Then and Now

Menswear for Women

Menswear for women has come a long way since the late 70's. Designers have been coming out with a few key pieces and so far they have been doing great. The boyfriend jeans has been a big hit, women style them with either stilletos or some simple casual flats. Another look that I have been seeing is the boy fit trousers. They are supposed to be big in the fall, I completely agree because I have been seeing a lot of it in the runways and in Hollywood. When going shopping a lot of stores will have the boyfriend jeans, boy fit trousers, boyfriend sweater/cardigan. For shoes oxfords or loafers are huge, now they have made them with a little twist, they made oxford cut-out pumps. Personally I like this look, its fashion forward with a modern twist. I believe that it will be a trend for a while.
