I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of menswear on women. As a girly-looking woman, with frizzy blond hair, I really appreciate the contrast of an unexpected men’s suit coat, or oxfords, or even a tie and vest.

Below I’m wearing a boyish chambray shirt (sim) tucked into cropped AllSaints trousers (thrifted, similar) The trousers have a jodhpur cut, not my usual preference, but I like it here. The artistic black pendant was crafted by my friend Suzanne of Suzanne Carillo, you can find lots of her treasures here.
The velvet print jacket below, one of my favorite accent pieces, is also from Suzanne’s shop. It goes with everything and makes this menswear look more feminine. The oxfords are old, and by Calvin Klein (sim). I’ve had them resoled a few times, and I’m looking for a replacement; that’s how good they are.
And a simple black tuxedo jacket (sim) takes the outfit back to boyish. My photographer was making me laugh, he does that.
