Menswear Made Modern

There has always been something very sexy about women borrowing looks from Men's Fashion. But there is a fine line between Menswear made Sexy and Menswear made... well, tres Butch. So when I started to put this look together, I knew I wanted something that emphasized a feminine silhouette, but borrowed classic menswear touches like vests and this fabulous Top Hat. With a Pop of Red mixed in, it is very current and I think pretty eye catching.

This hair and Hat combo called 'Noah' from "PE" is really cute, and I think as cute on guys as on gals, the texturing on the hat is really nice, and it looks like a weathered crushed felt, really nice. I love the feather accent on the side too, I am consistently impressed with the details in Aemilia's work. I picked up this two necklace set at "OPIUM Everyday", they can be worn separately or together, and the double strand which I tinted Red can be made to match anything you wear.

I loved this 'Ruffled Vest' from "Hiccup" the minute I spotted it, and it comes on a jacket layer, but I was having trouble finding a blouse to wear under it that was long enough. The 'Boyfriend Button down' from "Blaze" (which was a FREEBIE) is great for a long look, using the shirt and system skirt layers. Some underpants layer jeans, these from "Mischief Fashions" work well with a sleek boot, like these from "Last Call - Vamp". I LOVE this Hobo Bag from "Celestial Studios", and own it in Orange and Denim, but this 'Patent Cherry' was a valentines gift to the Update Group, and seriously... can a woman have too many purses? I think not. So this is my take on a very feminine menswear look, sometimes it's nice to put the girly stuff aside in favor of something sleek and tailored.
