TREND: Androgynous Edge with Feminine Flair

You don’t have to dress ultra girly to be flirty and feminine. Playing with masculine items, as this Fashionista did, is an unexpected way to look chic and stand out among the female-dominated student body here at Boston University.

A great pair of high-waisted, pleated trousers is the perfect androgynous piece to start with. Tuck in a casual T-shirt ,and layer with an army-inspired jacket and cozy scarf. This Fashionista adds feminine flair with embellished flats and an armful of bracelets, juxtaposed by the mannish watch wrapped around her other wrist. Move over, boys – this look is strong. The masculine edge of her ensemble gives her an authoritative air, while dainty touches make her approachable and fashion-forward.

Trousers are not the only item that can give an outfit an androgynous punch. Swap them out for skinny jeans, and trade in the military jacket for a tailored blazer. Cinch it in at the waist with a thin belt to emphasize your womanly curves. Accessorize with a chunky necklace to bring the focus to your feminine facial features, but counter it with a pair of boyish oxford flats.

Looking for total comfort? Pair boyfriend jeans with a fitted top and cozy cardigan, and you are ready to take on Comm Ave. in style.

Female Fashionistas –  let’s show the boys who’s boss by donning clothes from their closets with a fabulous, feminine twist.
