Fashion Forward: Menswear For Women
Remember the days of playing dress up in your parent's clothing? Well this time, Seven's Shireen Sandoval says head back to dad's closet because menswear for women is what's Fashion Forward for fall.
(WSVN) -- It looked classic and sharp on the fall runways.
From Ralph Lauren to Calvin Klein, menswear for women is hot this season.
From a crisp white shirt... to serious suits... to pinstripes...
No, not that kind... ladies, this season we're wearing the pants in the family.
Melissa Goff of Burdines says, "The biggest trend you'll find in women's fashion right now, is the suit."
At Burdines, it's easy to look like a sharp dressed "woman".
Try a traditional pinstriped suit...
Or bare your belly in this sexy version of the three-piece kind.
It's all about close to the body fitting and a sexy tailored look.
Add that feminine touch, by pairing up your suit with another hot trend,
Or wear it with a turtleneck instead.
Melissa says, "Instead of going for the blouse, wear the vest without the blouse or without a top underneath.
Boy meets girl at trendy dots.
Here it's about value and the latest style.
"What do you think it is about mens clothing that women have to have?"
"It's a sense of confidence they get when they wear pants with pinstripes. I think it's all about looking sexy and pretty, but at the same time having that flair of confidence."
And you can definitely look sexy here.
Match a traditional gray suit with a printed top.
Or tie on a tie for that girl interrupted look.
"What's a good tip about wearing a menslook without kind of overdoing it. I think stay basic with the bottoms and probably do constructive jackets or you'll see in a moment we have certain tops layered over with a vest."
Top off the look with a hat, and ladies you are good to go.
"Don't I look just like a man? She's a man baby."
