From high fashion to street fashion, women everywhere are incorporating masculine pieces into their style. Whether you’re keeping your wardrobe up to date with the latest trends or opting for a low maintenance look, it’s easy and fun to incorporate both masculine and feminine pieces into your outfits at the same time.
Start with the Basic Accessories
While men usually wear basic accessories, the few key pieces they do wear are timeless. Look to designer watches with a sporty or sophisticated band. Don a flattering fedora or cabbie hat atop your head for an immediately masculine touch. You can even go all-out with a tie to pair with a casual ensemble or men’s suit. Do you prefer a more youthful look? Look to functional backpacks and beanies to take you from day to night.
Try Getting a Few Mens Cardigans or Jackets
The simplest way to get a more masculine look is in your outfit. But, what makes menswear so different from woman’s typical fashion? Menswear is often interested in the function, fit, and cut of the garment as opposed to the embellishment. If women want to incorporate a masculine look into their outfits, they need to choose practical pieces. Look to boxy jackets (either oversized or sized correctly by looking for extra small sizes) or baggy and warm cardigans.
If you’re looking for masculine pieces, you can also try men’s pants that are particularly small or can be cinched at the waist. Careful use of one of these pieces can immediately give you a more streamlined, masculine silhouette. Menswear is considered best when it focuses on fit, function, and practicality.
Look into Some Beauty Changes
Whether your hair is long or short, you can still get a tomboy look. Longer hair can be pulled into a low ponytail or tucked underneath if you’re not ready to go short. Shorter hair is increasing in popularity, and many women find it easier to take care of. Popular short haircuts include the center-parted short bob and the bowl crop. Consider going light on makeup (mascara and lip balm), or opt for no makeup at all for an effortless look. You can also emphasize a strong brow or deep cheekbones for a more masculine makeup look.
Make Masculinity Your Own
Celebrities and fashion enthusiasts alike love the carefree look of the tomboy style. You may choose to start simple or go dramatic with your look. Some even find adding simple changes like slightly higher soles in your shoes, or other confidence boosting additions can make women feel more masculine. No matter how you incorporate masculinity into your style, have fun and play around with different ideas to find a feature that feels right.
