Like A Boy


Menswear has become a staple trend in woman’s fashion for some time now. More and more we are seeing ladies for-go their frilly skirts and high heeled shoes for the laid back and comfortable feel gained when wearing men-like clothing. Because we love the trend so much, we have put together a list of the top men’s inspired pieces we are currently embracing this season. Take notes ladies.

Boyfriend Watch: This trend continues to gain popularity. What better way to add arm candy to your wrist than with a large over-embellished men’s watch? Blinged out men’s watches come in every color and metal, and are simple yet polished additions to your wardrobe.

Briefcase: The men’s inspired briefcase, or satchel handbag is a staple accessory this season. They are chic and beyond sophisticated, yet casual enough to be worn as an everyday handbag.

Oxfords: Women’s oxfords are by far the most comfortable shoes ever. They are the perfect blend of preppy and cool. The best thing about oxfords is that they come in various colors and styles. Trust us, you can never get bored with them.

Bow Ties and Tuxedo Blouses:
Janelle Monae is the queen of this men’s wear trend. Effortlessly, she makes a masculine look seem feminine and might we add sexy. Tuck in a tuxedo blouse with a pair of black riding pants and oxfords. Viola, you’re channeling the lovely Janelle Monae!

Suspenders: The thought of suspenders can bring horrific images of high watered pants and nerdy glasses. However, if worn correctly suspenders can be super cute. Pair them with fitted jeans and a plain white tee and trust us Steve Urkel will be the last thought that comes to your mind.

    Men’s trousers are pretty great too!

    I’m sort of upset about this piece. It has nothing to do with the author or the content (because it’s wonderful), but the tone is rather striking… It’s a lot less judgmental than the others articles I’ve read on this site concerning the reverse for wear, that is to say when men dawn female or feminine attire. I’m trying to understand why both sides of the spectrum can’t be treated with equal bias or neutrality. Especially in a blog for fashion. I guess it’s an opinion thing, but really :/

    Anyway I’m totes feeling the boyfriend blazers and suit ups! The fact that garconne style is coming back makes me happy.

    Love this article! (Janelle Monae’s look is the fire, nowadays.) And I agree with Tomi-chan. Double standard, much?
