Women have been borrowing from the boys for decades. Case in point: Marlene Dietrich's sexy take on traditional mens' suiting, Melanie Griffith's bulky shoulder pads in Working Girl and Diane Keaton's game-changing role in Annie Hall. But actresses aren't the only ones to take inspiration from the boys, designers do as well--the most famous being Yves Saint Laurent's iconic "Le Smoking" tuxedo suit. Tom Ford and Stella McCartney are menswear fans too, so much so that they make us want to pull out our credit cards way too quickly. Ready to try suiting? Go for it, it's a surprisingly feminine alternative to a dress. If you go for the oversized look, keep your accessories ladylike (think pointy-toe heels and a sexy top--a bustier, even!); if streamlined is more your style, keep the rest of your look tailored with round-toe pumps and a pretty blouse. Whatever you choose, get ready; you're going to turn some heads.
