Chic Style: Borrowed From The Boys
|Look out for these great style borrowings from the boys.|
One of the perks of being a woman is having endless options when it comes to fashion. We can wear dresses, skirts, high heels, and flashy jewelry. Sure, men have options too, but women’s fashion covers a wide spectrum. Although there is plenty of feminine fashion to choose from, sometimes it’s fun to borrow from the boys. Believe it or not, there are many menswear-inspired pieces worth adding to your wardrobe. Below are some popular menswear pieces that would look great on any woman.
The blazer has made a big comeback in recent years, and might be one of the most popular menswear-inspired pieces. Worn with a button-down shirt, the blazer is the perfect piece to wear for work or happy hour. Black blazer’s continue to be the most popular choice, but with the abundance of choices out there, there are plenty of colors and patterns.
Loafers and Oxfords
One of the best reasons to borrow from the boys is for comfort. Loafers and oxfords have long been a staple in a man’s closet. They are classic, versatile shoes that also have the benefit of being comfortable. What’s nice about these shoes is that they can be dressed up or down, but they always make an outfit look polished.
Bowties are a classic and preppy staple that dress up a man’s look. Pair your bowtie with a white button down shirt to make your outfit chic and sleek. If you’re hesitant to sport an actual bowtie, take a long black ribbon and tie it into a bow so it drapes down the front of your shirt. Add a blazer to create the ultimate prep school look.
You may think of your grandpa when you think of cardigans, but they’re actually quite chic when dressed appropriately. Think of those oversized, button-down cardigans. They are essentially a blank canvas, and would look great paired with skinny black jeans and booties. Now that it’s gotten cooler, a good cardigan will get you through those chilly days. Add a statement necklace if you want to dress up your casual cardigan.
