My husband hates shopping with a passion, so I mostly do it for him. As I'm looking through the men's sections, i have noticed that men's fashion is actually becoming quite feminine. The blazers, tshirts and trousers are alot more tailored and fashionable these days to the point where your man's clothes will go missing from their wardrobes and return smelling of your perfume. I admit i am often caught in my husband's hoodie. They are just so warm and cosy.
Looking at the girls walking through the high street i have realised I'm not the only one who likes the menswear-for-women thing. I guess it is officially becoming a trend now. However, I only like certain casual men's pieces and not completely dressing like a man. What I love to do is to take one or two men's pieces such as a blazer or jumper that are normally very masculine looking and make them part of a really girly outfit. However, i wouldn't be seen in my husbands baggy jeans. Not a flattering look. The outfit below is an example of how i would make a men's blazer more feminine. The blazer is £100 from Topman.com, the shirt is by Dorothyperkins.co.uk and costs £22 and the leather hot pants are £30 from Topshop.co.uk.
I really love this outfit, because even though the blazer is pretty masculine, I feel like the whole outfit together basically screams, I'm a girl!", especially with the gorgeous hot pants.
Females wearing masculine suits have also been quite popular lately, with some celebrities choosing to wear one on the red carpet.
If you try this look be sure to add feminine touches like a cute handbag ,killer shoes or a bright lipstick colour.
