Menswear-Inspired


Although this is a trend that resurfaces regularly in fashion, it's one I've never quite embraced.  It may be due to the fact that I'm typically drawn to a more feminine silhouette or it could be simply because I hadn't found the right mixture of items to make it work.  But when I discovered these cropped pants on the clearance rack, I immediately had a vision of how I wanted to wear them.  The ruffles & detailing in the blouse provides the perfect contrast to more tailored pieces and red suede pumps add a dash of bold color.




What I'm wearing:
Banana Republic blouse, H&M blazer, The Limited pants (here), BCBG heels (here), Michael Kors watch, Target earrings, Macy's bracelet (here)

There were an awful lot of tuxedos for women on the catwalks recently, I do love the look but it's something I don't feel I can pull off myself. I think you have it right here - with the feminine touches of the ruffles and the red shoes (hot!) you make it your own and wear it in a way that works for you. Some good inspiration here!

Perhaps see you in NY for fashion week?

I certainly missed the boat on this blouse at BR! Menswear is not easy to pull off and I think you did a great job incorporating feminine and masculine together!
