As winter weather rolls along, I’ve been finding myself standing uninspired in front of my closet more often than not. However, after finally digging into my massive pile of unread magazines, I’ve found some encouragement to rethink how I put my outfits together. And surprisingly, scruffy faced chiseled man-of-men grace the covers, and articles about muscle cars, scotch and video games fill the pages. There’s something so refreshing about clean, no-fuss separates and the low maintenance pairing of corporate wear with sportswear, that, when translated to women’s wear, makes old things new again. For example, I have never ever worn my Thomas Pink shirt buttoned al the way up for fear of looking like a Jil Sander mannequin. But today, I paired it with a crew neck sweater (ALWAYS crew necks if you’re going for menswear—only hipsters wear V necks), a salmon windbreaker and dark skinnies and it somehow worked. But remember, pair your shit with feminine accessories like uberfemme shoes and costume jewelry to avoid the Sir/Madam question.
