It’s no secret that British men know how to dress themselves. Walking down the streets of London, the men are always dressed to the nines in oxfords, tailored suits and fabulous shoes. On my long walks to school every morning, I often find myself looking to British men for fashion inspiration more than the women. Borrowing trends from the boys is a great way to jazz up your wardrobe as a Fashionista. Masculine pieces like a classic oxford or an oversized men’s sweater can completely make an outfit.
This Fashionista uses menswear to give a unique flair to a casual everyday outfit. She pairs a cozy black long sleeved shirt she bought from the men’s department at American Eagle with Levi’s jeans. I love how she cuffs her Levi’s right above the ankle to show off the entirety of her menswear inspired shoes from the British brand Office. The cuffed slim fitting jeans and thin black belt give this outfit just the right touch of feminine essence. Lastly, her absolutely adorable glasses top off this laid back look perfectly.
Looking to your favorite female fashion icons for inspiration will always be a great idea. But, there’s no harm in being inspired for a new look by a Fashionisto! Next time you’re procrastinating writing a paper by spending hours on Pinterest and Tumblr, trying searching the websites for some great menswear. The images you find could make you think about shopping in a totally different way. A trip to the men’s department at your favorite store could leave you with some great new staples that you’ll love forever!
