Menswear line Bonobos just came out with their Fall suit collection, and gave me the fun task to take some of their pieces to style for women. I love adding a men’s piece to an outfit — big watches, oversized button-ups…I may even be guilty of wearing cologne sometimes (what? NO ONE has heard of Burberry Touch?). Anyway, thought it might be fun to try something out of the norm here and see what I could come up with.
First, floral pants adds a feminine twist to a formal tuxedo blazer. Throw in a fun nailpolish shade to brighten up dull days:
Bonobos Tuxedo Blazer (new!), $460 (similar here) / Zara linen t-shirt, $19.90 / Anthropologie Neoprene floral pants, $138 / Zara Leather Court Shoes, $99.90 / Gigi New York White Uber Clutch, $145 / Essie nailpolish in I’m Addicted, $8 / ShahThreads Hamsa necklace, $20
I love simple streamlined looks so I paired this plaid navy/green blazer with a plain jersey top and skinny jeans. The blue strappy heels play off the blue in the blazer and the look is finished with turned up lips (Ruby Woo is my favorite red):
Bonobos Capstone Slim Tuxedo Blazer, $695 / Splendid Very Light Jersey Tee, $48 / J. Brand Low-Rise Skinny Leg, $218 / Ray-Ban Flash Lenses, $170 / BCBG Harlow Envelope Clutch, $88 / Pierre Hardy Mucha Kid Suede Pumps, $423 / Bauble Bar Zodiac Constellation Pendant Necklace, $38 / M.A.C. Lipstick in Ruby Woo, $19
I had a little more fun with their gray tweed blazer, matching it with black tweed shorts (add black tights on cooler days), and a grungy heel to toughen it up. A statement necklace like the one from Dannijo pulls it together:
Bonobos Nottingham Tweed Blazer, $398 / Madewell Silk Spotlight Shirt in Deep Plaid, $118 / Rag & Bone Em Speckled Tweed Shorts, $350 / Dannijo Lilith necklace, $488 / Rag & Bone Classic Newbury Leather Ankle Boots, $525
