Wish List Wednesday: Menswear Inspired

September 17, 2014

Menswear for women

I’ve been feeling a bit fickle about fashion lately. Last month I was wishing for feminine florals. And now? Bring on the menswear trend. See ya sweet pieces, hello structured sexiness!

Perhaps it’s the upcoming change in seasons that has me so back-and-forth with my wish lists, but that’s the beauty of fashion. A chiffon dress one day, a boyfriend blazer the next. Menswear is all about adding tailored, masculine pieces to the mix, which couldn’t be more perfect for the fall.

For women to successfully pull off the menswear trend, I offer one piece of advice: it’s all about balance. To keep from looking like a total manly man, add a hint of femininity with your lipstick, jewelry, or hairstyle. Here are a few menswear-inspired pieces that this tomboy has her eye on.

JCrew Factory | Style Me Thrifty

If you could only wear one brand for the next year, what brand would you choose? At age 24, I probably would have said Forever 21 (I was obsessed). Age 28, I’m sure it was Express. I still love both brands, but at my stylish old age of 32, it’s a total no brainer: J.Crew Factory. I could close my eyes and point at something on their website, and there would be a 100% chance I’d love it. The colors, the classic shapes, the whimsical jewelry. Love, love, love!

The other reason I’m all about J.Crew Factory? Because I can’t always afford J.Crew! Their Factory clothing is the perfect way of wearing J.Crew-esque pieces, without the hefty price tag. Plus, Factory is always running sales (currently it’s up to 50% off everything).

I hope to get one more wear out of the nautical dress this fall, perhaps with a jean jacket and booties instead. What brands are you currently loving?

Wish List Wednesday: Warehouse Brand

September 10, 2014

When it comes to online shopping, sometimes I’m convinced I’ve hit the end of the internet. No more new clothing brands to discover. No more results. It’s just the same brands and the same expected pieces.

Since the shopping gods don’t want me to lose my faith in online shopping, they know exactly how to reel me back in. With a cool clothing brand I’ve never heard of before! How is this possible? I’ve explored the entire internet!

Meet Warehouse. A UK-based retailer featuring on-trend pieces, classic staples, and doable prices. Have you heard of them before? I’d like all 10 of these items, pretty please. (All of which are available on ASOS website, which means free shipping both ways!)
