Mixing Masculine and Feminine Looks
This week I am so excited to be partnering with Tracey, from the Lipstick and Muffin blog to do a blog swap. She is going to share some of her style here and I will share some of my style on her blog. (Don't worry, I will post my look here as well.) Part of growing this blog is pairing with other bloggers to get tips and learn some of their fashion insights. Going forward, I really hope I am able to share more and feature a range of other bloggers. Check out Tracey's advice below on how to mix masculine and feminine elements for an outfit that is truly the best of both worlds. -- 💋 OOAFN
Bell sleeves tops have been such a huge trend recently and especially this Fall. Are you seeing them on Instagram & Pinterest and wondering if you can rock them? A lot of you might think that bell sleeves are only for people with feminine style. Today, I would like to prove you wrong. I am sharing my tips on how to style your outfit with bell sleeves tops without losing your strong personality and boss babe attitude.
Tip #1: Add your favorite beaniesI love adding beanies because they can totally change your whole look this fall season. They add more fun to your outfits. If you love black like me, a black beanie can really go with anything. If you are wearing an all-black outfit and want to play with colors, a bright color beanie can act as a great accent item.
Tip #2: Pair your bell sleeves top with ripped jeans
Let me tell you my little secret ... I love ripped jeans! I can wear them 24/7 and through all seasons. I wear them in Spring, Summer to Fall and Winter. You can have so much fun with ripped jeans. They add a bit of edginess and masculine feel to your outfit. In the Fall and Winter, you can even play layering with ripped jeans by wearing tights underneath. With this outfit, I pair my bell sleeves top with a pair of black high waisted ripped jeans.
Tip #3: A leather jacket!
I love leather jackets. I actually have many of them. I think a black moto jacket is classic and should be a ‘MUST HAVE’ item in every girl’s closet. Every year, I secretly pray for fall to come so that I can layer up and wear all my leather jackets because leather jackets are such great layering pieces. A classic black leather jacket can masculinize any outfit and can go with almost anything, especially when matched with ripped jeans.
