Style: Style Reinvention with Menswear – Part 2


For part 2 of the challenge, I decided to take it one step further by not using any times from the women's section. What can I say, I like living life on the edge.

I wanted to create a look that a real New York City woman would wear on her day off. Unlike my first outfit that I styled, this tomboy off-duty look is all about comfort and being effortlessly cool.

A really easy and simple trick to tackling this is by wearing an oversized short sleeve top, a.k.a the boyfriend tee. What's great about the boyfriend tee is that it fits and flatters any female form, and it's also versatile enough to be incorporated into your wardrobe in various ways. I paired the tee with distressed jeans and a pin stripe bicker jacket to keep the masculine silhouette but I added studded Chelsea boots to give the outfit a feminine touch.

Since this outfit involved many basic pieces, I wanted to enhance the outfit by adding pins. Thanks to, I found some that are perfect for decorating the lapels and collars of the jacket. I also added subtle a razor blade and medallion necklace for more of a streetwear feel. I completed this look by adding a few last elements: a felt fedora — which is the perfect accessory to compliment the "I just rolled out of bed" natural hair waves — simple watch, trendy iPhone case, and super chic bag.
