Autumn is the season to try new clothes and mix and match styles with different layers. One of my favorite styles this season is trying some menswear as womenswear in outfits. I love this style because you can create multiple looks without investing a dime in your wardrobe. 😛 Over time such outfits have become a staple in my wardrobe. If you want to experiment with menswear then read on. Here are a few tips on how you can style an outfit from the male wardrobe in your house (be that from your dad’s, brother or partner’s.
I tried a casual look with my hubby’s office shirt (sorry dear hubby for that, but I haven’t spoiled it ;)). I knotted the shirt around my jeans, so that it doesn’t look oversized and I also rolled the cuff for a casual look. It is a structured outfit, for a more glamorous look you can even pair the outfit with statement heels. I prefer wearing flats whenever possible since they are more comfortable. But that’s just me.You can even style this outfit with skinny or crop jeans too, but I have put together this look by going for ripped jeans as I wanted a more casual Friday or a weekend look. If you want you can also button up and tuck in the shirt instead of knotting it up.
I am also planning on trying this look with a white shirt or a pair of shorts for a more relaxed look. Sometimes you can steal a jacket: P. You can also have an unbuttoned shirt with a solid colored t-shirt inside.
Here are other ways you can style menswear:
Work Wear: A basic tee or a v-neck tee from your boyfriends wardrobe can be used to style a formal outfit. Tuck in the t-shirt in a pair of skinny jeans or a pencil skirt and team it with a structured blazer and heels. For a more glamorous look you can also add a statement piece of accessory like a necklace or bracelet with a bold lipstick or nail colour.
Layer it up: You can also use a shirt as a light jacket on a dress. For a more form fitting look you can add a belt to your outfit. The shirt can help dress down an outfit to create a totally different look.
Dress Shirt: Dress shirts are in this season. Button up a solid colored shirt with a pair of boots or casual shoes. Add a little oomph to your outfit by putting on a belt around the waist or jacket. For autumn you can also team up the shirt with a scarf and a fun hat.
Lounge Wear: There is nothing more comfortable than your large size t-shirt for night wear. It is loose, comfortable and looks super cute. Team up a graphic tee with your favorite pjs or shorts for a lazy weekend in bed.For all those girls who are single, don’t worry, you can try this style by raiding your dads or brothers cupboards too. But don’t tell them that you got these ideas from me or they might try to kill me …ha ha ha.
