Fall Trend Alert: Menswear With A Feminine Twist
A new season calls for new trends and outfits that will set the tone for what you will wear for the following months.
For fall, the ultimate layering season, we’ve been spotting the menswear trend everywhere from the runway to the streets, and no doubt on social media. So here we present to you the key fall trends that you cannot miss, and some tips on how to style them.
As always, a good place to start is with the classics like this blazer, made perfect for layering. The grey checkered pattern is a classic that can be found easily in menswear. To translate this into something more wearable for everyday use, we’ve added a feminine twist with rolled up ¾ sleeves, and a waistline that is slightly cinched in, to maximize your natural ladylike silhouette. Whether you’re wearing a button up shirt or a blouse, you can throw this on to make your tops really come together. Feel free to add on a layer with a black or grey (or anything neutral for that matter) cardigan. For later months, this is the perfect piece to wear under your favourite winter coat or jacket, making this blazer a trustworthy wardrobe staple for months on end.
With your work pants, this will go flawlessly to create a more professional outfit while with jeans, you can obtain that effortless, chic look. For a more uniform, oh-so-trendy outfit, opt for pants with matching prints to create a seamless suit ensemble, featuring a paperbag waist for additional comfort. The folded up sleeves also add a younger, more relaxed touch, so feel free to wear it out on weekends even with sneakers!
Best of both worlds
Dress up and style up
If the suit outfitting is a little too office-wear inspired or if you’re looking for something softer for your taste, we recommend our pieces that are sprinkled with feminine floral prints. For starters, this beautiful dress features a background print of the grey checkered pattern to set the motif of the menswear trend but what steals the show is the blooming florals. Because this dress combines the best of the feminine and the masculine, you get so many more options for your shoes.
Go for those loafers or military-esque ankle boots (possibly with studs if you want to edge it up) to accentuate the masculine details of the dress. You’ll be able to achieve the cool, urban look that oozes with style and confidence. Throw on a leather jacket for an added layer of biker chic.
For a more elevated, elegant look, put on a pair of heels -- this will bring to life the femininity of the florals. This will also go well with that cardigan or trench coat that you’ve been meaning to sport on those colder days.
For something a little less dressy, our choice would be cozy sweaters that were cut with the menswear trend in mind, but completed with defining details that are much more feminine.
For starters, this black sweater takes a snug and semi-fitted silhouette that has a hint of the boyfriend sweater, but it features a funnel neckline to elongate your neck (and to keep you warm of course!) as well as a soft, rounded hem and of course, the contrasting floral print for an added “oomph”.
Alternatively, this ribbed sweater that will remind you of the classic men’s fishermen sweater can become your everyday-wear option. Upgraded with a more feminine structure and bell sleeves, you can pair this with almost anything thanks to its clean simplicity. Tuck it in your skirt or pants, or wear it out with your favourite jeans for a casual look. For a colder day, wear a crisp white shirt underneath for a warmer, more professional ensemble.
