Stuart Weitzman says “man up” this spring 2015!
To find out more about the menswear inspired fashion trend and more “borrowed from the boys” style ideas, see below. We’ll show you how to make the masculine spring 2015 fashion trend feminine and stylish.
How To Wear The Menswear Inspired Fashion Trend
Tip #1: Wear a Waist Belt
Instead of letting a masculine outfit swamp you, add a waist belt to accentuate your feminine figure. When wear oversized trousers, a waist belt will cinch your look adding ladylike appeal. Finish off the look with a classic pair of high heels.
Tip #2: Choose Colors
While there’s nothing wrong with wearing masculine clothing in neutral colors, pastel colors will instantly add girl appeal. A fitted shirt and some skinny jeans will instantly be more wearable to girly girls if they choose to buy in pastel colors. You could even try matching colors if you’re feeling adventurous!
Tip #3: Balance Out the Look with Accessories
Wear something loose with something tighter or low-cut to keep your menswear inspired look balanced. Your accessories can really help balance a masculine look by opting for a clutch bag, oversized sunglasses, and other feminine accessories. If you are wearing a girly dress, pair it with masculine accessories like a baseball cap, men’s watches, and/or cool sneakers. Use your imagination to create a look that feels balanced to you! If you’re looking for a more laid back look, you can opt for a pair of slacks and a sweatshirt; however, we recommend taking time to style your hair and makeup, as opposed to the bedhead look, so you don’t look like you rolled out of bed and simply picked up something off the floor!
Tip #4: Throw on a Masculine Blazer
Wearing a nice dress and some heels can look fantastic, but it’s also another fab opportunity to play with masculine pieces. Just throw on a masculine jacket and you’re good to go! This could be a blazer, an oversized denim jacket, or even a leather jacket.
Tip #5: Accessorize With Embellished Accents
Metallic accents are great for edging up an outfit and making just about anything masculine look a little dressier and more feminine. If you can include metallic or embellished accents with your masculine pieces, they won’t look so intimidating to wear! try wearing a full matching pant suit with metallic accents to a party rather than a regular dress. You’ll definitely stand out in the crowd!
Tip #6: Wear High Heels
A pair of high stilettos worn with an androgynous tuxedo pant suit is extremely feminine! We think of #GirlBoss!! Accessorizing with an embellished clutch and sleek, well-groomed hair style is a showstopping look.
Tip #7: Wear Loafers On The Reg
We love menswear inspired loafers or two tone black and white oxfords for day because they’re just so cool! They go with everything too, from destroyed skinny jeans and sweaters to cute skirts with tanks. Sincerely Jules went the casual route and glammed up her masculine daytime look with an embellished collar.
