I place no claim on an expertise of women’s fashion — men’s either for that matter — but I feel that I have a certain understanding of style. I know the business of coordinating a look, have a solid grasp on color, fit and texture. When it comes to women’s fashion I know what I like and what I think looks good. However, describing that style is something altogether different, and usually difficult.
However, last fall I started to take notice women around my SoHo office wearing menswear inspired clothing in a cute androgynous sort of way. I thought to myself, finally a women’s trend I can appreciate. And the good news is, the look continues to appear this fall. The ladies at the Vancouver boutique Lark have it down to a science, as does Hollister Hovey and Boy by Band of Outsiders. Men’s inspired women’s clothing with the perfect amount of femininity.
