I always appreciate about being a woman: we have way more options when it comes to clothing and accessories. But somehow, it’s those pieces we borrowed from men become permanent residents in our forever changing wardrobe, like the turtleneck sweater and lace-up Oxford spotted on today’s featured ladies.

When rocking the tomboy style pieces, the key is balancing them with feminine touches, like the satin blouse, red nails of Olivia Palermo, or the ladylike bag of Charlize Theron. Rolling up sleeves or cuffs to show the slimmest part of your body is also a great way to add that subtle sexy touch.

In Chinese: 每当我老公抱怨商场里卖的女装总比男装多得多时,我总是很庆幸自己身为女人有这么多选择。但奇怪的是,衣橱里我最喜欢、每次清理都舍不得扔的却是那些从老公衣橱里“借”来的单品,比如机车皮衣、军装夹克,还有从上面的两个时尚偶像身上看到的高领毛衣和系带牛津鞋等。

搭配这些男孩风单品的关键在于用女人味去平衡,比如Olivia Palermo所穿的精致的丝缎衬衫,紧腿裤,或者Charlize Theron所拿的优雅的裸色手包等。另外,随意地卷起袖口或挽起裤腿,露出纤细的手腕脚踝也能增加帅气的性感。小细节也不容忽视,比如红色的甲油或唇彩,或一枚别致的戒指、手环等。

I love love blue. I dedicated my very first post to azure blue, bought my very first pair of designer jeans in cobalt blue, and picked my prom dress in peacock-blue. I remember a long time ago, I came across a book about how to choose your best colors. The author said that your striking color is the closest one to your veins.
