Get used to it, boys. We’re taking a deeper plunge into your closet and coming out with more than just your comfy sweaters and jeans. Blame the fall runways for giving us a fresh twist to menswear’s tweeds, plaids and everything in between.
This season, the classic pinstripe suit got a chic makeover with Stella McCartney’s big-shouldered double-breasted coats, boxy jackets and sweaters. Oversized coats were given angular shoulders and waist-cinching belts at Prabal Gurung while traditional oxfords were elevated with a clunky heel at Bottega Venetta.
This week, our Style Panel demonstrates its ability to blend in with the guys. Self-proclaimed girly girl Anum Khan of Summer X Skin is far from her feminine go-to pieces in a structured tweed-like blazer, a burgundy tie and enviable oxfords. New to the Panel, Nichole Alabi adds flair to a shirt that’s part of her menswear-inspired arsenal. Falling in Style’s Iva Grbesic details how to find the perfect men’s blazer and it’s all about the right cut ladies!
As if they’re plucked right out of his closet, these looks will make you want to dig in for just a few more pieces, but before you do, get some inspiration from the girls.
