How to wear masculine styles for women?

5 November, 2021

We’ve sounded the horn for this Winter’s trend alert: adding a masculine touch to even your most feminine outfits.

It’s been on the rise for a while now, and we can confirm that including masculine styles in women’s wardrobes is one of the trends that is clearly dominating this season’s looks. With tailored trousers, full suits, blazers, oversized shirts and waistcoats, and more, this trend is one of this Winter’s most elegant and comfortable. When it comes to footwear, of course, brogues or loafers will be the must-have item to put the finishing touch to your sophisticated look.

All these garments are frequently seen in androgynous styles, and knowing how to wear them is as simple as it is effective. Are you ready to know how? We’re here to tell you!

How to wear masculine styles for women?

The key is to mix very feminine garments, such as a pair of stilettos, with others with a masculine feel, such as an oversized tailored suit, all in the same look. A contrast of styles, which may seem like opposites at first sight, that create an incredible result when worn together.

If in doubt, choose oversize

This season, oversize cuts and minimalist style are the stars of this trend. We saw them in many fashion shows, such as Calcaterra, Celine, Chanel or Christian Dior, where straight lines, neutral colours and oversize cuts made everyone dream.

Ideas to try an androgynous look

Do
  • Choose loose-fitting garments with straight cuts and lines
  • Favour neutral colours such as browns, greys, blacks, whites and blues
  • Try a total tailored look combined with loafers or stilettos: a closed dinner jacket worn as a top, with nothing underneath, finished with a pair of brogues
Don't
  • Fall back on tight-fitting garments
  • Search for loud prints such as leopard
  • Embellish your outfits excessively
  • Look dishevelled with worn-out or torn garments
Banish any limits to your style
