Trend Alert: Menswear

Menswear is a big trend right now, and if you don’t generally wear men’s clothes, you might be intimidated by it. But it isn’t as difficult as you might think. You can mix some of your favorite existing pieces to get that trendy menswear look.

This week, I will show you several pieces in my own closet as suggestions to make the daunting trend more attainable for you.

Let’s start with a basic sweater and button-up combo. You probably wear this already and didn’t even know you were wearing the “in” style!

Dark slacks, a simple khaki sweater, and a button-up shirt can be very masculine. So for this look, I chose a light pink button-up to add a touch of femininity to an otherwise masculine look. I also added a long gold and silver necklace and camel belt. I normally avoid wearing long necklaces and belts together, but in this case, I think it works. To add a last touch of femininity, I wore my leopard print heels.

Overall, the look meets the menswear style while still maintaining an air of femininity.

How have you rocked a sweater and button-up recently?
