STYLE ADVICE: Masculine Is In

From the moment our foremothers decided that pants weren’t going to be a gendered garment staple, women have set out to hijack men’s fashion and create looks that are even more interesting, sexy, and innovative than a lot of men would have thought possible.

With the surge of chokers and slip dresses on our timelines, it’s not a surprise to most of us that the ’90s are back in a big way. The Fresh Prince and New Kids On The Block bring back some very dusty vinyls but also usher in overalls, Timberlands and the androgyny associated with dressing for this grungy trend.

This Fashionista self-describes as a very masculine dresser, a fact that is often offset by her fully beat face and insanely gorgeous hairstyle. With a pair of black corduroy dungarees and an oversized vintage denim jacket, her style is a one-of-a-kind combination of throwback basics, highlighted by her bulky pair of trendy Timberland boots that will very likely come in handy in the Midwest this winter.

While she probably won’t be wearing it to her next job interview, this outfit manages to keep fashion-savvy students toasty on their walk to class without denying one’s undeniable sense of style. Without an obvious statement of color, this look proves that neutrals are still the star of the show and work on pretty much every level, for every gender.

I especially love details like the velvet scrunchie accessorizing her wrist, another shoutout to our generation’s favorite decade of the moment. The whole outfit embodies the duality of utility and style, exactly what overalls were initially manufactured for—and who doesn’t love good symmetry in their street style?
