While women are still fighting for full equality in the workplace and at home, one male realm has been successfully conquered—their wardrobe. These days, it’s normal, if not 100 percent expected, to see ladies decked out in loose jeans and button-downs, items originally meant only for the dudes of the world. In fact, it’s one of the few arenas in which women are actually better off than men, given how much flack guys still receive for trying out any effeminate trends.
That may be about to change, if a recent menswear review by The Guardian is to be believed. After spotting numerous looks at the Fall 2015 runway shows that were stolen straight from the girls, they have deemed the trend "girlfriend dressing" and are certain it’s going to be big this year. So, is it time for us to let the boys raid our closets?
Torn? Weigh the evidence with the six biggest trends below!
Designer Tomas Maier accessorized his models with full-on lady bags in bright colors, like the purple one seen here.
At Lanvin, men walked the runway in sumptuous suede pieces that any Celine-fan would love, all topped off with delicate gold jewelry.
Designer Hedi Slimane sent his models down the runway in sheer, tie-neck blouses and heeled booties at Saint Laurent.
Silk scarves have recently had a major resurgence with women, and the trend seems to have caught on with the men at Paul Smith.
At Maison Margiela the looks took a '70s turn with colorful paisley printed pants.
Skirts even made an appearance at the shows, seen here as part of a blue set at Comme des Garcons.
