I think it’s safe to say that we all have a little Lou in us.
This fall we’re excited to embrace our inner tomboy and mix in a little menswear to our looks. Adding in boy elements to an outfit is a perfect way to achieve that ‘cool girl’ look. If you have a boyfriend, you’re in luck. The term “boyfriend jeans” wasn’t coined for no reason – stealing things out of a man’s closet is totally okay in our opinion. From their perfectly broken-in jeans, to the oh-so-soft flannel, to the over-sized button-down that goes with everything, the options are endless. And if you don’t have a man to borrow those things from, we’ve got some great options this season that are just as good as the real thing.
Mix fitted pieces with looser, more masculine add-ons, like this sleek pencil skirt paired with a classic menswear button down, field jacket, and slip on sneakers. Perfect for a weekend farmer’s market or flea market date.
The Baseball Hat
Not just for ball games, baseball hats are big this year, and we couldn’t be happier about it. A leather-brimmed hat is perfect to throw on with a casual maxi dress and over the knee boots, for a super casual look.
Leather makes everything better, and such is the case for these masculine leather loafers. Add a pair (plus a leather harness) to a feminine dress to instantly toughen it up for a night out.
How do you plan to mix in menswear this fall? Be sure to share in the comments!
