FARFETCH: STYLE REINVENTION


Shopping from the menswear section is probably something that you would never consider doing but it can actually be a great opportunity to reinvent your look. 

I personally love experimenting with menswear inspired looks, so when the online fashion site FARFETCH, home to over 300 fashion boutiques, challenged me to style a feminine outfit using only clothing items from their MENSWEAR category, I couldn't resist, especially when I could potentially win a £250 voucher to spend on Farfetch.com!

To say I "fell in love" with this ribbed panel turtleneck sweater by J.W Anderson would be an understatement, the mixture of fabric textures in this sweater had my attention straight away, I thought it would look great layered over the pleated shorts by Givenchy which I envision to have an oversized look on a woman. The classic bomber jacket has had its own reinvention by Dsquared with this sick zipper detail and is the perfect piece to complement this tomboyish look.

I couldn't decide between the Givenchy clutch bag or Saint Laurent backpack. I was drawn to the gold numbering print on the clutch and theres that zipper detail again on the backpack that would look so good with the bomber jacket. Its so hard to choose! I pick both, its a wishlist after all! 
Accessories are always a must and us women can rock a bold face watch and a pair of mirrored sunglasses just as well, if not better than, any man! I'm obsessed with this fluffy bag charm too and I think by now, from my blog, that you guys know no look is complete without a wide brim hat!

I was allowed to pick one clothing item from the womenswear section to complete the look, well I chose these amazing patchwork thigh high boots by Burberry, to be worn under the shorts to inject some vibrant colour into the outfits monochromatic palette and put the sexy back! - hell-to-the-yeah!

Menswear doesn't have to be exclusive just to men, challenge yourself and reinvent your style. Why should men get all the fun?! 

Seriously wish this outfit existed in my wardrobe, its "me" all over! Let me know what you think!

  5. That jacket ans sweater are gorgeous ! I really need to look at the men's section more. The only problem is the sizing sometimes is already too big for a "small". I hope you win the competition though !

  9. I think wearing menswear is cool, but unfortunately something I haven't tried to incorporate into my style yet. This post is great as it shows how easily I could do that - and how good it looks. Thanks for sharing.

  11. This is a really cool statement look, I like it. I've borrowed shirts off my boyfriend before and I like how us women can mix it up so easily.

    I want that Dsquared bomber jacket!
