Happy Friday everyone!  Same exact plaid coat, two ways, his and hers today!

:: Styling Menswear for Womenswear ::

I actually love styling menswear for womenswear.  While some pieces work extremely well, others are a little more difficult.  In my humble opinion, relaxed coats and button-up shirts are very easy to work with.  For example, this plaid coat.  With its relaxed shoulders, which I think is key, it drapes beautifully on a woman’s frame.  For sizing reference, Colin is 6’2 and typically wears a Medium.  I’m 5’0 (5’4 on a good day!) and an XS.  We’re both wearing the same coat in a mens’ Medium.

For a borrowed-from-the-boys (literally in this case) vibe but with a feminine feel, I added a wide patent belt and statement earrings to the look.  And keeping the rest of the look streamlined, I wore my favorite cashmere turtleneck (under $80) and black jeans (under $70) under.  I went to a girls’ dinner the other night with this outfit and felt like a character from the show Peaky Blinders!  It’s the coat-hat combo!

This is another Best of Budget Under $150 post (previous posts here & here).  Every piece on me with the exception of the bag and boots are under $150.  I hope you enjoyed the styling tips and photo-story!  Don’t be afraid to look in your boyfriend, guy friend, brother, father, that-cool-guy-in-your-life’s wardrobe.  And moreover, take a peek at the men’s section when you’re shopping online or in-store.

Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
