I don’t know what it is, but every winter when the couture shows are in full force, the fashion set pulls out their best menswear ensembles and leaves me looking thru street style photos with my mouth wide open. This happened last January as well and fueled inspiration for my trip to the shows in NY that season. It must have something to do with the Pitti Uomo menswear shows that are happening simultaneously, the ladies just want to be one of the boys. Obsessed doesn’t begin to explain how much I love this style of layering textures, patterns, fabrics, jackets, ties, pins, handkerchiefs, vests, capes and hats. Oh my!!! There is magic to this type of dressing for a woman and it requires a keen eye for detail and styling. Not just anybody can pull this look off. As you will see in some of Tommy Ton’s photos below, a few ladies choose to wear a version of this look everyday and have made it their signature style. The Japanese girl with the short hair, well she just kills it. Take a look and I hope these ladies inspire you to raid your boyfriend’s closet!
