Borrowed From The Boys

A good borrowed from the boys look is one of my favorite ways to put an outfit together. I have gone through the 4 Menswear Pieces For A Girl’s Closet and now let’s talk more about how to put it all together!

The key thing to keep in mind is creating juxtaposition or contrast in your outfit. The menswear piece can be fitted or oversized to your liking, just remember to pair it with feminine details. I choose my Chanel mini for both of these looks because it has such a beautiful, feminine feel.

Your shoe choice should also fall into the stiletto heel category unless you’re going for a more sporty look such as here.

A bold red lip for date-night is always a good idea, especially when wearing menswear.

The colors that are paired with a suit also will create contrast. In this post, the maroon velvet is gorgeous with the pinstripe suit!

In one of the pictures below, I changed out the heels for a block heel gold menswear Gucci, which shoe do you like better? Let me know in the comments below!

Tips To Rock A Blazer All Summer Long

Tips To Rock A Blazer All Summer Long 2048 1365 Tammy Caciola

Summer Blazers

From cut-off shorts to maxi dresses and jeans, a blazer will elevate just about any outfit. You can incorporate this outfit-maker year around using the tips I have below.



Show more skin

Pushing up the sleeves not only gives you a cool girl look, but it also helps with the heat of summer.  In addition, choosing a light sleeveless top to wear under is key. I have on long white denim, but a blazer over cut-off shorts is a favorite look of mine! The contrast between structured and casual pieces is perfect.

Take It Off

If you’re running around in the 100-degree heat and not in the A/C, take it off! You can carry it and still get the impact of having a chic layer.



Wear As A Cape

Wearing as a jacket over your shoulders looks so chic don’t you think? This is my favorite way to wear outerwear. BONUS…wearing a blazer like this, also helps with the heat.



Fabrics

Choosing the right material such as linen or a lightweight natural fabric will also give you relief during the summer.


You can see of my shoppable blazer pick’s throughout this post. Also check out The RealReal (I’ve scored Hermes for $95.00 and Dolce & Gabbana for & $75.00, Seriously!) Shopbob and Revolve for more choices!

Menswear For The Girls

There’s a reason menswear staples have withstood the test of time. With the classic silhouettes and fabrics, to the functional detailing, they’re designed to be lived in. Trends come and go, but we will be styling menswear-inspired pieces year after year.

I love how these pieces give you a comfort meets style feel with the clean, tailored lines. Not to mention this style has a very sexy look! You can look to Katharine Hepburn and Kate Moss for inspiration, both were pros of styling a masculine look with a twist.

It’s all about the contrast and proportions of your outfit.  Mixing in feminine pieces will balance the look and separate you from the boys, even if it’s just wearing a red lip, or showing more skin by styling a camisole under a blazer.


 

Jackets

Truth be told, I’ve never met a jacket I didn’t like! I especially love a good trench coat, bomber jacket, blazer or moto jacket! All of which are basically menswear. Whichever style you love, when you wear it with contrasting feminine pieces (See here in the post Styling A Slip Dress With Edge) will give you a cool girl vibe. However, keeping it simple, (maybe with this cult favorite velvet blazer, on sale) and paring it with a t-shirt and denim, thus letting the jacket be the star is also always a winner in my book!


Shoes

I’ve said this before but the shoe sets the tone of your outfit. Wearing a flat, menswear-inspired loafer or oxford will give you the tomboy feeling your looking for. Buy a quality pair you love with the confidence of knowing you will wear them season after season. I have the Gucci loafer pictured above and know they will be in my closet for years to come! Also, I’ve been reaching for these oxfords and these to wear with everything from maxi dresses to denim lately!

Vintage inspired “boy” sneakers can also give you a borrowed from the boys vibe and are very trendy right now. Look to these for the hottest out right now. Also, love these and these!


Accessories

Jewelry can also have a masculine feel. Large watch faces in addition to clean, minimal pieces of jewelry like this unisex line from Miansai.  The chain choker necklace like I have on is also a great example. Long skinny scarves and bandana neckerchiefs are also perfect for layering with trench jackets and blazers. Lastly, don’t forget baseball caps, fedoras, and baker caps to polish off your outfit.
