Do you like menswear as much as I do?
A female actress that really rocks menswear would be this fabulous lady…
There is also this smashing woman that does a great job of sporting menswear…
Or this lovely lady…
All of them are over 40 BTW…
It might be strange coming from me, because you know I love my dresses…but nothing makes me feel more badass than when I’m wearing a menswear inspired outfit.
I feel like all I’m missing is a holster in the shot below.
Chambray shirt – TJ Maxx (similar), Jeans – thrifted (sim) Boots – Miss Moos (really nice wedge booties!), Vest – TJ Maxx (sim), Tie – Le Chateau (sim), Hat – Gift (sim), Leather jacket – Danier (sim this one in blue is GAWgeous!)
Go ahead! Make my day punk!
I enjoy menswear inspired outfits because
they make me feel powerful.
But they do.
What does that say about society? What does that say about me?
I don’t want to think about it too much.
They’re just clothes after all.
Over analyzing details in life can rob you of simple joys.
When I see a women dressed head to toe in menswear I personally identify her as confident, creative and daring. I’d love to be considered any one of those adjectives.
What do you think of when you see a women dressed in menswear inspired clothing?
Could you see yourself wearing any of the outfits I put together below?
Note that you could switch out any of the jeans with a pencil skirt or any of the shoes for a colourful pump if you wanted to “fem” up the look at bit.
In the same sense you could switch out the button up shirts for a silk blouse (even a tie blouse) and each of these looks would still be great. I switched out the t-shirt for the blouse and some heels here.
I’ve got this whole look hanging in my closet right now…must give it a try.
Here are three more of my masculine styled outfits…
Wearing polkadots with a fedora and vest…it works!
Rocking another tie and faux leather pants.
And one last look… I think this is my favourite with the gingham and red tie.
Are you attracted to menswear inspired outfits? Have you ever worn a men’s tie?
My husband owns quite a few great bow ties and I’ve love to put together an outfit with one of them for fun, just to see if I can pull it off. I like a challenge : )
