Winter is that time of the year when ladies can try out the menswear inspired fashion.
Here are a few ideas you can try this winter and give a masculine touch to your wardrobe.
Cropped pants paired with a single button, double breasted blazer is a safe bet. Other suit styles to try out are a tux jacket and a wide-leg trouser. You could pair them with ballerinas or formal ladies shoes in colors to match. Go for mute colored shirts with textured fabric to retain the feminine elements. The color of this suit can range from black to navy blue with the shirts going from cotton to silk and satin to linen.
Turtle necks in white, black and textured fabric will fit the bill. If you are looking for a dash of feminine in your style, then go for a stripped silk collar shirt. Foulard print Capri’s are another variety of casuals that can give a menswear inspired look.
From long overcoats to bomber jackets, the warm clothing section can go a long way in giving you a masculine makeover. Cable knit cardigans are another classic in menswear. Adding one such knitwear in your wardrobe can give your power dressing a masculine feel.
Socks & Shoes
Shoes as accessories can gain the masculine look by retaining the cuts but transforming them into pumps. Shoes with leather patterns are also in vogue. Metal heel loafers not only resemble men’s style, but also have a feminine appeal to them. Strapped brogues in cooler shades of orange and tan are also in. When choosing socks go for the houndstooth knit variety.
Bags & Belts
Hard leather totes which are more vertical than horizontal can make your bags look masculine too. Crocodile embossed belts lend a definite menswear statement to the ensemble.
Watches make for excellent accessories for displaying your masculine style. Choose models with bigger dials and metal straps to complete the look.
