Hope you are well.
Last Monday in March can only mean one thing .... a post featuring the ladies from the Style not Age collective.
This month fell to Emma to come up with an interesting topic and a rather engaging prompt she offered us too!
Borrowed from the Boys.
Well this left the challenge wide open quite honestly. There were so many routes I could take, so I hope you are impressed with the one I chose.
I think Emma had more in mind to theoretically borrow styles that boys wear, where I took it more literally - I borrowed this from 'my boy'!
With a multitude of choices for this month's prompt - however I must admit to taking the easy option. I literally borrowed this tee shirt from my son. It's from a company called Criminal Damage that has loads of tops I like - maybe my son will buy some more that I can borrow! 😉
I added it to black peg style trousers (had them for years) and my new black blazer complete with shiny buttons to give it a more feminine feel. Similar blazer here.
A suit, specially black really gives of a masculine feel, but pairing it with a brighter tee and pretty trainers definitely releases a more gentle tone - even if it's a man's Tee shirt.
Wearing trainers with trousers give an urban - streetwise feel and it's a look I love to wear.
Paired with the high comfort level, there's a super outfit that can be worn for so many outings.
Let us take a look how my 'Brothers' tackled the challenge.
First in the line up is the promptee ... Emma - The Style Splash.
You've picked well Emma, your jacket is just perfect with your trousers and edgy boots - a great steal from the boys my friend.
Next up is Anna - Anna's Island Style. Anna has opted for suit. She's put a girly twist on the navy suit with a pretty pink blouse complete with frilly sleeves. Love it Anna. x
Shall we see how Hilda - Over the Hilda tackled the task this month. She's gone for trousers and shirt with a the fashionable vest over the top, a borrowed hat from her husband gives it a manly finish.
Finally let's look at Gail's outfit. She's really given her boyish look a girly feel with the bright shades she's opted for. Love all the womanly details Gail. You can find all the details about her outfit on her blog - Is This Mutton.
