MILCH is an Australian label that takes secondhand menswear and mixes it up to create beautiful womenswear. Despite drawing from the current androgyny trend in fashion, MILCH's pieces are still feminine at heart.

It's the details, like French cuffs, newsboy caps and rear pockets, that take inspiration from a masculine aesthetic. Take a look at the gallery for more of MILCH's inspiring upcycled creations.

Implications - The desire to experiment with styles is growing. No longer attracted to ultra-feminine looks that advocate the traditional female, women are looking for designs containing a more unconventional aesthetic. Fashion companies and designers could develop styles that are appealing to the evolving female in order to generate more revenue. Stats for Upcycled Menswear for Women Trending: Older & Warm
