It's not often you get to shop looks straight from a movie set — especially when that movie is as prestigious as Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby (hitting theaters May 10) — but today's your lucky day. Brooks Brothers has teamed up with Academy Award-winning designer Catherine Martin to produce all the men's costumes in the epic movie, and now, you can shop the exact looks online at BrooksBrothers.com. Highlighting tailored striped blazers, crisp linen suits, and luxurious wingtip spectator shoes, there's no excuse not to add a dapper touch to your look now. See and shop the complete Great Gatsby Brooks Brothers collection here.

Brooks Brothers' blowout Spring Wardrobe Event kicks off tomorrow, running through March 6, but today, the retailer is unleashing the savings one day early exclusively online! We must say: it's the best kind of sale, because the more you spend, the more you'll save! Spend $200 or more, and you'll save $50 off your order; spend $500 or more, and you'll save $100; or spend $800 or more, and you'll save $200. It won't be hard to fill your shopping cart, either. With timeless pieces like cropped navy and white cardigans, leopard calf-hair booties, and ostrich-leather barrel bags, there's plenty to swoon over. If you need some inspiration, here are a few of our favorite pieces from the store.
With so many options in women's fashion, why is it so satisfying to shop the men's section? It's seductive to see a woman throw on her boyfriend's shirt and look utterly, and effortlessly, sexy. There's a confidence associated with a woman who can assert her femininity even when clothed in men's silhouettes. There's also the thing about the fit: it's not tailored to our body, and the boxiness adds a bit of mystery and je ne sais quoi. Here's what we're shopping from the men's — and in one instance, the boys'— section. Maybe it's time to play tomboy.

If there's a man in your life who has the dapper dress going on, but whose bachelor pad still qualifies as cringe-worthy, now he can shop for his throw pillows and cuff links in one fell swoop: Brooks Brothers has launched a home décor collection! The masculine new line, available exclusively online, includes decorative pillows and bedding and bath items.
Most noteworthy are the Tie Stripe Silk Twill Pillows ($248-$288), which are made from the English silk used to craft the brand's classic, dashing neckties — though I must say they're a bit overpriced. For the bedroom, Brooks Brothers Home offers two collections; the Blue Yarn-Dye line is inspired by men's dress shirts, while the Herringbone line features classic white linens with a three-row embroidered border. I'm just hoping one day they'll offer monogramming. Meanwhile, simple terrycloth towels, robes, and slippers make up the bath collection. The brand is expected to debut some more home accessories like lampshades this Fall, too, so stay tuned! Check out my favorite picks from the line below.
A hat can add the perfect finishing touch to a Fall outfit — so do yourself a solid and stay toasty in one of our top five choices. The downtown girl can sink her head into a floppy, fedora, or trilby style from Rag & Bone, J.Crew, or La Cerise Sur Le Chapeau, while the uptown lady can don cute cloche cuts from Brooks Brothers or Stella McCartney.
