WELL SUITED: HOW TO MARRY THE MASCULINE AND FEMININE IN YOUR STYLE

  • 2 min read

FORGOING TRADITION CAN BE DAUNTING, ESPECIALLY IN THE WARDROBE DEPARTMENT. SOCIAL CODES AND CULTURAL DO-NOTS CAN HAVE YOU CHAINED TO THE IDEA THAT WHEN IT COMES TO ADOPTING THE ELEGANT, A DAZZLING GOWN IS THE ONLY OPTION.

ALTHOUGH A PAVEMENT-GRAZING GARMENT WILL ALWAYS BE A SHOWSTOPPER, THERE ARE TIMES WHERE A DIET OF BUSINESS-ELEGANCE AND STRUCTURED-TAILORING JUST FIT THE BRIEF BETTER. 

THE STYLE PROPOSITION IS NOTHING NEW, THOUGH. WOMEN HAVE BEEN DIPPING THEIR TOES INTO THE PROVERBIAL WATERS OF QUALITY TAILORING AND POWER-DRESSING FOR DECADES. FROM JULIA ROBERTS IN THE 90’S TO THE FORMIDABLE CATE BLANCHETT DURING AWARDS SEASON. BUT THE QUESTION REMAINS: HOW DO YOU WALK THE LINE OF SARTORIAL AUSTERITY YET REMAIN RESOLUTELY FEMININE AT THE SAME TIME?

THE ANSWER MAY LIE IN WHAT CAN BE GLEANED FROM EITHER SIDE OF THE FASHION BINARY. 

NOW, THERE’S A REASON A BLAZER AND TROUSER HAVE REMAINED A CORNERSTONE OF MODERN FASHION- THE COMBO’S ABILITY TO TRANSCEND CONTEXT AND ENVIRONMENT HAS LED IT TO LOOK DOWN ON THE VERY CONCEPT OF ‘TREND.’ DAYTIME COFFEE MEET-UPS THROUGH TO THE DRESSY NIGHT OUT: AS A FASHION FOUNDATION, IT TRULY IS THE VALEDICTORIAN OF THE CLASS.

PERFECTING THE UNION BETWEEN FUNCTIONALITY AND STYLE, THE WELL-TAILORED PIECE HAS CENTRED THE MODERN WOMAN AS ITS MUSE. IT IS COMPOSED AND FULLY UNDERSTANDING OF A LADY ON THE MOVE.

LIGHT AND VAPOROUS FORMS ARE FAVOURED, ALL WHILE ASSERTING THAT ACCESSORISING NEED NOT STOP AT THE EARS.

IT SAYS, WITH CONVICTED ASSURANCE, ‘I AM CAPABLE,’ YET ALSO CAPABLE OF BEAUTY. 

SMART-TAILORING IS ABOUT BEING INSOUCIANTLY COOL ALL WHILE CREATING SPACE FOR PLAYFUL EXPERIMENTATION. THINK SUMPTUOUS FABRICATIONS AND TAILORED-CUTS. THE FORMER ALLOWING FOR A DOSE OF FEMININITY THAT IS BOTH DOMINANT YET SENSUAL. ONE CAN ACHIEVE FURTHER INTEREST BY SUBVERTING THE NEED FOR TRADITIONAL COLOURS, AND OPTING FOR A COLOUR THAT IS FLAMBOYANT.

AGAINST A BACKDROP OF TRADITION, THE ADAGE ‘OPPOSITES ATTRACT’ FEELS MORE LIKE A COOL BREEZE PROMISING FREEDOM FROM THE EXPECTED. BESIDES, SHIFTING BETWEEN THE MASCULINE AND FEMININE ONLY EXTENDS YOUR WARDROBE POSSIBILITIES.
