FLORALS WITH LEATHER
Designers have been combining menswear and womenswear for quite a while now, and it has become my favourite way of dressing. To be able to wear more manly pieces and power suits, is empowering for me as a woman. Last September Burberry condensed four shows into two, combining their womenswear and menswear, Thornton Bregazzi and Vivienne Westwood have previously done the same also, androgyny has cemented itself in the fashion world and is here to stay. It's all about balance and picking the right pieces to work in your wardrobe. The trick is to stick with a similar colour palette and keep it quite neutral, with black and grey. For your first investment in the look, a great pair of masculine boots are a must have and can relax just about anything you wear. For winter, a manly cut blazer is your go-to, over dresses, paper bag waist pants or flares, it gives the perfect silhouette and is uber versatile.
For this look I paired a very feminine dress, with enough sheer lace to show some skin in the right way, and paired it back with tough accessories. The bag adds is boxy and masculine, as are the boots, which I also love wearing with a baby pink two piece.
