or jeans.
How to wear it: Yes, this is a men's shirt, but we think it'll look just as good on us when worn with a pair of brightly-colored ankle trousers or tucked into high-waisted black shorts.
$480, Mr. Porter.
