Dude looks like a lady.
We’ve seen celebrities like Diane Keaton rock a tuxedo and boyfriend jeans dominate the skinny jean market, but when it gets down to the nitty gritty of everyday menswear, women don’t have to go far to find pieces that bring a new name to every day fashion choices. They can be found in a department store or handed down from your brother, but no matter where these pieces have derived, there’s no denying how good a girl can look in them.
There are many similarities in the overall design of both men’s and women’s clothing but one of the main differences is how these pieces can be worn. With the right shape and material, they can work as a staple with anything from a leather skirt to jeans. Feminine meets fierce in these easy wardrobe additions, and below are five of our top favorite menswear pieces that we will be adding to our wardrobe this Fall.
5 menswear looks for women to try out this fall
1. FlannelsIf you live in Colorado you probably already have about five. These loose-fitted shirts are a great layer over a lace dress and also work with pants, shorts and every skirt you can imagine. A good flannel goes a long way, both in the outdoors and the office. Unbuttoning it a little bit more with a simple high-neck top peeping through is a great way to mix a staple with a little edge. The addition of a scarf will also bring you to the most basic you can be this September whilst lighting your pumpkin candle.
2. Band T-shirt
Sometimes the most versatile tops in your closet are the ones with a little extra wear. These extra large shirts are the best things that came out of high school and are perfect in any wardrobe, no matter your style. Lighter fabrics work as an underlayer on the slopes as well as tucked in for a night out in a skirt. The more vintage the better including holes, rips and fade.
This one is easy but there is more than one way to make these dress shirts worthy of a revamp. There are plenty of options out there for women but the length and feel of the rolled sleeves of a men’s shirt is just the right amount of rugged wear we love to add to any outfit. Opt for a simple stripe or light color that works with darker pieces once it starts getting colder. You can’t go wrong until your boyfriend discovers they’re all missing.
4. White T’s
V-necks, crewnecks and pretty much any under shirt you can think of, there’s nothing like the simplicity of a white tee any day of the week. A men’s version has the same comfort but the loose, overall fit feels even more relaxed when tucked into high-waisted pants and is layered all season long. If it still feels a little too big, cinching it on the side or letting it hang off your shoulder is a great alternative.
5. Baseball Caps
This includes anything from baseball caps to cowboy hats, really. A larger bill adds an extra layer to an outfit and accessorizes with ease. It works with dresses, pants and especially leather jackets in ways you’ve never done before, so do yourself a favor and find one that will let you take your street wear looks to the next level of Cara Delevingne.
