Hi friends! I’m currently caught in the middle of an insanely busy/fantastic/fun New York Fashion Week! Get pumped for some of the amazing shots I’ve been able to take of the beautiful new lines.
In the meantime, above I’m wearing what will become one of the most popular trends for Fall/Winter, menswear. Androgynous looks are wild on the runway, with men and women walking intermingled in the shows, and clothing often gender neutral.
I’m a BIG fan of masculine styles, which may surprise you considering my clear love of feminine touches in my outfit. But that’s the key, keep those touches to prevent yourself from looking like a straight up man. Boyfriend jeans. I’m on board. Boyfriend jeans, a red oversized t-shirt, Vans, and a baseball cap? Not my scene. Could be a cute outfit on someone else if executed correctly, but I suspect you’re just going to look like a dude.
That’s the thing with trends. Don’t dive all in, ever. That’s a hard and fast rule. If you like a trend, ease it into your wardrobe and start off slowly.
Menswear looks beg the following:
- Slouchy jeans
- Oversized t-shirts
- XXL Men’s button down cinched at the waist with a belt (Personal fave for thrifting)
- Ties. Don’t be scared! Try a black skinny tie paired with a Peter Pan collar and skinny jeans. Or a red bow tie with black leggings.
- Oxford shoes
- Band/Graphic tees
Hope everyone is having a beautiful Monday, enjoying this touch of Fall weather, and is pumped about trying the menswear trend!
