Style Translator: Mixing Masculine and Feminine Styles
Aug 6, 2015
This look makes all the right moves. I love the interplay between masculine and feminine styles. The stylish military very and feminine details like a poppy-colored nail and layered bracelets for a look that is tough but pretty.
The Military Vest. Worn over a dress or belted over a pair of jeans, an olive-colored vest is a great option for late summer/early fall. This Kors vest has a really cool shape and great details. I also like this shawl-collar option from Forever21 and this navy, twill vest from Maison Jules.
Plus-size? Try this American Rag military vest.
A Crisp, White Shirtdress. A shirtdress is the epitome of mixing the crispness of a masculine button-up with the femininity of a white dress. This one from Alexander McQueen is perfect for layering. Add a vest. Add a belt. Wear it loose over leggings.
The Structured Satchel. A bag with a strong shape dresses up any outfit. It brings an easy sophistication that can’t be missed. It’s the perfect, versatile bag.
I like this Kenneth Cole satchel. This Rebecca Minkoff Bowery tote/satchel is a great buy at The Outnet. Need something under-$50? Try this bag from Urban Expressions. Prefer a bag in dark brown? I love this bag from Emilie M.
