One Of The Boys: The Fashion Girl Way To Rock The Menswear Look



As trends have been rotating throughout the seasons, it’s no surprise that the current times are revamping and overhauling the classics.

Menswear dressing is the ultimate timeless trend that has been sported by women since the dawn of time. From icons like Marlene Dietrich who was practically one of the figures who pioneered power suiting among women to modern sartorial mavens like Alexa Chung who has been giving a subtle feminine spin on the dapper male style, this look remains to be a favorite in high fashion.

As the streets of New York and European cities gets filled up with this gender-bending style, here are 4 ways on how to ace the menswear trend:

Menswear doesn’t always mean black suits. Spice it up by choosing vivid hues for a fun, monochromatic look and a real fool-proof way to stand out in style. For subtle elegance, you can even wear a lace top or any textured bralet under the blazer. Complement the striking shades with some color blocking by accessorizing with a multi-toned clutch.

You can never go wrong with the maximalist way of dressing. Opt for subtle layers or really go all out, channeling the true spirit of Rick Owens. You can even incorporate a minimalist athleisure look in the ensemble with black and white hoodies, trackies, and trainers–think a toned down A$AP Rocky on an errands day. Keep it comfy and convenient with a chic backpack.

For a more subtle spin on menswear, pair basics (a white button down or a black turtleneck) with bright colored or printed trousers. Put an accent to the minimalist pieces with a printed satchel.

The ultimate go-to for menswear dressing is printed co-ords for a statement look that’s refined and polished. Beyonce sported this style several times (our favorite being her white floral Acne Studios suit).
