I’ve written that I like to mix masculine and feminine elements in my outfits. I have a strong feminine side to my dressing, but I don’t feel comfortable in sweet, lacy things head to toe. Nor do I feel totally like “me” in a man-tailored suit and oxfords.
When “Everyday Luxury” designer Adea contacted me about styling one of their new camisoles, I thought a M/F mix would be perfect. Adea tops are so silky, you’d swear they were actual silk. But they’re not – they wash and dry in a flash, never wrinkle, and feel like heaven on my skin all day.
So a feminine camisole with a classic pencil skirt (but in an unexpected color), topped with a real man’s shirt = good look and feel for me. I think a colorful necklace would look great next time.
|The cami looks more teal here, but it’s true emerald. Curls in rebellious mode.
The man’s shirt was thrifted, and it’s by Yves St. Laurent.
|So happy I had to smirk! White Mountain sandals are out of storage, yay.
|The Adea Bra Friendly Camisole comes in 17 colors. This is Sherbet, my next color for Summer.
