…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.
Style File: Blazer ~ Vince Camuto; Blouse ~ Express (Portofino);
Slacks – Gap; Patent pumps ~ Nine West;
Clutch ~ American Apparel; Lapel Flower/Hair Clip ~ H&M;
Necklaces ~ Tiffany & Co. (both); Manicure ~ CND Vinylux ‘Black Pool’
Lip ~ M.A.C. RiRi Woo
Side note: Never mind what my hair is doing! I haven’t a clue!
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?
