Suit Up! Menswear-Inspired Looks for the Boss in You!
Androgynous fashion has made its mark in 2022. From mens in skirts to sweatshirt suit-wear on the runway, mixing up prescribed gendered fashion is as much all the rage as it is a necessary shift towards the future. The line between women and men’s clothing blurs more each day, and changing styles all seem to point to a less statically divided world of fashion.
As we prepare to enter the new year, suited ensembles and menswear-inspired styles lead the way with classic silhouettes that encompass both men and women’s fashion. From staple trousers to longline blazers, menswear lends its structured self-assuredness to XCVI’s go-to feminine styles, so you can dress like you’re truly the CEO of everything.
Boss moves only! We reimagined a two-piece suit with casual touches and elegance. With a longline silhouette, curved seaming, and a single button in our softest Peachskin Tencel, the Enola Jacket rethinks what a blazer should look like. A darted double lapel and angular shoulders keep the formality of your classic blazer, while curve-conforming rib inserts ensure maximum flattering impact for a piece of outerwear that truly encompasses the best of both worlds. Pale gray Soft Pebble Pigment lightens up the average suit color, making the look fitting for all seasons and circumstances.
Pair Enola with a unique bottom like the cropped wide-leg Corbyn Pant. With a pull on waist, flared legs, raw-edge seaming, and capri fit, Corbyn reimagines your run-of-the-mill work trouser, bringing softness and some free-flowing attitude to the stuffiness suits often give. Worn as separates or on their own, Enola and Corbyn beautifully rethink what suiting up really looks like. Pair with a feminine and fluttery blouse underneath for some added contrast, or try some shoes in a complementary color like blue or camel brown leather—plus some chunky necklaces and rings to really take it to the next bossy level!
For a more laid-back menswear-inspired look, try a roomy button-down like the crepe Amos Blouse. With a slightly boxy fit, dropped-shoulder billowy short sleeves, and a classic collar, Amos feels like a cross between a Hawaiian shirt and oversized work blouse–the perfect combo! Natural rayon crepe ensures a softly draped fit, while mid-blue Pirouette Pigment welcomes some versatile color into the mix. Pair with just about any trouser for a work and lounge-appropriate look, or give the 4-Pocket Foldover Pant a try! With a wide stretch waistband, the 4-Pocket hugs you in gently and comfortably, while a tapered and slightly flared silhouette looks modern and fresh in plush stretch poplin. In creamy green-tinged Deep Sage, the 4-Pocket feels like an elevated, unexpected neutral that pairs neatly with blazers and sweatshirts alike. Try out Amos and the 4-Pocket Foldover Pant with some loafers and dainty jewelry, and you’ve got a look that nails the elevator pitch and that Monday meeting!
Whether you opt for a softened suited look or a more casual approach to wearing a button-down and trousers, XCVI Resort 2022 has you covered with looks that encompass the best of both worlds. Take your relaxed, menswear-inspired looks out for a big day in the office and out for a walk on the beach after. No matter where you go, stay bossy and stay stylish!
