When Boy Meets Girl

In this perpetually evolving fashion world, something about the mix and match of masculine and feminine pieces never cease to intrigue me. Oftentimes this androgynous “boy-meets-girl” edge is the staple of many powerhouse designs, ranging from Alexander Wang’s utilitarian cashmere sweater and distressed boyfriend jeans, to Givenchy’s signature gothic shirts that evoke a dark, brooding essence to French haute couture.

Though in the early 1940s women were expected to wear tailored suits and dresses with slim cut silhouettes, nowadays it’s run-of-the mill to see women adding men-inspired clothing to their getup. Freedom of expression? Yes. Style and comfort? You bet. Whether it’d be choosing flannels and boyfriend jeans to channel that grunge persona, or draping a moto jacket over a filmy frock to ascend to “Punk Princess” status, consider it a creative outlet for ladies to cobble together pieces that blur all gender-specific boundaries whilst maintaining an aura of femininity.

In my outfit today I chose to play up my tomboyish aura by adding a unisex fashion staple to my ensemble. Want to take a polished spin on a flowy floral dress? Then tough it up with a well-fitting leather jacket that would a.) give definition to your shoulders and b.) keep you warm during the summer-fall transitional period. Not to mention overstepping the hard and fast rule of following current IT trends when fashion is more fun styled “outside the box”! When we dress not to impress but to don clothing that uniquely define our style, exude our personality, and manifest our creativity, then that’s when we become the subject of our choice rather than the object of fashion’s affection. Simply put we wear clothes and not let the clothes wear us.

Whether it’d be ultra-feminine pieces marked by frilly tops and mini skirts, or oversized sweaters with skinnies and doc martens, be a trailblazer designer and add a unique style to your lookbook. Draw in the zig-zag lines, add a dash of color, and paint that canvas a multi-colored version of YOU 🙂

    • Thanks Ginny! Hinge has some nice vintage staples and I’m glad you scored a leather jacket from the sale last year! Did you get anything from this year’s sale? I’ll be sure to check out your jacket :). Great leather jackets that fit our style and cut are hard to come by, I’m glad we both got ones that fit our needs and at decent prices too! 🙂

  1. I’m loving mixing in some more ‘masculine’ pieces into my outfits lately — such a fun way to change up a classic & feminine look! I love the leather jacket with the floral pattern 🙂
