So the lovely Alana is on vacation in Costa Rica (lucky girl) and asked me to guest post. At first I was apprehensive because I mostly focus on menswear on my blog, danchiz.com. But then, I realized I can use my menswear knowledge to my advantage! Let's create a menswear-inspired outfit! I had an specific outfit in mind based on trends and voila, I found the exact look that you see above!
And now for the explanation (Sorry I ramble too much). So, one of the biggest trends this spring is colored denim. You want the denim to be super bright and pop. You want people to pass you on the street and think, "damn, that's a hot color on a hot girl." The best color for that is coral. It gives that huge pop of color yet it can go with many other pieces. It will go far for the season.
For guys, you can't ever go wrong with a chambray shirt. It can be dressed up or down. It's a versatile piece that every man should own, wear and love. Why shouldn't women have that same piece? I would opt for an oversize shirt for women to give it a fun, messy look. Tuck in the front of the shirt and leave the back hanging out--put together in the front with a party in the back!
I figured not many women would like to wear a tie and bib necklaces are super chic. So throw that bling around your neck and flaunt that gold.
And you can't complete an outfit without shoes. To really go for the complete menswear-inspired look, opt for buck shoes. Try for colored sole; to give it a feminine touch, pink always does the trick.
