It started with boyfriend jeans, but where did it end? Another taboo gone: menswear is making inroads into female attire. As our team is preparing for the Spring/Summer 2018 men’s shows, we’ve combed the men Spring/Summer 2017 runways for pieces women should and could own. The likes of Balenciaga, Damir Doma, and Maison Margiela are all into layered fabrics and shapes. From loose-fitting trousers at Yohji Yamamoto and rich embroidered kaftans at Balmain to romantic silk kimonos at Gucci and red oversized coats at Off-white, it’s time to raid the boys’ wardrobes.

His and Hers: The Spring Menswear Trends to Sport Now
Shockingly pretty in romantic purple, comes this creation from Balenciaga. Team it with a pair of white sneakers by day and block-heeled mules in the evening.
Trade the trousers with a pleated maxi skirt and you’re done.
Comme des Garçons is still riding on a creative wave. Take this red dress par exemple – the ultimate showstopper.
A white two-piece suit is a safe bet, as ever. Want to stand out from the crowd? Combine it with a pair of bright coloured ankle boots.
Slip this kimono over your night attire, using the detachable sash belt to define your waist on a Saturday morning.
Another look that doesn’t need a lot of change. The oversized sweater emphasizes a relaxed feel.
Is it a cape? Is it a shawl? Or is it just a blanket? Either way, it might be the perfect finishing touch to your new white abaya.
A special award goes to the turquoise kimono by Balmain. Worn with black leather trousers and a pair of peep-toe platforms, it will stand the test of time and be great for cutting a dash during the upcoming Eid.
Even though spring is moody over at Yohji Yamamoto, this outfit might be the ideal look for those frisky summer nights. Preferably to be worn with a black and white printed headscarf.
