7 Menswear Inspired Looks

We love that we live in a time when anyone can wear whatever they want and absolutely love that traditional menswear is inspiring a lot of what women wear. This is nothing new and we are all here for it.

For centuries, fashion has been inspired by all sorts of things like pop culture, social movements and even wartime fabric rationing which gave birth to the bikini in the 40's.

Then came the 70's, inspired by the hippie movement where people chose to dress in order to showoff their personality, in ways that blurred the lines between men and women fashion.

So it comes as no surprise that menswear is making a comeback into what women are wearing today.

This is why we've rounded up 7 menswear inspired looks to give you some fresh inspiration on how to pair all your "borrowed from the boys" items in your wardrobe to deliver smashing looks that'll be all the rage.

If there's one thing that defines menswear, it's short sleeved button-ups and girls can totally pull it off too. You don't have to work a blue collar job to rock a button up with cropped pants and make a fashion statement.
