Here's How You Can Master the Menswear-Inspired Trend for Fall

Oftentimes, the best role models for menswear-inspired style are, in fact, trailblazing women who expertly master the art of gender-bending dress without ever breaking a nail, like Banana Republic's new creative director Marissa Webb. Her stolen-from-the-boys aesthetic has become the unofficial blueprint for the brand's Fall 2014 collection. From oversized topcoats and men’s button-downs to silhouette-hugging skinnies and leather minis, see how bloggers Ann of Andy Heart and Arielle of Something Navy take a cue from Webb’s style by incorporating men’s pieces into their looks for fall. 

Swipe down to see how you can turn what's "his" into "hers" this fall by simply mixing versatile men’s pieces into your wardrobe.
