Men's Silhouettes For Women Is The Trend We're Vying For This Seasonby | February 12, 2020
With tailoring being the reigning mood this season and fashion becoming more gender-fluid, it’s rather easy to signpost the next big trend: men’s silhouettes for women! From Bottega Veneta’s cargo shorts at the Spring/Summer’ 20 runway to Burberry’s khaki three-piece suit, the silhouette found an easy place in women’s prêt-à-porter at the Spring/Summer’ 20 runway and shows signs of only becoming bigger this season.
Thinking about giving those relaxed, airy silhouettes a try? Here are five styles you should start with:
Cuban Collar Shirts
So far, 2020 has been all about comebacks and the Cuban collar or the camp collar happens to be one trend that's back on the map. Close to a condensed notch lapel in style and reminiscent of the Hawaiian shirt, the typical Cuban shirt usually happens to be short-sleeved and is defined by a pointy two-tiered collar. While the style has been seeing a resurgence in men’s fashion for quite some time now, thanks to Prada’s latest collection, the shirt has finally found a place in women’s wardrobes as well. Pair one with a pair of flattering shorts and loafers and you’d be gold this season.
One of the biggest fashion trends currently, the vest had a major fashion moment at the Spring/Summer '20 runway, effectively catalyzed by Celine's chic offerings and a few more serious ones by Gucci and Burberry. The three-piece and, more importantly, the vest has made a swift transition from men's wardrobes to that of women and we, for one, aren't complaining at all!
Oversized blazer or dad blazers have been around for quite some time now and if we were to go by its latest rendition seen at Victoria Beckham, Jacquemus, and more, the style is here to stay. From heavy-duty navy picks to bright and playful hues like candy pink, yellow, etc. there are just so many fun ways to don an oversized blazer right now.
The suit has been assuming many shapes, styles, and silhouettes, and shorts suits are our favourite iteration yet. Take the most laidback pair of shorts, pair them with a statement jacket and there are fewer things more sophisticated than the ensemble. While the runways last year saw a more chic, cropped version of the ensemble, the entry of over-the-knee shorts has re-defined the attire for Spring this year, and we have Givenchy and Bottega Veneta to thank for that.
Just in case you were planning to pair your oversized blazers with something more flattering and constrained, here's an advice: don't! The right and also the most trendy way to style a blazer or a vest right now is to pair it with relaxed trousers.
