Menswear continues to be a popular style. It’s one of fall’s top trend categories. Its impeccably tailored classic garments and comfy, textural fabrics are undoubtedly enticing. No wonder you gravitate towards them!
The problem is you want to be taken seriously on the job, but still look like a woman and not miss out on the fun of the trend. Gratefully, designers understand the issue and have created some traditionally masculine looks, but each has a feminine twist. See ideas above for fashion-friendly solutions.
Do you find it challenging to appropriately amp up your feminine style at the office? How do you make it work, at work?
