Guide to Man-Style Dressing


Cast your mind back to a few seasons ago when androgynous dressing was on trend. Girls started dressing like boys, felt hats, brogues and ties were the must-have accessories, and Agyness Deyn was everyone's style inspiration. It's a trend that's lasted, appealing not just to the tomboys in us, but because slipping into clothes that are traditionally not feminine felt good and powerful, a way to subvert gender codes even if we're just playing dress up.

Winter is typically the best season for man-style dressing, and this season's long line vests, double-breasted blazers and lean trousers give us many options to choose from. 

Take guidance from David Jones' very own androgynous beauty, Montana Cox (from a shoot with Sunday Mail) for the top items you need to dress up like a man:

1. A long-line blazer

2. A button-up shirt

3. A sleeveless vest
