Menswear-inspired looks will always play a huge part in ladies fashion. Mixing and matching feminine and masculine pieces in one outfit, to create a well-balanced and appealing modern look for women.
The cold weather makes it a bit tricky to borrow from the boys, but it can be done. For instance, borrowing a winter staple like a trench coat from the boys, not the usual piece we ladies borrow but definitely one to start looking into. What I love about their trench coats is that they are well-structured and obviously big, giving us more space to layer this winter.
Simple pieces like boyfriend shirts, blazers or jackets styled with feminine accessories, in my case Pointed-Toe heels, complete the ‘borrowed-from-the-boys’ look.
Borrowing from the boys doesn’t necessarily mean wearing an item from the men’s section but more about the proportions, however shopping in that section doesn’t do any harm – think of it as having more options.
