Trend Alert: How to Work the Menswear Look

What: Structured Menswear Looks for Fall

Why: After a summer of romantic, flowy Bohemian looks, menswear-inspired fashion is one of fall's best looks. From classic prints — houndstooth, plaid, checks and pinstripes — to ties on the necks of blouses, girls everywhere are beating the boys at their own game.

A lesson from the runways:

Don't be too matchy-matchy, but instead mix and match patterns, pairing a plaid skirt with a mini-check top. And a hint for making the look work in real life: choose one big, bold pattern and a complimentary, smaller one. Two of each can be too much.

Unlike previous seasons why tightly tailored pieces were everywhere, this season is all about variety with both free-flowing oversize styles and fitted forms. Try a pair of big, baggy Wide Leg Pants and on top wear a fitted turtleneck to offset the volume on the bottom, like this Theory "Liza Stay" Puff Sleeve Turtleneck Topicon.
