Women in menswear is a trend that’s been around for quite some time and making it look stylish is not as hard as you might think. So once again I’m borrowing style inspo from the boys.
Growing up I didn’t get to start freely wearing pants until high school (shocking I know), but that didn’t stop me from sneaking and wearing my dad’s or brothers clothes whenever I could. The kicker, though I didn’t know it at the time, was where I got to experiment with adding menswear into my style. And here I am over 20 years later still wearing mens clothes.
I got both the denim shirt and cargo shorts from the mens section at the thrift store. You guys don’t sleep on shopping the mens section, no matter if it’s retail or resale. You might actually find a few gems.
Now more than ever, comfort is the objective when it comes to getting dressed. Like if there’s a possibility that I’ll have to suck in the mom gut all night or a chance that my feet after an hour will feel like I’ve been dancing on nails, I can’t get down with that outfit.
The cool thing about wearing menswear is I don’t have to worry about the clothes fitting too tight, yet it can still be flattering. All I’m saying is styling oversized looks has been a game changer.
