It’s a Cinch!

I’ve always wanted to try my hand at masculine-feminine dressing. Imagine all those models-off-duty looks with their boxy blazers and straight cut jeans perfectly hanging oversized and effortlessly on their stick thin bodies. But I’m no model, and wearing those things on my petite frame would only make me look like a midget wearing her dad’s clothes! Sooo here’s my take on the androgynous trend! Blazer, tank and jeans-check! But each with a different take that’s more suited to my body. It’s always fun to take trends you like and make it fit into your own personal style, yes?

Since oversized pieces paired with pants or long skirts tend to overpower my petite frame, I made sure to cinch my waist to make it more feminine. I used the excess length of the belt and tied it around in a non-chalant knot to make my work wear outfit seem a bit less stuffy and more effortless and casual.

To keep things interesting, I chose to wear studded flats instead of the expected high-heeled pump. I really don’t believe in heels being the ultimate fashion choice. Sometimes, you just look (and feel) better with flats! But then again, wear whatever makes you happy!
