One of the greatest things about fashion is the allowance of mixing and matching. That’s what makes great style…those ‘highs and lows’ I’ve mentioned before are really what generate unique outfits. Today’s blogfit is just that. Menswear + Feminine details. I absolutely love feminine styles and silhouettes, but I also love menswear details, like a good piece of leather. I think leather is one of my favorite textiles used in apparel and accessories. It’s got such a versatile quality to it. It can be rough and tough and completely utilitarian, but it can also be the perfect detail to many contemporary designs…and just adds that perfect amount of ‘edge’.
These trouser chinos definitely say ‘menswear’. When I first saw them in the window, I honestly thought they were a dress pant…I then realized they were actually a chino and was really surprised! But surprised in a good way, because as a chino, they are very comfortable but the pinstripe makes them appear much more sophisticated.
Blouse is one that I made about a year and a half ago, blue pinstripe chinos from Anthropologie (my newest favorite pants!) shoes from Steve Madden, Brahmin handbag…as seen in this last post.
