Is That a Guy's Shirt? Yes. Yes It Is.

Mastering the mix of masculine and feminine is key when borrowing something from the boys. You can go all out with a shirt or shoes, or, borrow smaller pieces such as a masculine leather belt or hat. For example, balance a plaid flannel & leather belt with skinny jeans & a feminine play on oxfords. Tuck the plaid flannel into your jeans- the key is to not button the first 2 buttons, for a more feminine play on the shirt. From left, Gap Men's Single Pocket Plaid Flannel Shirt in Red Plaid, $49.50,
Gap.com, Hollister Betty's Oceanside Super Skinny in Extreme Dark Wash, $39.89, hollisterco.com. Finish off the look with feminine oxfords and a woven leather belt. Try (from right) Steve Madden 'Trouser' Laceless Oxford in Brown, $69.00, nordstrom.com, L.L. Bean Essential Braided Leather Belt in Brown, $39.50, llbean.com. Also, try adding a simple piece of jewelry with a rugged feel, keeping with the masculine vibe. Try the Medium Size Spike Necklace in Yellow Gold, $560.00, lizziescheck.com. The gold in this also compliments the buckle in the belt to bring the outfit together.
