Like most of you, I've been researching the Fall trends lately and I'm glad to see that "menswear" is still on the trend list. Really, it's old news, it's been around for a while now, but who can blame 'em for keeping it going? Have you noticed how feminine you feel in menswear? It's like the contrast between the clothing and the wearer is so strong that instead of it hiding your femininity it just makes it more apparent.
My short hair is pushing it in the femininity department, but throw on some red lipstick and pearls and I feel the most womanly sort of powerful. I feel a sense of authority that is based on my appearance alone. I know it sounds like an authority or confidence that could be taken away with the removal of a jacket, but really it's just a seed that's been planted in your subconscious. Why do you think they call Power-suits, Power-suits? Not to get too technical and factoid-y, but psychologist have found that there is real validity to the old saying "fake it till you make it."
P.S. I'm not saying that only dressing like a man can make you feel powerful. Wear what makes you feel confident. If Uggs make you feel powerful, then I guess you can wear those.
