Menswear Inspired Dress

It’s no secret, my style is pretty feminine. However, I love menswear inspired pieces and think they bring a beautiful edge to any look. I instantly gravitated towards this elegant little black dress thanks to the tuxedo inspired cuffs and white lapels. What would have otherwise been a stylish yet safe dress is instantly made much more dynamic thanks to these simple little additions. It’s no wonder that so many designers borrow from the boys when designing womenswear. Paired with this stunning white Valnetino bag from LOVEthatBAG and a gorgeous pair of patent leather Mary-Jane pumps, the look is a perfect balance of the masculine and the feminine.

What are some of your favourite ways to incorporate menswear inspired dressing into your wardrobe?
