Borrowed From The Boys for Fall 2015

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Aug 27, 2015 12:35:00 PM
Costello Tagliapietra fashion show

Menswear has always been about classic fabrics like wool and patterns such as plaids and stripes. This fall a lot of international designers are reflecting the male suiting structure into their runway looks. Take, for instance, the design duo of Costello Tagliapietra, whose models strutted their stuff on the catwalks of NYC last February wearing some extraordinary ensembles featuring buttoned-up and toned-down “borrowed-from-the-boys” garments.

I really like the feminine detail at the collar that softens up the more masculine elements of this look!

The wine-colored long-sleeved button down still has the inkling of femininity at the neckline.The scarf is a nice contrast to the color of the blouse and adds even more texture. The gray/blue of the suspenders is a great foil to the tones of burgundy wine in the blouse as well. Take note of the menswear shoes here! I often see great men’s shoes at Goodwill by famous names that are way too small for me, but would most likely fit a woman … so, ladies, make sure to check out the men’s shoe area next time you shop Goodwill!

You can see more fabulous looks from these talented designers in the slideshow below. While these looks may not be your cup of tea, they are fodder for thought and inspiration for your own menswear journey this fall. You never know what kind of shopping journey you’ll find at Goodwill, but one thing you can be sure of is our commitment to serving the community, while simultaneously offering stylish fashion choices that won’t break your budget!

    A quilted box-vest worn with pleated slacks are the foundation for this look, which included menswear- inspired oxford shoes as well. Take note of the use of plaid in the blouse. This is more of a windowpane pattern than a traditional plaid. I also like the way they’ve added a scarf at the neckline, while still keeping the feeling of being very structured. The gray slacks and vest have a rich feeling, as well as a subtle undertone of green.

    Next, we have a three-piece look of a vest, slacks and jacket. But, the difference here is the cut of the jacket and the floppy lapel, which gives it a feminine softness and comes across as a bit of a surprise! Once again, the large-scale plaid offsets the more somber tones of the rest of the look.The flared leg is slowly making its way back into fashion after so many years of the skin-tight and straight-legged look.

    Pleated slacks with more of a straight leg are shown on the model here. Suspenders set if all off and add the all-important detail to this look. The wine-colored long-sleeved button down still has the inkling of femininity at the neckline. The scarf is a nice contrast to the color of the blouse and adds even more texture. The gray/blue of the suspenders is a great foil to the tones of burgundy wine in the blouse as well.

    Taking us full spectrum, the designers also give us a full-cut pair of slacks and a wrap jacket which is reminiscent of the 1930s. Both structured and feminine, it captures a powerful look, while having a free- flowing movement as well. The contrasting sash of plaid which ties in at the waist follows the fluidity of the slacks, in addition to defining the waistline.
