Not your boyfriend’s jacket

I love feminine clothing, with florals, frills and flowy fabrics, but I love them even more when mixed in with classically masculine detailing – interpreted for women. The contrasting pieces can use leather, denim, studs, and references to iconic male fashions, like the Gentleman’s tuxedo, Soldier’s uniform, Cowboy’s denim shirt, Detective’s trench, Biker’s leather jacket or Outdoorsman’s gear.

Wear more tailored jackets, like these motorcycle and tuxedo jackets, with flirty dresses that contrast their angularity with more feminine shapes.

With these more slouchy shapes and fabrics, create more overtly feminine shapeliness underneath with form-fitting and body conscious pieces, like slim fit pants that accentuate your curves.
