WTF? What's The Fashion? Menswear

Whatever Men can do WomEn can do better and this time, "I Swear It's Menswear!" Give your wardrobe a testotosterone makeover by giving mens' suiting, a woman's touch. Skirts and dresses no longer differentiate us from what men would wear in terms of style. Just like almost everything else, we have taken over their side of the closet as well. More and more, ladies are incorporating within their look, tailored blazers, relaxed trousers, and making the look a little more dapper with vests, tie and cumberbunds. But, as true fashionists, we add to mens' fashion more femme fatale with a pop of colour and all that can take is a simple ruby red lip.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Silk/Satin Shirts

These classic blouses are coming back! Silk or satin blouses have the ability to add more of a sensual appeal to any attire. Each year, these shirts are designed in different patterns, fabrics, and colors. This year, silk blouses are seen in floral patterns, animal prints, ruffle necklines, flutter sleeves, and bold jewel to dark hues. There are numerous ways one blouse when paired with the right bottoms, shoes, hairstyle, accessories, and above all attitude, can transform this simple top into a show-stopper. Look to Zoe Saldana's sexy, edgy, and "un-buttoned" take on the trend or Rosario Dawson's sweet and sophisticated look. Class describes Malin's way of wearing her silk blouse, a perfect example of how to wear it when going out with friends or dressing up for a date night.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Blazer and Shorts Ensembles

Suit Blazers paired with shorts are not only sophisticated but sexy as well. This transitional ensemble combines the best of both worlds: masculine inspiration and feminine sass. With that in mind, it's important when wearing such a dominant feature (the blazer) to pair it with feminine details such as a studded top or a ruffled shirt. For the daring, wear underneath the blazer a bandau for a sexy reveal or a satin flowy blouse for a mature chic look. Stay warm on those chilly nights downtown while accentuating your outfit even further with opaque stockings like what Helena is wearing. Create the illusion of non-stopping legs with platforms increasing the gap between the hemline of the short and the top of your pumps! Usually, when someone thinks of suits, basic colors like black and white come to mind. Even though these colors are dynamic for the nightlife; again, and I can't stress this enough, "don't be afraid to throw out the basics" and invest in a gray or navy short suit. Don't dim this dramatic look too much by using dark makeup on the eyes and lips. Stay fresh and light with natural shades of lipstick and highlighting face powder for a natural spotlight glow. Ignite a pop of color by adding it in something simple like a belt, clutch, pumps, or lipcolor (Samaire) to add excitement to an updated traditional ensemble.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Gray Sweaters

Summer hasn't even started yet and we are already seeing gray! But hey, that's the new rule~ "Gray is the New Black!" I personally know many shoppers and style seekers who have a tough time breaking away from the classic black and clean white. Go to gray, it's okay! Gray is another traditional colour that's safe, transitional, versatile, and most importantly, slimming. Keep it streamlined in charcoal gray or stay light and airy in a light heather shade. Dress cool in chilly tempatures by bringing gray into others items of your ensemble like tights, gloves, cardigans, or sweaterdresses. Speaking of sweaterdresses that show legs and have short sleeves, they are the perfect look to wear during the spring when mornings and nights are not quite warm. Get the most out of your gray sweaters by pairing the colour with jewel tones or go with a monochromatic look using different tonal shades of gray. Still you can keep it safe and collective with a pair of black trousers and a white collared button up. Add silver accessories for a metallic shine.

WTF? What's The Fashion? Feather Earrings

Soar into this season's new accessory trend of wearing feathered jewelry. But feathers are more than just a "flight-ful" detail for accessories. They can be used for apparel. Feathers have been created and incorporated in many more fashions other than to be worn in your ears or to sweep away dust. Feathers are designed into shawls and coats. There is no doubt that this trend has really been nesting into the new looks of style. One can show their favouritism for feathers or even by inspired by the Native American culture by wearing them simply in the form of ear or hair accessories. Go all out and get noticed by wearing a feathered skirt. These accessories can make even more of a statement now in different colors, shapes, sizes, and lengths. However, too much feathering can be a fashion fowl. Don't want you to sneeze excessively, be mistaken for a feather duster, or be called a Mother Hen. Limit yourself to one feather item in your outfit. Let your passion for fashion take flight in your own feather accessories. Visit my Blog Page, "Versa~Style" to see how this trend is flying high in fashion!

WTF? What's The Fashion? Denim Jackets with Skirts

The denim jacket is a "way-back" item that's here to stay. A style staple, that if it isn't, should be apart of your spring wardrobe. Since spring has those cool mornings and chilly nights, a denim jacket is versatile and transitional throughout the day. Denim can make an easy ready to wear jacket with shorts, jumpers, and even with sweatpants and a tank top. But the style being spotlighted is pairing this jean throw-on with a skirt. The denim jacket can definitely be right on point used as outerwear with today's trends of floral prints and patterns, can add a little ruggedness to the bohemian chic, and can make a sophisticated look more accessible. Along with a denim jacket, dress up your casual spring look even further with a pair of kit-heels or espadrilles.
