You Don't Need A Boyfriend To Wear A Menswear Shirt And Look Cool Doing It

March 8, 2010 by Marisa Siegel
shefinds | Style

Menswear style shirts were all over the Fall 2010 runways of famous designers like Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan, but why wait till fall to test out this classic look?  The tricky part about the menswear trend is to not come off looking manly. Worn the right way, they can look feminine and sexy–if it’s too buttoned up, you look uptight and boxy. Here, we’ve put together four unique ways to pull of one simple menswear blouse:

The Shirt

This menswear blouse by Splendid ($88) is just the right length to be tucked in or to be worn loose.  Here we’ll show you how to make it work for nearly every occasion.


Weekend Casual

An oversized men’s button-down is perfect to pair with leggings and leather riding boots.  Make sure the blouse covers most of your bum if you opt for second skin leggings like these by Aqua ($48), or go for skinny jeans that can easily be tucked into equestrian style boots, like these by Frye ($298).


Feminine Florals

You don’t need to overcompensate with feminine accessories to make menswear look flirty and girly.  Simply pair the top with a floral print, like this elastic band mini by Free People ($58).


Nautical

Diane Keaton in Annie Hall proved that menswear can be ultra chic and sexy on all women.  Get a modern take on her look by pairing the blouse with a tailored blazer by Smythe ($330) and high-waisted khaki shorts from See by Chloé ($225).


Dressed-Up Layers

If the weather isn’t quite as cheery as your latest tank dress, throw your button down blouse on over it to stay warm and look cool.  Try this dress by Johnny Was ($121.80) and create more shape with a thin belt around your waist, like this one from Delia’s ($9.99).
