Let’s admit it: we’ve all stolen from the boys. Whether it’s your boyfriend’s jacket or your dad’s watch, for some reason, menswear is just irresistible. Well, this year, the runway agrees.
Designers had fun playing with fabrics like herringbone, houndstooth, and pinstripes, all the while adding feminine touches using drapery or adding feather embellishments. Just because the fabrics are manly doesn’t mean they can’t coexist with a womanly touch.
The key to pulling off menswear is simple: don’t forget your femininity. This is women empowerment! Move beyond the boxy suits and follow the example of Lanvin and Stella McCartney. Show off a feminine shape by playing with the cut to add structure to masculine patterns.
