The boys are back in town

As a woman, you should only ever go for feminine, girly items of clothing. Right? Well, not always. The masculine trend is here in a big way and we’re talking more than stealing your bloke’s jumper to curl up in—the high street is full of garments than can give your look the boyish touch, leaving you bang on-trend and giving you an edge whether you’re at work, rest or play.

There are various levels you can go for, whether you want to go for the full-on masculine suit (pinstripe options are a great way to go) or something on the more subtle end of the scale, with even a pair of brogues being a great way to channel the trend. Ribbed sweaters, oversized coats, messenger-style bags and even wide-leg trousers could all be good options too—it’s entirely down to your own personal preferences and what you can pull off.

The best thing about this look is that it can work whether you’re at the office or want something casual for the weekend, and with so many options to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice. You might want to keep a close eye on balance out your silhouette though—if you’re going for an oversized top-half you’ll want to keep your bottom half a bit more streamlined, and the same applies with the coat. Keep it baggy over the top and a bit more fitted underneath for the perfect look and a balanced silhouette, and you could even finish the whole thing off with a trusty duffle.

Something about it screams masculinity whilst being inherently wearable by both sexes making the duffle the perfect choice for the masculine trend, so make sure to add it to your boyish wardrobe and you’ll have the perfect look before you know it.
