What it feels like for a girl to wear men's clothing (and Comme des Garcons!)

Saturday, October 1, 2011

All Menswear:
Comme Des Garcons Chambray Shirt (you can buy CDG here)
Comme Des Garcons shorts (you can buy CDG here)
Topman belt
Nike sneakers (similar here)
Limited Edition New York Yankees Hat

 Hi all! Hope you've had a great week. It is now the weekend! In NSW though, we have a public holiday this Monday, so technically we have a 3 day weekend! Yay! Thank you all for all your lovely book suggestions, I actually made a list in my diary on all the books I need to buy next. I finished "Summer in the City" and it was excellent. 

To kick start the weekend, I visited one of best friends, Michael, as he needed some new photos for himself. While I was there he suggested I do a post on menswear clothing. I thought this was a good idea, because Michael has fantastic style and, yes, he does bat for the other team. But I didn't want to just snap photos of him, I also wanted to try out some of his clothes.


So he styled me up in some of his favorite items in his wardrobe. I'm wearing Comme des Garcons, some Prada, Nike, and Topman (the mens line from Topshop)- all mens clothing. I also fashioned off his limited edition New York Yankees hat. It was very enlightening experience because I often don't wear very masculine pieces, but now I reckon I can incorporate it into my wardrobe.


Michael wants to ask: who wears it better, Michael or Me?
Now you have to be honest!  :)


Cheers! Have a good weekend everyone!

  1. While I'm not crazy over the menswear/boyfriend thing, you pulled off these looks VERY well. A girl's touch to guys' fashion can be quite magical, and you've proven it beautifully here.

  6. Firstly, I love that people think this is your boyfriend. Secondly, you work the pieces so much better. I think the fact that the denim shirt (which I love and need to have) is tied up makes it look a lot more 'I-just-slept-with-a-guy-and-now-I'm-wearing-his-shirt-ish', but not skanky.

  7. what a shame Micheal doesn't play for the home team, he's so cute! I love the sytle of this look, totally a *walk of shame* but in an unshameful way haha.

  65. You definitely pulled this look off. The only look I'm able to pull off is wearing my guys hoodies, and that's usually just to bed. You are so lucky.
