For as long as I can remember, I have always gravitated towards men’s clothing. In elementary school, I wore my brother’s Generra sweatshirt with his Levi’s AND his turquoise high top Converse. Everything was ridiculously huge on me and I honestly don’t know what compelled me to wear his clothes in public, nor do I know why my mother let me out of the house looking like a fool. But that urge to don menswear stuck with me and I have been wearing boy blazers, oversized button downs, and loose trousers for quite some time. I am really digging all of the new ways to wear menswear – the feminine tuxedo blazer that is still masculine, the boyfriend jean, the heavy metal hesher denim jacket, and my personal favorite – my baggy vintage military pants. Here’s some inspiration for my menswear-inspired look that I plan to keep rocking for years to come.
My favorite model, Stephanie Seymour, in a power suit from 1986.
I adore this photo of the Chloè PR team looking chic and a little bit undone in their menswear-inspired garb. 2004.
The thrown together, sexy, cool downtown look that Erin Wasson has claimed. I am all about some short cut-offs and a perfectly cut blazer.
