Fall 2012 Trend: Menswear

One of the trends for Fall/Winter 2012 is menswear.  I’ve always liked menswear touches in women’s fashions and, occasionally, I dabble in the look myself.  These wide-leg, navy Anne Taylor trousers are definitely inspired by menswear yet they’re so elegant.  And I’m kicking myself for not getting them in other colors when I bought them on sale several months ago.

Carrying through with the menswear theme, I wore them with a crisp, white, sleeveless blouse from JCPenney but the small ruffle around the neckline – and my leopard print belt from Target – add necessary touches of girly.

What makes menswear work on women, in my opinion, is when the pieces, or a suit, are styled very femininely.  Otherwise, you’re just a chick in a dude’s suit.  (Though if that’s the look you’re going for, work it.)

In keeping with the menswear theme, did you notice my super short “boy cut”?  I finally let my hairstylist go all the way.  It’s very Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby and I love it.  I especially love how quickly I can get ready in the mornings now.

    Felicia, I LOVE the hair. And you look great in general!

    • Thanks, Erin! This super short ‘do is working really well with my life right now. I feel as if I’m always either sweaty or soaked (or soaked in sweat) these days but my hair still looks good.
