Bank v. Budget: Menswear Inspired

17 Oct

Menswear inspired apparel has been present in women’s fashion for quite a while. Thank the fashion gods for that because it is now socially acceptable to wear your boyfriend’s clothes out in public. Although designers generally trade in the traditional boxy mens cut for feminine, form-fitting silhouettes the resemblance is still present. Dress up or down any outfit with some of this season’s latest items, and give your boyfriend his shirt back because you can definitely find a cuter one.
