There’s no denying the fact that menswear is having a serious moment in the ever-evolving world of womenswear. We’ve seen a surge of tailoring — from waist-cinching wide-leg trousers and oversized blazers to re-done oxfords and polos — on runways and in street style galleries alike. Needless to say, this is not your dad’s menswear. These wardrobe staples prove ultra-cool contrasted against the best womenswear pieces your wardrobe has to offer.
In partnership with shoppremiumoutlets.com — a brand new way to shop designer pieces online at outlet prices — we’ve tapped our fashion-experts to recreate three of the best menswear-inspired looks for fall. Whether your day-to-day style is minimalist, maximalist, frilly and feminine, or effortlessly tomboy, these menswear must-haves will revive your autumn wardrobe with true It Girl energy.
A three-piece suit likely isn’t top of mind when it comes to on-trend tailoring in womenswear, but it turns out this menswear classic can be seriously chic with a few simple swaps. Styled shirtless beneath the suit’s button-up vest, this borrowed-from-the-boys look takes on a modern and sexy spirit.
If you’re not quite ready for a head-to-toe tailored look, dip your toes in the trend while wearing a comfortable staple like your go-to blue jeans. Paired with a cropped tuxedo jacket, you can turn the power-dressing up and down as needed.
Bigger isn’t always better, but when it comes to fall attire, a bit of extra room in the shoulder of a coat or the leg of a pant is never something we’ll be mad about. Paired with a foolproof oxford button-up and trouser that emphasizes the waist, this oversized looks proves flattering and functional.
