I admit that every woman wearing her man’s shirt will look sexy, no fail.
But what about when she wears her man’s…everything? Well, a few things 🙂
Having said that, today’s long overdue lookbook entry features an outfit that I absolutely love for the Fall! It also celebrates the fact that that women can indeed, do anything, including wear clothes that were originally made for men….and make them look sexier! Yey girls! 🙂
THE MOTORCYCLE JACKET:
These first appeared in 1928 and sold for $5 at the Harley Davidson Store in New York. Since then, it was worn by icons such as Marlon Brando and James Dean. In 1970, the one and only Ms. Debbie Harry cut off the sleeves and the rest is style history.
Nothing mysterious about the origin of these boots! They were originally worn by working men on a construction site! Steel-toed Timberlands anyone? 🙂 When the first prototype for women came out, I do not exactly know, but they are surprisingly feminine for an originally masculine shoe. I love this pair of Panama Jacks.
“Blue jeans” made from denim or dungaree, invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss, was originally made for cowboys. Not until the 1950’s did it become popular among teenagers.
With this look, If the boot is slim around the ankles, go for extra long skinny jeans then roll them up a little for a slight cuff to go over the boot.
If the boot has a large tongue, tuck the jeans in.
BURNT ORANGE TURTLENECK:
Hehe okay, not originally for men, but you must add a touch of your femininity to your “all guy” outfit. In my case, it is a classic turtleneck.
It is officially cold in Madrid and all the fall colours are coming out to say hello!
I love the fall in this city for so many things! Mainly because it doesn’t really rain and it is quite sunny! :p
It is so pleasant to walk around and explore (I should make more time to do that!) Not too hot and not too cold…just perfect…Goldilocks would be a happy little blonde right now!
Not only that, it is the season where my electric bill is at an all time low! No heaters or A/C are needed to keep me cozy all through the night! I’m hoping it lasts for a while!
I will be posting some great fall lookbooks this season so stay tuned!
