Boy Meets Girl

The latest trend this fall is menswear as womenswear.  While out shopping yesterday at South Coast Plaza, I saw dozens of stores displaying boxy cuts, loose blazers, manly trench coats, and minimalist styling.

Take a look at some of the images from the Fall 10 RTW runways. Chloè, Balmain, Celine, and Marc Jacobs (to name a few) all rock the runways with menswear inspired pieces. The color palette is darker, yet neutral, and there are hardly any prints.

DKNY Abby Zip Pocket Trench Coat $99.98. Topman Grey Twill Briefcase $60. Splendid Contrast Button Shirting $96. TopShop Ruched Sleeve Blazer $125. Lands’ End Skinny Belt $29.50.

Outerwear – coats and blazers, are the perfect pieces to man up your closet this fall. Minimalist styling is the ticket to getting the look just right. Accessorize lightly with leather belts and bracelets. Try pairing your blazer with a loose button-down and oxfords.

Whether your menswear style of choice is tough and rigid or schoolboy prep, it’s a style that’s sure to last beyond just the fall season.
