Women in Menswear?

Is unisex clothing the next big trend? Who says granddaddy fashion can't make a comeback? Hopefully when the trend makes it's way to America, it'll come back simple (and not with too much of a vengence.) Simple is great! Belgium designer Bruno Pieters took this 'unisex concept' and ran with it! His Fall 2008 look book is an introduction to androgyny layering tailored jackets and pantsuits with ladies platforms and a touch of masculine flair. I *do* mostly like how he pairs it with oxford platforms (very forward) The other strong like this season is women in dresses and patent leather 'oxford flats' (I ♥ cause it's very London inspired!)

Overall, I feel overall that Bruno's collection, is not a bad look. But definitely not a look for everyone. Take me for instance, I LOVE vintage men's tees, and shopping in men's accessories for scarves and suspenders. (But that's about as far as I'll take it) I also feel that the androgynous 'style' can be a good thing, if worn correctly. One of the 'androgynous' looks I'm feeling currently is a modern take on the "oversized men's blazer." The fact is, there are a lot of ways it can look sloppy, but if worn properly it can transform into something very feminine...

I think the right woman can pull off the adrogenous look! In fact, when I say the "right woman" I mean you. You could even turn heads in garbage sack, lol. Doesn't matter what you wear. Me on the other hand....not happenin..I'm too much of a girly girl lol! Unless of course for a photoshoot :)
