DRESS like a Man

Women in menswear isn’t revolutionary! Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn are a few fashion icons who borrowed from the boys in the past. I like to think that those greats would appreciate the way I’m trying today to balance feminine, flirty and masculine elements all in the space of one look.

If you want a masculine look you have to learn how to DRESS like a Man and still feel like a Woman.

You don’t have to loose your femininity, but to feel sexy in a different way.

Lately I have a crush on the masculine-feminine way of dressing myself. Even if it’s strange, dressing like a man has always made me feel like more of a woman. In the workplace, it always give an instant authority. Outside, it has a charm many men are unable to resist.

Spotted out yesterday in front of Romanian Athenaeum, I took to the streets, reworking the nothing-underneath notion (just a black bustier) a navy blue suit. I paired it with a stylish coat and a faux-fur collar for an extra impact. You have to have a fabulous touch, don’t you think?

If you want to dress like a man Wear a suit, but forget about the shirt! A nice cleavage will be super sexy. If you are looking for a statement look, try this: wear your suit on naked skin and you are done! It’s an attention-grabber. So just make sure you feel at ease and be ready for the “wow” effect! Put on a lipstick and wear your hair no shorter than shoulder-length to amplify the tension. When you use masculine clothes try to add ladylike accessories to soften the look, like a  jewel-like box clutch or delicate gloves. One thing that never goes out of style in winter, it’s a good stylish coat! Take your stilettos and if the coat doesn’t look like you expected it, wear it on your shoulders.

I’m not trying to make a feminist statement by the way I dress. For me it’s very simply. To feel feminine, I need to feel comfortable.

Men’s clothing, with it’s best tailoring tricks, is far more flattering.

This season, Suits take on a masculine edge on the runways. The trend for classically tailored suits was seen at Haider Ackermann, Hermès and Ralph Lauren.  Angelina Jolie’s tuxedo-suited turn at the Baftas and Cara Delevingne’s predilection for androgynous dressing have also sparked the comeback. Last month I saw the launch of 56-year-old model Ines de la Fressange’s collaboration with Uniqlo, championing the boyish style.

 I love to dress up like a man every now and then. I always let my styling creativity go to the next level and wear something unusual. In my opinion fashion is a party and us fashion lovers should celebrate it everyday!

After all, bloggers are influencers! We influence people to make decisions, to shop, to change the hairstyle, to think about career change and most of all to motivate them. If it wasn’t for my readers, I would never be able to do what I do which is why I want to give them a huge part of this experience. Blogging is such an amazing career! But don’t forget to give back the same to people who got you there and motivates them to be the best possible version of themselves. That is the pure key to success in this industry or any other.

Be the best version of yourself and motivate others to do the same! This happens when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.

I say…..Let’s talk fashion! And…. DRESS like a Man!
