As the royal wedding looms in 8 days we have had our dose of cutey romantic dressing, so I am focusing on this new trend of 'unisex' dressing. Still, I will be glued to the tv next Friday to see all the hats, dresses and accessories!!!
Back to mannish styling. I make a point of favouring feminine, sensual clothing over scruffy boyishness. However there is such a thing as achieving a sexy look wearing men's clothes.
My essentials in this dress code would have to be:
- A white shirt. Men's shirts are a) cheaper and b) better quality. Head to Brooks Brothers for a crisp style or choose the high street which offers plenty of choice. Personal favourite du jour has to be the simple Next one, yours for 22£. Nip in at waist with a tan belt.
- Man's cachemire jumper. Well in this case maybe not cheaper than our female range but far cooler, think Jane Birkin on a bateau-mouche traveling down the Seine *sigh*. I especially like men's cardis for layering over skinny jeans or for a chilly summer evening over a pretty floral dress.
Also my recent discovery is to look in the children's ranges for trendy jackets that will work the cool preppy look. See Stella McCartney for Gap and the likes.
Wishing you all a happy easter break and may the sun shine where you are.
