Greetings one and all, I do certainly apologize for the delay in getting this post off- the- ground here in South Florida. I have been working on several new projects that demand my time so it has not been easy and for the Holidays I will go down to just a Saturday post! I hope that there are so many people reading this that is will actually be missed! Again, I thank you for your patience and dedication to reading and contributing to this blog post!
Today we are going to talk about fashion changing for the men and women and how it has sorta become a non- gender specific trend that is in the forefront these days! For quite a few years women have really embraced the “boyfriend jeans,” the boyfriend dress shirts, and almost anything in between including the modification of underwear that actually look like your better half’s… I believe it has been a much slower turnover for the menswear to take on let’s call it …. less gender-specific pieces! For various and numerous reasons this is just one of the so- called stories in fashion today. Please feel free to jump in and start some commenting on the bottom of this blog under comments, once one person comments it will show a feed so you can see what everyone is writing.
Come on, I know that you all can do this and get the conversation rolling. You all tend to be outspoken people and that I LOVE! I have to make mention of an article published by VOGUE ,not too long ago, whereby they took some heat for the way that they dealt with gender identity and the wording they miss used the wording while categorizing a certain type of gender identity within the scope of the article. Gigi Hadid and her “boyfriend steady,” Zayn were on the cover and were interviewed about how they borrowed clothing from each other’s closets and how men are way more comfortable these days wearing things they love instead of following the societal norms.
I in NO way want to get into a political argument here. I am merely talking about how women are hitting the boyfriend trend in a big way and that the boyfriend jackets are really hhot! The boyfriend blazer adorned with famous artist painting are extremely popular and stunning to look at as well. Hey, what the HELL, it’s a great conversation piece if you happen to be going to one of those boring parties this season – A BIT OF ADVICE, WEAR THE BOYFRIEND BLAZER WITH ARTW0RK – you will at least be able to have one conversation! For this article, I am showing you a couple of my favorite go- to boyfriend pieces that can be either dressed up or worn running errands etc… The wearable art blazer that I am wearing is from the DeBilzan Gallery in Delray Beach which can be found on Instagram same! If you get a chance to stop there you will see some amazing art work that he is now putting on clothing, travel pieces, and much much more. If you are really nice to him he may even customize a jacket to your liking! Bring your checkbook, well worth the money spent! Just for mention, I see men carrying “man bags” if you will and I am ever so happy to see this and you want to know why…..? I will tell you why, I want to go bag free and dump all my things I need in his bag and let him carry a huge mother around like I do so all the kids, friends, husbands can all load it before I even leave the house and then no one wants to carry the heavy thing around. HA
There are several other men’s fashion trends that are so nice and refreshing! I also think that is is truly fantastic that men are not feeling emasculated by wearing certain types of clothing. Fashion is suppose to be fun. It is, and always has been, a favorite pastime of mine and it’s nice to see men enjoying it as well. I see the that the suits are definitely more fitted and the pant legs are tapered more much more than just on suits, a lot of the jean companies have at least one style if not more that is slimming toward the ankle. I was wondering if we would ever see this happen and thank the fashion gods that it did! Nothing better than a good-looking man in a suit that shows his shape off a little. I mean hey, men like women in more fitted clothing more often than not, so now it’s our time LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, to admire men in some nice fitted clothing.
Cheers to the changes in fashion! Embrace the changes as some will stay forever while others are fleeting. It’s all in good fun, not to take too seriously at times! As I’ve said before, I love fashion because you can change your mood without changing who you are. The other part of that is that your clothing and your energy speak for you long before you even open your mouth to say – say something!!!
Have a great week and I will attempt to have another blog out on Tuesday, if not it will be Saturday, for sure…. And this is one that you do not want to miss!
Thanks for the read!
