"MAN UP!!!!!"

There's that saying, "What a man can do A woman can do just as well, if not better",... and I guess the same definitely goes with wearing Men's Fashion...  Because women have proven that they can make their boyfriends jeans or collared shirts look sexier than he could ever make it look ( though a well dressed guy is sexy as heck ;-). Hence this taking a life of its own and becoming an ever growing trend.  The movie Annie Hall wtith Diane Keaton made this trend popular back in the 70's ....and Diane Keaton seemed to have permanently adopted her Annie Hall's characters fashion style. This androgynous trend is taking over runways and streets all over the world...
I think this trend works and is catching on more because it is soo comfortable... what is more comfortable than coming home throwing on those comfortable baggy sweats and a comfy tee?... Now imagine if you can just throw on some heels/booties and a dope leather jacket and walk out of your house....AMAZINNGGGG RIGHT??? my point exactly .!!!! ...Also, remember in Pretty woman when she threw on  Richard's office shirt over her mini dress and was walking down rodeo?...I know I wasn't then only one that thought that was actually a dope fashionable moment ( despite what the snobby sales ladies thought hehe)....well NOW the fashion gods have declared this trend acceptable and added it on to the fashion commandments Hence the guys in our lives missing a couple of denims, button down tops, blazers, shorts, even boxer briefs.. *bwaahhhhaa*....we are soo #winning right now.... Even Down to the shoes... the men's oxfords, brogues and loafers completes the whole menswear /androgynous look/..... MEN BEWARE!!!!! ....HIDE YOUR SHIRTS, HIDE YOUR DENIM, HIDE YOUR SHOES, HIDE YOUR PANTS, HIDE YOUR JACKETS/BLAZERS.....CAUSE WE ROBBING Y'ALLS WARDROBE OUT HERE *Antoinedodsonvoice* hehee ( yes yes I'm ashamed of myself for even quoting that, but very fitting right? haha)

  1. True. Seeing it more and more in Boston. Great Post!

  2. Great post. I just wish there were more black and hispanic girls into this sort of look and getting press so that other young girls can see that they don't have to look always to their white counterparts. I know I definitely felt that way when I was growing up -- that I didn't have anyone like me in fashion that I could identify with. I am thankful for the few that you've shared in your post but I wish there were many.


  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I'm going to try this out with what I already have in my closet, but a new pair of those cute loafers would be nice! ;)
