Gretta's Got It: Menswear
If you are looking to step out in style, why not borrow something from your man? One of the hottest looks is menswear, and 7's Gretta Monahan shows you how to wear the trend in "Gretta's Got It."
WSVN -- OK, we've all heard that what a man can do, a woman can do better. This season, that goes for their clothes!
Fashionistas like Charlize, Lindsay, Paris and others are suiting up in menswear. From jackets and ties, to shirts, slacks and sweaters, anything goes.
But the trick to stealing his style is mixing masculine cuts with feminine lines.
And what's great, you can grab some of these hot looks from his closet.
Every guy has a tie, which is where this look begins. To really tie one on, wear them loose. This will make it super feminine.
But the tie isn't just for the neck. Belt it!
Wrap it around an oversized shirt to pull a look together or loop it through your favorite jeans. This will add color and fun.
Pair a feminine frilly top with a men's vest, and you've got the look.
Cinch the back to bring your sexy back.
And the look isn't complete without an oversized cardigan; one just like your grandpa would wear.
But Grandpa never wore it like this -- layer the look with a sexy cami and don't forget to layer your tanks and tees.
This look is all over the runway, and it's in his closet.
Men's trousers are tough to wear with most women's bodies, so choose a pant in a fabric that's men-inspired, like tweed or pinstriped.
So I guess it's nice to see who still wears the pants in fashion.
