Man Up

I recently blogged for The Huffington Post UK on the masculine trend (read it here) and how I don’t consider it to be the best trend for me. However, Next are doing some amazing blazers at the moment and as soon as I saw this white jersey tux jacket, I knew I had to do an outfit post on it. It’s exactly the type of thing I’d love to wear, but that I think requires a long, slender frame. Well, screw it! I thought I’d give it a bash anyway. I styled it with black skinnies but a pair of wide leg trousers would make for an elegant look. This wonder-blazer will also look amazing with a sequin dress, draped casually over your shoulders.

What do you think? Do you like the masculine trend, or do you prefer feminine looks?

Sorry for the slightly grainy shots, although I think it adds something to the pictures. Thanks to my lovely Mum who acted as photographer for the evening! 🙂
