Trend To Wear Now: Borrowing From The Boys

 In Style

This season, women are taking a few cues from the guys, borrowing staples like sporty jackets, trousers of all sorts and slouchy denim. Since there’s nothing more chic than a woman rocking a tailored, menswear-inspired pant-suit, we encourage you to embrace your inner androgyny and embellish with a feminine touch—because anything they can do, we can do better!

Women in the Workplace: April showers bring high-waisted trousers. That’s how the saying goes, right? Maybe not, but there’s no better way to sport your menswear motif than in the office.  Pair your trousers with a silky button-down and statement heel for a chic, feminine edge.

Menswear in the Office


Trending Denim: Gone are the days of skin-tight jeans that you have to shimmy into—this season, style stars are reaching into their boyfriend’s closets for some slouchy, worn-in denim. Glam-up your tomboy spirit with a blazer and slingback ankle boots for a sleek look that can be styled for both day and night.

Girly girls: Don’t worry; there are plenty of ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobes without losing your feminine style. A two-piece trouser set is the perfect balance for those who are more subtly inspired by menswear. Add a tailored sleeveless vest or a hooded bomber jacket and some girly wedges, and you’ll have a considerably stylish outfit that showcases all of this season’s hottest trends.
