This year, it's all about Menswear (for women)

Menswear-inspired clothes for women.

Let that sink in. What are your thoughts? It's a trend that been around for ages and it's back in full force. These days, you might have to do a doubletake when you're in the women's department....it may actually look a little more like the men's section.

Don't be scared! Just think striped tees, button downs, destroyed denim and sneakers. Not too bad, right? In fact - really comfortable.

But here is a great tip (don't tell the stores we told you this) stop shopping everything in the women’s section of your favorite stores and spend some serious time shopping the men’s department. The men’s department has button-down shirts down to a science at this point, and we’re all about the look of a slouchy men’s dress shirt paired with jeans or leather leggings.

Plus, men’s shirts are made without the pesky seams women’s clothes have (located right on the sides of your rib cage) that make garments appear more fitted and dated. It's all about making the maximum impact with a minimum number of pieces. But with all this being said, pulling off the 'borrowed from the boys' trend doesn't mean sacrificing your femininity. Scroll through the gallery to get some creative ideas!
