Borrowing from the boys

pinstripe blazer

suit up

I love borrowing style elements from menswear and I usually find the best pieces in my husbands closet (last weekend I wore his tuxedo trousers to dinner and let’s just say there’s a chance he won’t be getting them back). This blazer, however, is actually mine and I love how it has a masculine feel but a feminine fit!

Catch of the week

Carolina Engman

Let me introduce you guys to the catch of the week – this coat! The combination of the oversized lapels, dropped shoulders and cinched waist provides the perfect mix of masculine & feminine and gives the coat such a cool silhouette. And the best part? It’s yours for 129 dollars. A great catch indeed!

Walking the line between feminine and tough

walking the line between tough and feminine

When it comes to finding the perfect balance between feminine & tough, it’s all about playing with contrasts. In this look, a black leather jacket adds an edge to a delicate silk top, and a pleated midi skirt goes from girly to cool with the help of a pair of high heeled mules!
