Last season, designers the likes of Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga and Alessandro Michele at Gucci sent menswear-inspired suits down the runway. Still going strong, the trend carried over into the Fall/Winter 2017 season, leaving its mark on New York Fashion Week – and the Middle East’s Insta-girls were quick to follow suit (no pun intended). They were spotted on Instagram giving the trend their own personal, non-corporate spin, mixing and matching unusual textures and prints, adding “It” accessories, or simply opting for half the look. Scroll through to see their outfits and get inspired to try something new at the office.
