There are very few things that are hotter than menswear on a woman. It’s not a look that I can pull off that much — it helps so much to be tall, or voluptuous, or a number of other characteristics that I’m decidedly not. But when I was thinking about what to pair with this skirt (the same one from my Tory video earlier this week!), I found myself wandering over to Chad’s closet more than my own.
Enter: the men’s tuxedo shirt. Even better would probably be to find a well-tailored women’s mock-tuxedo shirt, but for a look you’ll probably only wear once or twice, it’s a lot more cost-conscious to borrow one.
A little bit of double-stick tape is a necessity here — the sexy unbuttoned look is hot, wardrobe malfunctions are not. Take it from a girl who’s had her share of mishaps with the low-V — a little tape upfront will save you a lot of embarrassment later on.
Also! A little off the menswear kick, but Stylefind (In Style’s shopping site!) asked me for my “It” bag pick for 2011 — and I picked this amazing minimalist Chloe satchel! Feel free to click on over there and vote for my pick, if you’re so inclined!
