The Fall Trend Report II: Menswear
Menswear is the new black. For you and him. For both, for everyone.
As an innovative style blogger Yasmine utilized this editorial as a means to shed light on an underlying theme in contemporary fashion, which is the overlapping of womenswear and menswear. Increasingly, women are shopping in the men's section and men are shopping in the women's section.
*All the clothes Yasmine is wearing in this report are from the men's section; unless indicated.
Trend 1: Rebirth
Yasmine's notes: Paying homage to the rebirth of Fila; an iconic sportswear label. This trend emphasizes athleisure as a gender neutral way of dressing. Long socks paired with pastel colored athletic wear make it an effortlessly cool look. I'm wearing blue and Hassan is in Pink, a play on gender stereotypes using color.
Trend 2: About My Business
Yasmine's notes: I'm wearing a double breasted very masculine suit jacket, committed work attire, paired with different striped pants. Hassan is dressed in brown and camel tones, styling a single breasted suit jacket with a turtleneck for a more casual take on a suit. Looking androgynous is a trend at the moment; hence the female in a suit and tie. As for men, be adventurous and pair different pieces of a suit with alternate tops and bottoms.
Trend 3: 70's Revival
Yasmine's notes: 70's fashion and the color orange are major menswear trends at the moment. Hassan is wearing corduroy pants, and mine are plaid. I recreated my look from a menswear catalogue. Hassan's look speaks to the more minimal dressing male, to draw inspiration for an everyday classic and clean look.
Trend 4: Revolution
Yasmine's notes: Hassan's look features several layers; a pullover, a flannel and a quilted jacket. I wore a fanny pack, military inspired pants, and a shirt that featured a political statement. Dark greens and earth tones, give both looks an edgy and rebellious feel.
Trend 5: Blow Up
Yasmine's notes: Puffer jackets are extremely trendy at the moment in Menswear; you can dress them up or down depending on the look. Khaki pants and mustard yellows are both colors that are on trend and go well with winter tones.
Trend 6: Saturday Night Live
Yasmine's notes: This is a classic look for a night out. The color red is one of the most prominent trends this winter in both men and women's clothing. Paring a turtleneck with jeans, a textured jacket, and a patterned scarf is an effective method of layering for menswear.

This Menswear report showcases that all colors, cuts, and materials work for both genders, and that fashion has taken huge strides since the 1920's where women were dressed in nothing but knee-length dresses and men never left a neatly fit matching suit.
We hope this inspires your fall/winter attire to be both trendy, and maybe even a little gender neautral.
