Rachel Zoe Shows You How To Nail Borrowed-From-The-Boys Style
Rachel is most commonly seen wearing some variation of a menswear-inspired ensemble. Whether she opts for wide-leg trousers, an oversized knit or a tailored blazer, her ability to nail the borrowed-from-the-boys vibe is enviable. Naturally, we tapped her for her tips.
One of the easiest ways to nail the trend is to ground your look with a menswear-inspired watch. Select a style like Chanel's new BOY•FRIEND Tweed watch, that effortlessly balances a sleek masculine shape with feminine touches. Drawing inspiration from the tweed fabric that has been one of Chanel's style codes since 1924, the timepiece's steel bracelet is stamped with the signature pattern. The resulting style adds a dose of masculine confidence while still radiating feminine allure and pairs well with everything from a little black dress to a tuxedo.
Opt for a neutral color palette, working with shades of gray, cream, black and navy.
Incorporate oversized silhouettes into your ensemble but always balance them with more fitted pieces. For example, Rachel wore this oversized hooded Chanel coat as a dress and paired it with over-the-knee boots for a dash of feminine appeal.
The leather biker jacket is a quintessential borrowed-from-the-boys staple. By selecting a snug, cropped version and teaming it with slick trousers, a button-up shirt and a menswear watch the overall result embodies insouciant cool.
Carry the menswear vibe into evening by trading your traditional black dress for a tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit. Try a style in a luxe fabric like Rachel’s satin Chanel version, and finish with a statement necklace and watch.
