Borrowed From The Boys
Fall/Winter is a favorite amongst the fashion and style community because the dropping temperature really challenges you to push the envelope to be fashion forward as well as warm. With added layers there’s so much depth to play with your personal style. While most look to celebs and runways for trends and pull influence from the changing leaves and nature for a crisp and warm color palette, we thought of an avenue that really can set your Winter wardrobe apart. Menswear. The influence of menswear on women’s fashion has circled back around in a big way. We put together a list of 9 must haves you should borrow from the boys.
Have you ever noticed all the different collar and cuff styles that men can buy white dress shirts in? Don’t get us started on the weight. Well you can make them work for you. A simple enough find. You can dress this up with nice slacks or down with a pair of jeans and a pump.
A constant for Winter trends is the Fedora. The felt, wide circle brimmed hat can elevate any look. It gives any outfit a polished finish and hint of mystery.
Big face watches will definitely make you feel like you’re making power moves. Grabbing a statement watch this season with intricate detailing or more rustic features like a wood grain face or leather band is one way for you to spark conversations.
Staying warm is the obvious reason for this next piece but the glamour and high-fashion feel of it all! An overcoat is an easy way to elevate any outfit.
Layering is a given during this season so why not add a bit of pazazz. A suit separate vest is the perfect thing for an otherwise simple Fall ensemble.
Denim is always a good thing to have on hand. Boyfriend jeans create a boxier silhouette that compliments the aesthetic you find in a lot of fall pieces. It can also balance out softer daintier layering pieces like a camisole and sweater combo. A good boyfriend jean is honestly perfect any time of year.
Oxfords, a comfy casual shoe that has gotten a modern spin as late. From metallic to steel toe finishes even platforms have been added to the classic spectator shoe.
One of the more dated but still trendy selections is the Newsboy Cap. The unique shape and short brim is the perfect accessory.
Now for men a Tuxedo jacket is for formal affairs but it can double as the perfect coverup for a winter night out!
Boys shouldn’t get to have all the fun. Shake up your Winter wardrobe this year and tag us in your new looks @boxbeautyco !
