This year has seen fashion designers worldwide discard for traditional stereotypes with the rising trend of ‘women wearing menswear’ liberating women’s wardrobes worldwide. Here are a few tips to get you started this season.
Shirts – As women, the fashion industry provides us many shirt styles…plain, patterned, fitted or loose. But there’s just something about a tailored man’s shirt we just can’t seem to resist. Over-sized and under appreciated, there’s something eye-catching with buttons going up the wrong side of our body. With a boxier cut and longer sleeves to roll and cuff, this style is here to stay. Uniqlo.com offers a huge range of menswear shirts.
Trousers – Ankle-length trousers are definitely something we’ve stolen from men’s wardrobes, introduced to us by the Brooks brothers in 2000, both men and women have been embracing a shorter trouser length ever since. ASOS.com currently has the best selection of women’s ankle length and cropped trousers.
Tuxedo Style – From an elegant evening to a casual outing, the menswear trend Tuxedo Style continues to be fashion-forward and avant garde. Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham, Kirsten Dunst, and Emma Watson made this trend uber chic since 2011. A tuxedo blouse styled with a pencil skirt, or tuxedo pants for an evening look. A 2 piece tuxedo suit or jumpsuit to be trendsetting.
Hoodies – Hoodies continue to be the number one menswear trend not only this year but on-going. Women love hoodies because they maintain the same softness, they are super versatile, over-sized and envelop our body, well-fitted they accentuate a woman’s curves. Wear this with a pair of skinny black jeans or leather leggings for a winning style. For the best range of boyfriend hoodies and more, the place to shop is ThomasGun.com.
