For the Ladies,


I always admired men who put themselves together. We, as women, often complain that men don't really need anything to dress up but a suit, shirt, tie and a pair of slacks, while we're chucking shoes, tops, dresses, skirts and everything we have from our closets onto our beds, just to find the right outfit. Although this may be true, I can't help but really admire those men that go the extra mile with either a hat, suspenders, fancy shoes, bow-tie or all the above. But even more so those women that can actually pull off menswear, while still looking feminine. 

To really nail the menswear inspired look for day to day, you really have to focus on making it look effortless, and by that I mean casual and unforced. First look at the structure of your outfit. If you have a structured blazer, with a skirt, slacks, shorts even...let your hair down. To make the look feminized, keep your bottoms strictly from the womenswear department. I would go for a pair of trouser shorts, high waisted pants or skinny jeans. If the shorts are too short pair them over some slightly opaque tights- that's a look that will keep it casual, but still very feminine as well. As for accessories, keep things very simple. You could be daring and try some suspenders, hats, and bow ties, but if you want to keep things on the more subdued side, a structured handbag, pair of studded earrings, or a scarf may just be all you need.

Some awesome places to get a menswear inspired look: Jcrew; Romwe; Gap; Urbanoutfitters
