Lately I’ve been totally consumed by menswear-inspired looks. Sleek separates, slouchy shorts, easy tees and more have been popping up more and more into my Outfit Envy Pinterest board and I can’t get enough of it! While perusing the Friends & Family sale at Theory a couple weeks ago, I discovered this pair of slouchy, masculine shorts and was itching to try out the look. They’re a classic fit and basic black, which makes these shorts easy to style year-round. Here, I’ve style them for a more dressed up look with heels and a sleek blazer (perfect for a work event, right?), but I’ll definitely be pairing them with tanks and sneakers this summer for a more relaxed vibe. How would you wear the menswear trend?
