CHAMBRAY SHIRT: Buffalo Jeans by David Bitton (Marshalls)// SKIRT: Necessary Clothing// SHOES: Nine West
I mentioned earlier today on Facebook and Instagram that I have been inspired a lot lately be menswear, which I'm sure you've noticed too, with some of my outfits. I think it may be that there are more pieces that have been inspired by "him" that still capture that feminine element, which makes it appealing. There's the fedora, which has been around forever, blazers, oxfords, brogues, smoking slippers, loafers, and the oh so popular boyfriend button-down and jeans. While I'm not too sold on the boyfriend jeans yet, I love men inspired footwear. They give off a dressy yet casual vibe simultaneously, which I like, since it provides more versatility.
This outfit has some subtle touches of menswear. The most obvious may be the shoes, which have a loafer feel to them. The other would be the chambray shirt and part of the way I styled it. I paired a white cami underneath, which gives off that same vibe as a white beater shirt underneath. However, I knotted the front, which creates more of a softer and feminine twist.
Aside from the style of the look, I love the color combination of the three pieces; they have a very fall feel to them. They blend rather nicely and offer character and a bit of intensity, which I like.
So, don't be shy to experiment with some menswear inspired pieces. If you're bae is getting ready to toss one of his work shirts out, try to work it into your wardrobe, by pairing it with a fedora and fitted jeans, to keep that feminine feel. The key to pulling off the look, is to blend both menswear and womenswear together, while featuring more female silhouettes/structures, colors, or fabrics ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Come back tomorrow :)
