The Art of Menswear!
There's something about menswear tailoring that crafts a strong silhouette, and on a woman, it's more powerful - it sends a message & makes a statement. The "borrowed from the boys" style isn't new - we seen it, loved it, hated it, & wished it would die in the late 80's early 90's with the emergence of funky teen sitcoms, but today's menswear offers something a bit more elegant and defined. Women can still be sexy, feminine, and show of their curves all the while bringing a masculine flair of structure & precision.
Menswear on women is all about creating the right silhouette. A baggy blazer paired with loose trousers can turn a menswear look south in a heartbeat. Fit is numero uno!!! - probably the most important aspect of grasping the concept of menswear. Nothing loose or baggy...a defined waist & perfectly hemmed pants.
The button-down (or button-up) is an ideal piece. It can be mixed and matched with any texture, print, or fabric. There are infinite combinations, build your menswear look around it. I like it best with the sleeves pushed up above my elbows. Button-downs/ups can be masculine, androgynous, & feminine all at the same time + + +.
Overall menswear can actually be quite liberating. Channel your masculine energy and create looks that are suited for the office and for play!
