From the slouchy boyfriend jean to the oversized button down, here at our Phoenix and San Diego consignment stores, we’re a huge fan of walking, not only in his shoes, but in his entire wardrobe.
These days, his-on-her styles are cropping up everywhere in the world of fashion. Citizens of Humanity, Free People, True Religion – you name it, fabulous fashionistas.
But how do you go about incorporating menswear styles into your wardrobe? And more importantly, how do you make the look all your own?
(Did someone ask for some help from our Phoenix and San Diego consignment store pros? We thought so.)
Here is the My Sister’s Closet way to strut like you mean it in his shoes/shirts/jeans:
Boyfriend jeans: Here at MSC, we love love love the boyfriend jean. Comfortable, flattering, structured and functional, search for a pair that hits you at the hips. Though belting is always an option, stay away from pairs that are too roomy up top and save the slouch for the leg (adios, skinny jeans!). Roll up the bottoms to right above your ankle and rock a gorgeous pair of heels for a show stopping, out-on-the-town look.
The button down: When it comes to the men’s button down, we always take a cue from our girl Carrie Bradshaw. Look for something long and roomy, hitting mid thigh or slightly below (why not drop by Well Suited for a fast and fabulous find?). Keep the sleeves rolled down, the collar loose, and pair your look with a thicker belt at the waist. Feeling gusty? Go with heels. Something a little more casual? We love the look with underplayed gladiator sandals.
- The pantsuit: Chanel your inner Leighton, Halle, or the original badass, Ms. Diane Keaton for your pantsuit inspiration. Ladies, there is nothing more drop dead gorgeous than a woman rocking a suit. Look for fitted pants at the waist (similar to the boyfriend jean fit), a form fitting, tucked in button down, and a boxy suit jacket. Planning to go all out? (Please do.) Button up that top and throw on a tie. Hello, instant Annie Hall.
Feeling inspired? Just what we wanted to hear. Ladies, go forth and rock that menswear. After all, anything they can do…
