It’s a Man’s World, but it would be nothing without a Woman or a Girl
Today’s outfit post is a play on some serious dynamics in fashion. I have to admit I have a thing for men’s fashion and I always wanted to get dolled up in menswear without looking entirely masculine. I think men get to have so much fun with their wardrobes and there are some ideas I think are cool enough for me to take a bite at…..lol! What I love about this look is that it can be achieved by BOTH men (minus the heels…lol) and women. So how do you achieve this look?
Let’s look at it in steps:
1. Colour blocking– This is the technique of wearing multiple solid colours in an outifit which can include a palette of about two or more colours. Being from the Caribbean where vibrant colours are a part of our identity it is only natural that my palettes be bold and bright.
2. Playing on Androgyny / Ambiguity – In this outfit my goal was to achieve a sleek masculine look while simultaneously still remaining feminine and soft. To do this I used tailored trousers , a t-shirt that was not too fitted and of course I finished the look with a blazer.
3. Jewelry– When rocking a look like this , try not to do too much jewelry and stay true to the aesthetics of a look of this nature , unless you love risks, then you could go all the way with lots of statement pieces.
4. Accents- Accents are important for sealing the deal in an outfit. In my case I used leather accents via my thin belt and leather bag and topped it all off with a matching animal printed heels. Accents are what delivers that “aftermath” impact and makes the look memorable.
Today’s outfit post is dedicated to my fun-loving and ever energetic friend and family Camiel Best-Caton who passed away today. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS…RIP!
