Let’s get one thing straight – It is a known fact that men can’t do what we women do in so many ways! One of the perks in being a woman is versatility in fashion. Unlike men, we have the ability to dib and dab into both womenswear AND menswear without losing our femininity. What started as us ladies borrowing our man’s sweats solely for loungewear has now transformed into one of Fall’s hottest trends! Celebs like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Rihanna constantly cross the gender line when it comes to fashion! Even designer collections such as Yeezy and Off White have created unisex looks using menswear pieces.
Still think that these “frumpy frocks” are not for us? Let EGL convince you otherwise! We can show you a few ways to turn “Men to Fem” and have men questioning if it was ever menswear to begin with!
H&M Men’s Shirt, $19.99
Lower Left: Opening Ceremony Shirt Dress, $395
Lower Right: Asos Weekday Shirt Dress, $39
Shoedazzle Heels, $42.90
Dolce & Gabanna Tote, $ 2,275
Janessa Leone Fedora, $185
The oversized shirt dress is definitely in this season, so what better way to flaunt it than to snag one from the men! The good thing about theirs is that the length and sleeves are longer so you can wear the shirt multiple ways. You will never get bored with a classic men’s button up. Want to see how? Just watch and see…
Ways to Transform the Men’s Classic Shirt

As Karl Lagerfeld said, “I want everyone to wear what they want and mix it in their own way. That, to me, is what is modern”. So Ladies, don’t be afraid to make menswear work for you.
