November 10th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada How to Mix Masculine and Feminine Style

If you’re going for an aesthetic that combines both masculine and feminine style, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a collection of outfits that mix the best of both worlds. Our favorite part? You probably have a lot of these pieces already in your closet!

Finally, a reason to bring back that army coat you have tucked away in the back of your closet. Dress up the piece by styling it over a top and skirt combo, and you’re good to go!

 

While an oversized hoodie might not be a fashion statement on its own, there’s no reason it can’t serve as the focal point with another jacket layered over it. Balance this masculine outfit with over-the-knee boots and a baker boy hat!

 

A nice set of earrings and a light pastel sweater are the only ladylike touches you’ll need to upgrade your everyday work slacks.

 

Curate the perfect masculine and feminine outfit combination by playing around with layers and details.

 

Start from the bottom and work your way up. Style a pair of grungy combat boots with a more feminine piece like a teddy bear jacket.

 

Steal a page from Justin Timberlake’s style book, and get your “suit and tie” on. Just add a bright red lip color, a neutral clutch and a simple pair of heels like Annabelle Fleur did here.

October 25th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Ways to Wear a Baker Boy Hat This Fall

There’s always that one item we see blogger gals rocking during fashion week that we just can’t wait to get our hands on. This fall, it’s the baker boy hat, also known as the newsboy or pageboy.

So, how exactly should you style one? Scroll on to see some of our favorite ways to rock the baker boy hat:

No one can deny how cute this brown hat is. Style it with a neutral color scheme to make this outfit look cohesive.

 

Recreate this look by styling a vibrant dress with over-the-knee boots and topping off your outfit with a baker boy hat!

 

This colorful, patterned co-ord set combined with a baker hat reminds us of our favorite Clueless gal pal, Cher Horowitz. What’s not to love?

 

The best feature of this hat? Worn with a simple ponytail, it can easily disguise messy hair days. Throw on a matching suit and loafer mules to transition this polished style to the streets.

 

These hats don’t have to be paired with an over-the-top outfit to look stylish. Keep it simple and chic and pair one with a t-shirt and jeans.

 

Skip the dad hats and opt for a baker boy hat to elevate your style this fall.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match red patterns with a plain red staple piece. Try adding unexpected details to your outfit, like a sweet red bow on your ankle.
