Trending: Genderbending

I’ve always been a fan of dabbling in womenswear, and I’m loving that now I basically don’t have to.  Stemming from my post on Pulling off a Fashion-Forward Look, Effortlessly – since androgynous pieces can lend to being a tad forward themselves – tastefully wearing gender-bending pieces, too, is about balance.  Although now more than ever – who cares?  There are no rules in fashion!

Dueling an effortless bohemian and almost Aztec feel is this rag & bone Ines Poncho that I layered over an Oak Men’s Torque Tee in Dusk.  Ladies, you can achieve a similar look with an Oak Drop Shoulder Tee in Dusk or any of the other Oak Tees and Tanks.  I’m in love with their collection!  Want more poncho options?  Check out some of these mega-luxe Acne Studios wool ponchos in caramel, grey, and black.  Finally, I paired it with my Balenciaga flared khaki pants, John Varvatos Suede Fleetwood Chelsea Boots, and my Saint Laurent Classic Museum Bag.  Is suede too much maintenance?  Consider these really cool Premiata Distressed Ankle Boots.  You girls can apply the same ankle boot concept with these Jimmy Choo, Vince, and Gianvito Rossi booties or try this fun Aquazzura Sandal.  The female version of my bag is the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour and, depending on what shoe you choose, the classic black, a beautiful oxblood red, or a cool camo pattern would be great matchings.

Because I’m a 70’s child at heart, I’ve always loved flared and wide leg pants regardless of the trend or not.  Guys, flares and wide leg pants are making a comeback, yet always seem to be more prominent in the European market.  If you like the look, check out these Gucci Flared Jeans.  If not, you can always pair these pieces back to a relaxed leg or skinny leg jean.  Ladies, I’m OBSESSING over these Rachel Zoe Gigi Suede Flare Pants!  You can also go more casual with flared white denim from Acne Studios or a classic dark denim from 7 For All Mankind.
