Although most of the looks that I share on the blog are super feminine, menswear is my jam. I’m not talking women’s pieces that are meant to look masculine; I’m talking steal my boyfriend’s sweaters out of his side of the closet style menswear. What is is about men’s clothes that are sooo much more comfortable? Are they actually more comfy or is it just the forbiddeness of wearing them that makes them so much more appealing?
I love this sweater! Love love love it. My boyfriend visited family in Detroit over the holidays, and his grandfather sent him home with a box of his old clothes. A few pieces ended up in the closet, and one morning I was digging through trying to find something to wear to work, and this way just laying on my side of the closet like a little gift from the fashion gods. It’s vintage Christian Dior, so this designer label loving diva was in disbelief! It’s a size men’s medium, so it’s perfectly oversized on me.
I’m petite, so to balance out the proportions of a baggy sweater on top, I pair it with pixie pants. I also add heels, because they’re a feminine touch and help to elongate the legs. I think if I had chosen to wear flats with a baggy sweater, I would have looked frumpy and much larger than I actually am. I modeled in high school, and a lady at the agency I was represented by always stressed the importance of rolling your sleeves up to give a more feminine touch.
I found the hat to be a fun pop of color in a pretty neutral outfit! I played around with hats a lot this fall and winter, and this one was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend’s parents.
Also, I realized I had been tagging this coat a lot on Instagram, but that I hadn’t show it y’all on the blog! It’s sold out online, but I have tagged a similar option without the faux fur below. I love that it cinches at the waist, because winter clothes tend to make me feel like a bundled up blob of layers.
How was your Valentine’s Day weekend?! Are you a fan of the menswear look or is your style more feminine?
Happy Monday! Love ya!
