We've always loved outfits with a dose of masculine edge, so the current menswear trend is right up our alley. But no one wants to look like they dressed from their husband's closet, right? Check out these outfits for different ways to put a feminine spin on the "borrowed from the boys" look.
SHAPE, PRINT AND COLOR
Feminine shapes, print and color girl-ify some menswear staples. Start with a wool blazer that’s shaped at the waist. Add skinny jeans to show your curves. Then sprinkle in a floral top, red lace-ups, and seasonal accessories in unexpected colors for a look that hovers on the masculine/feminine border.

HIS JACKET, HER DRESS
Explore the menswear trend with a boyish bomber layered over a boldly printed dress. Chunky booties balance the heft of the jacket, while a studded clutch and rust-colored shades add some ladylike edge.

Wide-leg trousers in a menswear print anchor a slim wrap sweater and winter white jacket. Use suede loafer-heels to balance the width of the pants, and grab a berry colored satchel to add another touch of femininity.
