There has long been a history of women incorporating pieces from men’s closets into their own wardrobe. Whether it’s a timeless, crisp, oversized button-up men’s shirt cinched at the waist with a belt, a blazer thrown over a cocktail dress or a pair of boyfriend jeans paired with ballet flats, a touch of menswear tailoring always adds polish to girly and everyday pieces. It’s a mélange, when done right, that can work for any occasion from casual weekend to black-tie functions. Borrowing from the boys no longer means having to sneak being their backs to get your hands on their threads thanks to the number of designers who drummed up girl-friendly, boy pieces this season. Expect this trend to make its way into spring with a large assortment of loose pants and tailored light blazers from the likes of Stella McCartney and Celine. Need more convincing? Just take a look at our round-up of style-savvy celebrities smitten with the trend to see what the buzz is all about.
