How You Can Incorporate Menswear Into Your Womenswear

With gender-neutral fashion and the oversized fit trend on the rise, there’s no better time to try incorporating some men’s clothing pieces into your daily closet. Though this look may seem out of many people's comfort zones the key is starting off simple. Check out some of the style tips down below and give one of these statement pieces a try! 

Flannels

They’re extremely versatile pieces whether you layer it under a denim jacket, tie it around your waist or pair it over a tube top, and can be worn during nearly any season. Flannels also make for great thrifting pieces and are most often pretty available and easy to find. 

Swim Trunks

Swim trunk bottoms with a bikini top is a unique and sporty way to play with gender-neutral clothing and a great choice for your next beach day. 

Suits

Chunky Sneakers

Formally known as the “dad” sneakers brands such as Fila, Balenciaga, Adidas, and Nike have all adapted this look and geared it towards women’s wear. The style pairs well with your favorite sundress, a sweater and jeans, skirts, or even a blazer and straight-leg pants. 

Oversized Shirts

I often go to some of my favorite retail stores and make a mad dash toward the men's T-shirt sections. You can usually find comfortable band tees or even just plain ones to wear over bike shorts or even wrap a chunky belt around one and wear it as a mini dress. The same styling tips work for oversized button-down tops as well.
