Borrowing from the boyfriend has always been popular, but this season it’s been taken to a whole new level; we’re not only borrowing, girls are taking over the suit and rocking it better than any man.
A masculine tailored suit should be on the top of everyone’s list for this autumn. Paul Smith and Miu Miu give perfect examples of how to work a mannish blazer and high waisted trousers. You should look to find tartan prints or thick pin stripes. Or, if you’re feeling daring, mix them up; team a floral print trouser with a polka dot blazer, why ever not?
Stuck on where to begin? Why not start off with working some printed cropped trousers with a slouchy tee, add a leather belt for extra detailing. Team with a pair of short heeled boots to expose a little ankle. Want to find those perfect statement trousers? Check out these awesome beauties:
To pull off the boyfriend look a blazer is a must have in any girls wardrobe. Go oversized and slouchy, or fitted and cropped, the possibilities are endless! Team this with a collared shirt and some distressed denim shorts. For shoes, go with a pair of strappy heels for the perfect day to night outfit.
Now, lets talk bags. Want to be a little subtler when doing it like a dude? Adding a statement handbag can be the perfect masculine touch, giving a little edge to a girly outfit. An envelope clutch is a must have for transitioning from summer to fall, and also transitioning from day to night. Need more room? You should try a structured doctors bag, or a cambridge satchel.
Sometimes all it takes is the perfect pair of shoes to man up an outfit; thick soled brogues are a great way of showing your masculine side. You could be wearing a floral dress but wear this with a pair of brogues and your outfit has a whole new edge. This being said, the right pair of brogues will last you a lifetime, and the more distressed they look the better!
So there you have it! A few ideas on how to achieve the extremely popular tomboy look. With these key pieces you’ll be ready for the autumn in no time.
