A Woman's Touch

When I posted my “How to…” post on Wednesday (How to… Wear a tux (as a woman!)), I had little idea that one of my favourite bloggers was posting pages from Vogue US’s 2004 shoot of Gisele Bundchen dressed in masculine clothing with a feminine twist. Check out this spread over at Shannon’s post, A Touch of Boyish Charm. I love the waistcoats she wear and my particular favourite shot of the shoot is the second:

As much as I am a fan of the “boyfriend” look – boyfriend jeans and boyfriend cardigans feature heavily in my wardrobe – when it comes to masculine dressing, I prefer tailored pieces that fit the female shape. Sure, a boyfriend cardigan looks great thrown on over a light summer dress but the boyfriend look tends to be more of a casual look. The masculine look (above) is much more work appropriate and adds a quirky twist to business attire. I am so on the lookout for a fitted tailored waistcoat now! Of course, I couldn’t help but start the search already! Here are my waistcoat picks:

 What do you think of the masculine look? And what of the waistcoat choices? Tempted by any of these?

  1. Thank you very much Emily for the mention. Great minds think alike. :)I couldn't agree with you more. While I too love boyfriend cardigans, they must be tailored for a woman's physique – after all, our true beauty must not be draped haphazardly. :)I hope your weekend is going well. xo
