MAKING ANDROGYNOUS CHIC

21.08.2014 - Blog

Just because you’re a girl, doesn’t mean you have to be decked out in dresses and skirts 24/7. Embrace the androgynous chic trend while still putting a light feminine touch on things!

If you’re looking to balance out your take on the androgynous look, the key is in the silhouette. You can highlight your curves underneath with some leather pants and a tank top, but when it comes to your outerwear, opt for an oversized blazer to keep things a little mysterious. Go for a structured blazer with a classic cut, so it will still be in style for years to come!

No, these are not jeans that you actually take from your boyfriend’s closet. Boyfriend jeans just mean jeans with a masculine cut. Make sure the jeans reveal your ankles, as this gives a super feminine touch to jeans that can be unflattering (besides, ankles are sexy!). Pair them with some minimalist heels and a shirt for ultimate comfort and style.

What better way to look relaxed and feel relaxed at the same time than with a pair of trusty Chucks? The staple American baseball shoe is the ultimate laid-back, day-to-day shoe, and can be styled in so many ways! It can come across as quite tomboyish, so pair it with some super skinnies and bold, red lips to emphasise your femininity.

For an effortless chic and a smart look, go for the oxford shirt. A tailored shirt will do wonders when it comes to pulling off the androgynous look. Classy and cultured, the shirt proves that you don’t have to show a lot of skin to be sexy. Try to glam the ensemble up with a statement necklace. Also, go for minimalist make-up, with bold brows and nude lips. Small factors like these make the androgynous look more believable.

At Eastside, Maison Scotch seems to be the perfect fit if you feel inspired by this trend.
