Opposites attract, and many times the opposite of something makes the display look more attractive, such as men’s inspired clothing on women. This season it is a big trend so we see the work of many designers who are inspired by the menswear style.
Options such as blazers, vests, oxford shoes or loafers are in accordance with the androgyny trend. Masculine suits, ties, shirts, suspenders, and boyfriend jeans often identify a menswear style. But remember, appearing masculine does not mean that you can’t play with colors and patterns; you want to make sure to balance the look.
Let’s take a staple menswear item that is hot this season – the tuxedo jacket, and discuss how to mix and match this masculine piece and feminine style to look sleek, chic, and glam!
1. Choose a classic white tuxedo jacket and add some drama. Play light by adding sweet accents like a brooch, or a floral scarf, or a statement necklace. Play up the effect by choosing slim fit pants.
2. Another idea on how to incorporate a tuxedo jacket; wear it with a mini floral dress, or a girly blouse (ruffled or patterned) and a mini skirt for the best of both worlds.
3. A final idea for a really fun night out, you can maintain a sleek look with the jacket, but choose shorts for a more dynamic vibe. Wear some classic items such as vintage earrings or a simple dainty necklace to keep that classy chic style.
Happy styling and don’t be scare to experiment!
