Men’s fashion has come a long way. Such a long way, in fact, that more and more women are beginning to incorporate masculine pieces into their wardrobes. We caught up with a few bloggers who are doing just that and asked them to tell us their perspective on men’s fashion.
“I have several masculine pieces in my wardrobe. Whether it be a worn-in plaid shirt or a chunky wool scarf, I really enjoy using these items in my daily repertoire. Whenever I wear something masculine I try to add a few unexpected feminine pieces to soften the look a bit. There is something about mixing a masculine item with an ultra-feminine piece that really excites me.”

“Honestly what looks good on men transcends beyond fads and consists of a staple wardrobe of coloured chinos, plaid and chambray shirts rolled up and heather grey T-shirts. Personally I find most inspiration from menswear when it comes to personal dressing, particularly when it comes down to playing with proportions, layering and cuffing (be it shirts or jeans). I love purchasing men’s pieces like shirts and tees and reinterpreting the three piece suit with a feminine twist: skinny waxed cotton jeans, a silk blouse and a cool leather jacket.”

“I love a man in a good suit and pinstripe tailoring is one of the trends I think looks good on men but it has to be subtle and not OTT. Whenever I use men’s clothing I always go for an oversized shirt paired with skinny jeans and minimal heels for a laid back casual look.”
