What I Wore…

…to a friend’s graduation.  The style plan was feminine yet comfortable (because we all know how graduations can be, right?).  A dress or simple skirt combo was my first thought.  However, when I came across a picture in the Express lookbook (below), I immediately knew I’d found the perfect mix of comfort, femininity, and a hint of menswear to make the look interesting!

I’ve been eyeing several celebs (above) who’ve pulled off the feminine menswear look fabulously!  So, I thought why not give it a try too!  Of course, I threw in some red,  a black hair clip turned lapel flower, and layered some necklaces to liven things up a bit.

According to Q, adding feminine touches to traditional suiting can make a stylish statement.

Black and white is a classic combo and red accessories (lips included) add just right touch of sass.

What do you think of feminine menswear? Will you be rocking it?

Yours in Stilettos,

    Every woman needs an impeccable pants suit in her closet. One that’s perfectly tailored and can switch the pieces in and out.
