Men can learn so m

Mark Graham looks to w to break the current re I must admit, sometimes I get unbelievably frustrated at men’s style and fashion. I’ve been writing about it for over two years now, and, just like anything that involves being creative; it’s hard to find the same passion that you once had when you first started out.

However, recently I’ve begun to feel reinvigorated with this menswear game that I know and love, and this change in attitude has stemmed from the strangest of sources: women’s fashion. Now before you all start to give me a good verbal thrashing, allow me to explain… I don’t mean that I’ve exclusively started wearing women’s clothes! I don’t even mean that I’ve started incorporating a few subtle women’s pieces here and there (although there is an argument to be made for this). What I mean is that I’ve injected some life into my personal style, by stealing ideas from the way that women approach fashion in general. Remember, they’ve been doing it a lot longer than

us, guys! And arguably a lot better too. When it comes to colour combinations, pattern mixing and textures, women are the masters. And who’s to say we can’t steal from them? Fashion is still a women’s game anyway, so why not learn from the best?
