Spring Style 2012 – Masculine yet Feminine



Here is another classic look in my opinion. Perfect for work, it’s masculine yet feminine and depending on the fabrics you use, this look can work for any season, including Spring 2012.

Masculine Style: The bones of this look are very masculine. The wool pinstriped tailored and cuffed pants with the vest. It’s all the supporting pieces that give it a more feminine look. The classic envelope clutch works the professional and polished lines but the bright orange leather keeps it fun. The vintage multi-coloured, button-up shirt could be a little stiff but thanks to the colours there is life and the long bow tie at the neck keeps in the feminine realm. Of course once you add in my favourite pair of orange suede wedges, you get a little feminine and a whole lot of fun from this look.

Wide-legged Trousers: These Ralph Lauren wide-legged trousers are one of my favourite pairs of pants to wear after jeans. They are tailored well, lined and feel fabulous on. When I bought this pair a few years ago the original price had been $599, I got them on final mark down for $60 and they began my constant lusting for all things Ralph Lauren. I have since purchased a few more pair of Ralph Lauren pants and even a few shirts. I’m kind of a RL junkie! It is so hard to resist the classic tailoring and beautiful chic lines of all things Ralph Lauren.

There you have my take on the Masculine/Feminine trend for Spring 2012. This could work equally well in the Northern Hemisphere for Autumn. Especially because the colours I chose to work with are classic autumnal colours. But then if you know me, you know I can’t resist orange for long!
