Outfit || Decoding Menswear For Females + A Giveaway.

Thursday, 24 March 2016

I guess it's no news that I have a thing for male inspired fashion a.k.a. androgyny fashion. I'm not quite sure when this love affair started but I've never really been a "girly girl'. As much as this would make me come off as rugged which I might have been , I remember walking back home from school with my tie hanging off my neck, not knotted like it should have been. I guess the knack for menswear and boxy silhouettes have always been there but it just took being more in tune with this style thing to fully manifest.

Its not everyone's cup of tea though. I took a poll earlier and I realized that while some ladies wouldn't even venture close to that end of the fashion spectrum, some others don't mind but are scared of not pulling it off well.

If you belong to the latter group, here's a quick tip for you : You don't have to go full on androgyny all at once, you can slowly ease into it by introducing one or two male inspired accessories in a look.
- Cute top, boyfriend jeans and heels
-  Pencil skirt, shirt and brogues.
Pulling off the Androgyny look doesn't have to be so hard, here's a quick tip to get you started. Click to tweet!
What's your take on menswear for females?
Do you belong to the "nay not my thing" group, "yass I love androgyny" or the mixed feelings group?
Let me knoww!

In this case though, I'm almost full on androgyny (because PRO! Lol). I wore this sometime last year to an art exhibition but I only just got around to shooting the look. I've also styled the shorts previously here and here.
My suspenders made its first appearance in my graduation outfit post here. I've also styled it here as well and I'm just looking for more fun ways to style it.

What do you think of this look?
If you answered "yass I love androgyny" to my first set of questions : what other ways will you incorporate a suspenders to your outfit?

    2. Hey Cheri! :* :*
      Thank you so much! And 'll definitely check it out, you know I love poetry

  7. I love the look on you but i dont think I've summoned enough courage to pull off the androgynous look.

    1. Hey Tokoni, I get your reservations but you can use the top I shared up there - except it's just not your thing at all.

      Thanks for the compliment!

  8. For some reason I wasn't expecting shorts, I like the outfit.

  9. Hi Cassie!
    I'm in the 'nay not my thing' group lol but you definitely know how to pull this androgyny thing off
    You look great !

  10. When I was younger I used to dress like a Tomboy.
    Then I went natural and felt I had to dress a bit ladylike so I won't look like a boy, especially when my hair was at the TWA stage.
    Now, I'm comfortable & confident enough to dress like a Tomboy with my natural hair and still have that Feminine appeal, like in my Bumblebee post :)
    Thank God for growth.

  11. Mixed feelings.. I love Boyfriend jeans,big shirt.. I think I love Androgynous ����

  12. I love androgynous looks.. I'd pair the suspenders with a skater skirt, denim or nice pant trousers..
    PS: the giveaway, followed all the steps.. Twitter and IG handle :@Preciouss_O
    Really hope to win.. Would be my first

  13. Ahan, Cassie, your glasses is bae. I'm indifferent about the androgynous look but I have a feeling this outfit would look really good on me.

  19. I'm in love with men's wear and I always like to mix it up in a girly way so it looks like I'm wearing my boyfriend's clothes (I wish Lmao). I like the way you always look effortlessly cool in them too and you already know you inspire me.

  20. I've followed all pages *fingers crossed*

  25. I love suspenders. Even I'm a girly girl, I can still see myself in some of your androgynous looks. Fashion's the only affair where I can take risks.
    You look great.

  26. Loooove androgyny but yh, I don't think I'll pull it off. I do own a lot of boyish shoes (it's almost an addiction) and broques, loafers and smoking slippers are everything

  27. Love Love Love!!
