Fauxionable Outfit – Menswear Inspired

While I enjoy dressing up in skirts and dresses, I also love menswear inspired outfits. Quite frankly, I’d love a wardrobe with more androgynous outfits, especially button down shirts and blazers. However, I’m just far too lazy to iron shirts and blazers seem to be reserved mostly for client meetings or interviews at my workplace (although I still try to incorporate them into my outfit every so often).

I think finally buying a pair of oxfords is a step in the right direction towards creating more androgynous outfits. I have been wanting a pair for the longest time yet I either never found something I like, or at a price point I was willing to pay. Since I resolve to focus on buying classic pieces, I finally caved in when these Cole Haan Skylar Oxfords went on sale. As there weren’t any left in my size online, I called the local store who kindly redirected me to the outlets, as they’ve all been sent there (marked down to $99 at outlets!). I love these Skylar Oxfords as they are dressy yet fun for it’s reflective nature makes it very versatile. Make no mistake that these would be my only pair for I have my eye on another pair from ZARA. Just patiently awaiting for sales! πŸ˜‰

    All of my outfits are menswear inspired, but I’d have to say my favourite is my cardigan(s).

      Oh, but of course. And cardigans with elbow patches are your favorites, right? πŸ˜‰

        How did you know? πŸ˜‰ I’ve not had many vests though, and the one you’ve got does look rather smart. I don’t usually like pinstripes but it definitely works.

      Thank you, Tara! I highly recommend one as it adds a layer of warmth in transition between seasons!

    Looks fabulous. I am not sure if it is aided by the light as well, but their is something magical about that combination of the pink shirt and the gold jewellery.
