The Traveling Black Dress: Menswear Edition

Let your LBD borrow from the boys.

It's time to borrow from the boys with my LBD.

Famous women such as Marlene Dietrich, Diane Keaton, Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn and most notably Coco Chanel have glamorized the menswear look for decades.

The Fall 2015 runways were loaded with menswear-inspired pieces including pinstripes, blazers, oxfords and slouchy pants. The red carpet this season also included actresses in perfectly tailored suits and so-called "tuxedo gowns." 

For work, play or evening you can effortlessly blend feminine glamour with a tailored look.

Instead of this workman's blue shirt and tie, you could wear a crisp white shirt and scarf or a pinstriped shirt and bold necklace to achieve the same look.

The menswear or tomboy twist.

Need more inspiration? This look has gone from Hollywood to the catwalks to mainstream.
