If the world of alicia was the internet #menswear inspired trends would totally be trending this fall! Come fall, menswear inspired looks are always on trend. There’s something about menswear that is just classic when it comes to applying towards a women’s trend. If you take a peek on my pinterest you’ll find TONS of menswear inspired looks but what I’m LOVING this fall is mark.’s boy meets girl fashion this season!
Boy Meets Girl: You take a more masculine shape and put a more girly finishing touch to achieve this trend. For me it has to still look like you’re wearing something made for a girl with the right silhouettes but made trendy with the fabrics and finishes. For example how mark. did classic mixed with trendy with shapes, like the boxy tee, and details, like the mesh cut-outs!
Work Wear: Working in trendy items for work isn’t always easy but when in doubt, layer in a classic white button down. I LOVE how mark. styled the Any Day Tee and Day To Day Dress over a crisp white shirt. A tip so simple but I never think to do this! Pleated pants maybe should stay in the men’s department but when you make them slim, in a fluid fabric and in an ankle cut like these mark. Keeping Track Pants they become wardrobe must haves.
Need For Tweed: Fall fabrics to me mean menswear, plaids, birdseye, houndstooh, tweed and more! I love love love all the luxe fabrics come back in the fall, even if it is just the print. The best way to wear these fabrics I think is in a coat, it just looks rich and makes a statement. The Need For Tweed Coat from mark. has me smitten! Wearing a coat like this over a cute little dress (like the mark. Day To Day Dress) is an easy (and warm) take on a Friday night look. Don’t forget the leathers! (or faux leathers) in a sturdy handbag (you KNOW I’ve been all about this Neutral Territory Bag) and killer shoe/bootie!
Finishing Touches: Like any look it’s the finishing touches that make it all come together. For menswear I personally love adding some sleek metallic finishes and again mark.’s fall jewelry has the perfect solutions. They compliment the menswear trend, not compete. The lariat necklace has to be my #1 on the wish list.
Shop The Trends: Usually I’m inspired by a ton of different images, shops, bloggers but seriously this time the mark. magalog was all the inspiration I needed. I seriously want ALL OF THIS. If you’re a capsule collection shopper, as in you buy all things that mix and match together for a season, then this is the ultimate! I’m so all over the place and like different styles on the daily so I shop more for key pieces. If I HAD TO pick just a few key pieces to add to my collection I think first is the Neutral Territory Bag (and yes I did already pick this one up so of course it’s my #1), followed by the Need For Tweed Coat, Keeping Track Pants, Fine Lines Lariat and Top Story Hat. These are all classics for your wardrobe that you can wear again and again and mix with what you already have. What menswear trends are you loving?
