Trend: Fashion goes masculine

 
Fashion goes masculine 90 SEE PHOTOS: Mannish jackets and baggy tailored pants were seen at Yves Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney

If pretty dresses with sparkly detailing aren’t really for you, Fall/Winter 12 has ushered in the perfect trend. Mannish tailoring has been doing big business for a while, but this season the shoulders have got even more exaggerated, the fabric thicker and the overall look a total step away from anything too prissy.

Yves Saint Laurent showed this look doesn’t have to be overly masculine, pairing an overcoat with strong shoulders with a waist-cinching belt, while ankle-grazing trousers and pointy courts gave a feminine edge.

Other looks included making a high-necked, long-sleeve top from red leather and pairing a shirt with over-sized shoulders with skin-tight pants.

Giambattista Valli went for a slightly more casual take on the look, switching the harsh tailoring for oversized sweaters in tweed-like fabric.

Both the jumpers and the shirts boasted manly-shaped shoulders, but pairing them with pretty A-line skirts or form-fitting pencil versions kept the look light. Short jackets had the same feel to them, paired with slim trousers for an elegant feel.

Stella McCartney mixed up fabrics and shapes, offering a lot of masculine looks, but in feminine colours such as electric blue or pale pink. One key look saw a model in bold, blue baggy trousers with a matching shirt tucked in. Over the top was a jacket which looked like a man’s tuxedo, with satin labels and shoulders which curved down over the model’s own. The look still suited a woman though, thanks to the electric shade the pieces came in.

To give this a go at home experiment with how far you can go with the masculine look. Curvy girls should aim for a long coat with over-sized shoulders and pair with a tight skirt and belt – like at Yves Saint Laurent.

Fashionistas can go all out – think men’s, loose-fitting trousers, simple shirts tucked in and giant over-sized coats. Funk the look up with statement heels and accessories in neon hues. - COVER MEDIA
