STYLE GURU STYLE: Boyish Charm

The pre-fall 2015 line of 6397 proved to keep the season interesting with menswear for women. The line sports womenswear with a twist. Each outfit has a boyish charm to it whether it is their laidback boyfriend jean, the classic sneakers or the graphic T-shirts sported in the line. Even the dresses don’t feel overly feminine with their A-line straight silhouette and looser fits. Additionally, there is strength and structure along with femininity seamlessly woven throughout the line, keeping the classic look intact and wearable. Each look has a built-in slouch factor, either in the fit of the garments or in the accessories, that lend each one to be more wearable as well as very put together. To me, there was an intrinsic comfort factor built in with the casual menswear for women trend, and it is something that I was more than happy to explore, especially in these colder months.

Keeping the tomboy aesthetic, I played up the otherwise shapeless pieces with a high-waisted boyfriend jean as well as a textured statement coat. The graphic print of the sweatshirt adds to the more urban style and, paired with a baggier jean, the look takes a more casual and masculine motif. The converse sneakers also add to the ’90s theme of the medium washed jeans and the less formfitting attire. The overall look itself is playful, yet casual, and is easily one of the more comfortable ensembles to sport to class on a cold day.

The pre-fall 2015 collection has exponentially increased my love for menswear. Anything they can do, we can do better, ladies!
