Fall Winter Fashion Formula #1: Masculine Feminine Mix

January 9th, 2009

Omiru Fall Winter Capsule Wardrobe: #1
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

We start our Fall Winter fashion formulas with a distinctly European chic look.  The juxtaposition of masculine and feminine elements make the look sophisticated, but with an edge.  Here’s how to get the look:

1. Start with a romantic drapey blouse juxtaposed against a rugged pair of military pants. 
2. Slip on a hip-length tailored blazer.  High armholes give the masculine lines of the blazer a flattering feminine touch. 
3. A buckled bootie sweetly mixes masculine and feminine elements, echoing the blouse and pants mix.
4. Draw attention with a standout accessory in a bright color.  Here, the eye is drawn to a lovely handbag in a deep crimson red.

How would you wear masculine and feminine elements?  Share your style with us in the comments!

    I usually struggle to mix masculine with girly, but this is a fantastic formula … and I realize I’ve used it before! I’ve paired cargo crops with granny boots and a black cashmere cowlneck. Loved that look.

    Sal, yes, this masculine-on-bottom, feminine-on-top fashion formula is pretty versatile, and I’m happy to hear that you’ve already been using it in your own life.

    Jessica, me too :) Our philosophy is that every outfit has to have something special about it, whether it’s big or small. Even the smallest touch–a flash of color from a handbag, or even a jacket lining, can be that special something.

    If the blouse is super-feminine, I like both the blazer and slacks be very well-tailored and slim cut. Another interesting combination is a masculine oxford and blazer with a feminine (high waisted, pleated) skirt, and heels.

    i like to wear a skirt and feminine blouse, then a blazer and brogues or flat lace ups. works every time.

    I’ve always felt a bit too ‘boyish’ when I’ve worn cargo pants. Now I know that I was just incorporating too many masculine elements into my outfit! Thanks for the tip.
