Welcome to Visible Monday #60! If you want to participate, it’s so
easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.
I usually choose feminine pieces that have a drape, ruffle, or soft print on top. Today I’m going a little Tomboy with a plain white cotton tee and menswear vest.
So I had to girl-it-up with a couple of necklaces, a bold bangle and a soft knit skirt. If I’d chosen menswear-style trousers, it would’ve felt “off” for my style. The shoes are newly thrifted. I love a Mary Jane even if they skew a bit youthful. I shall call them “new classics” instead : >

So pleased with how the ring looks on you!
Oh, I love your vest, a little structure and a touch of feminine sounds great to me! I am a huge menswear fan. I will have to check out these other lovely ladies. 🙂 Have a great week.
P.S. Nice work on your Already Pretty guest post!
Patti, this outfit suits you beautifully. I love the necklace loops and how the bangle echoes your shoes as well!
Love your pop of colour (shoes) with black and white!
You look gorgeous in this, Patti! I love the long lines of the skirt and you really have a nice rocker edge (with Mary Janes!).
You know yourself so well, wearing a skirt rather than trousers. Tomboy, yet feminine. The jewelry adds spice!
Love the pretty menswear look! So perfect on you! And maryjanes are definitely a classic! 😉
I love menswear. It's weird how wearing it makes me feel more feminine.Your vest is a fabulous staple piece.
The skirt does have an asymmetrical hem – you have a good eye! The shoes are thrifted and likely not available, but they're by "Reba" and similar to these: http://www.zappos.com/product/8019434/color/369616 and these: http://www.zappos.com/fitzwell-morgan-mary-jane-loafer-brown
I like your take on menswear! It's a trend I'm warming to a lot, and you've done it very well. Layered necklaces is another thing on my list; yours are great!
Thanks for hosting, as always. 🙂
You look very stylish in this outfit. I really like the skirt! Is it asymmetrical or is it just the way it's photographed? I have new skirt with a dip hem and the same kind of waist band, and I was looking for some inspiration on how to style it. Now I know, thank you! Oh, could we please have a close up of the shoes? I need to know exactly what to shop for?
what an adorable look pattie
that skirt is beyond cute and you styled it excellently
That vest is so cool! I'm digging the menswear vibe.
I love that long mazi skirt. Looks great with the layered necklaces and the fun colorful burnt orange bangle. =)
Patti, you look so stylish and chic in this outfit!
Thanks Pao – it's attached to the skirt, a nice scrunchy built in belt : >
Hi Patti, you look great! I like the black cinched cumber-band element. Is it part of the skirt or a separate piece altogether? It all makes you look even taller and slimmer, if that's possible!
You look beautiful! Great outfit!!
Great way to wear a vest! I will have to try this look. I have a vest that I love hanging in my closet that doesn't get out enough.
You look very stylish in your outfit today. It's a flattering look on you.
Congratulations, Patti, on being featured in Huffington Post's list of Fashion over Fifty blogs — well deserved!
Great look Patti! I just purchased a vest and have not got any ideas of how I will style it yet. Thank you for the inspiration!
While rediscovering my style these last few months, I have found that I have a real affection for soft menswear. I just wore a black vest the other day so I when saw yours I said, "YES!" 🙂 You look awesome Patti!
LOVE a menswear vest, and though I have one, I havent been wearing it because it always felt like something was missing. Your necklaces have just pointed-out where I was deficient in my styling. They are the perfect feminine touch with the vest! Thanks!
Patti, I don't think you could every look tomboy, you are so very feminine in everything. You look so lovely in this outfit. Your accessories are so spot on!
Hi! Really like your blog! Why don't you open a Facebook page, so I can see when new posts come out? Just an idea…
This is such a great look. The skirt, the vest. And a Tomboy look is always in style. Good job!!
I love the striped, almost chevron effect of the skirt! Thanks so much for hostessing today, Patti!!! ~Sarah
You look great,whoo I have a black waistcoat somewhere,going to dig it out and try it 🙂 thanks for hosting 🙂
Wonderful outfit! I love masculine style vests – they are so great to dress up a casual tee and love the way you've paired it with the skirt.
it's beautiful the combination, although it is very different from your style. you look marvelous! i love mary janes too, are always hunting for them.
Oh my Patti! I love this look! Gorgeous!!!
Love how you layered the necklace, too!
I like your take on mens wear! If you wore trousers, would a frilly blouse work. Now that I think about it, have I ever seen you in trousers?
I think this is a great look on you Patti, ya little rocker!
Love, love, LOVE. This is my kind of outfit and it looks great on you.
I like how you "girl-it-up"! The necklace your friend made is beautiful. And those fabulous new Mary Janes are a youthful skew but they work great because they match your young energy – even though I like how you have matured the name to New Classics. Hello Monday!
Patti, you put the style into "menswear" today! I love the whole Annie Hall look. This is a great look on you.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
What a great menswear outfit! This is such a great skirt and you can never go wrong with a vest.
'Love those long necklaces! You always look great! -Marci
There's nothing cuter than menswear on a feminine woman. I think your vest makes the outfit!
Such a cute look Patti…it is chic and comfortable and stylish! Love it!
You look great, I love this look on you! Loving the accessories, I would have done the same. The skirt is lovely, the pattern so flattering. I just really really like it! x
Love the outfit Patti!!! I LOVE the shoes (i'm partial to Maryjanes, too) and i like how your bracelet echos the color of the shoes!!
I like this! The graphic black/white combination with the red shoes for color. I like the simpler top with the skirt as well. I have a black vest that I wear constantly, so much so it's shredding, and I still love it! Your hair looks great, too!!
Patti, you look very feminine and chic in your Tomboy outfit!
