Borrowed-from-the-boyfriend is the concept behind this season’s latest trend. From chic blazers to jeans and cardigans, it seems as if borrowing clothes from the men in our lives is quickly becoming an unbreakable habit! Continuing from previous seasons, tailored separates inspired by menswear, is a hot trend for women.
Contrasting with next season’s polka dot and pink trends, the boy meets girl look is much more subtle. Yet, elegantly achieving this look comes with practice. Don’t be fooled into throwing on any old piece of clothing from the menswear section- aim to look as if you haven’t been shopping in the menswear section at all.
Whitney Port, Alexa Chung and Kourtney Kardashian are constantly praised for there style, and no wonder! The rock the ‘Boy Meets Girl’ trend perfectly, each with a slightly different twist.
Menswear can often be loose fitting and baggy but this does not mean that you should dress frumpy. Instead, look for tailored items such as blazers that hit mid thigh or just below the waist. Pair with skinny jeans and ankle boots to complete the look. Our Ambra Chelsea Boots add a casual edge to this outfit, or if you like a heel why not go for our Chelley Black Leatherette Boots.
When it comes to mixing menswear into women’s fashion, the possibilities are endless. This trend is all about being able to wear menswear in a feminine way. We love Whitney’s addition of pastel shades, making her look very ladylike, despite wearing baggy clothes.
