the man in me

Every once in a while, it's fun to dress up like a man. Hell, if it's good enough for Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, then it's good enough for us! ELLE Hong Kong seems to think so, as evidenced by a recent editorial published in their August issue entitled, The Man In Me, featuring menswear-inspired pieces from Nanushka, sass & bide, Chalayan and and N. 21. When it comes to working a menswear-inspired look, the key is in the tailoring. Avoid looking like you literally borrowed your boyfriend's closet by choosing pieces that are fit for a woman's body, but tailored in the style of a man's trouser or a pan's jacket. Go for a very androgynous look by paring these pieces with men's style brogues and minimal make-up, or add a touch of femininity with heels and a smokey eye. And don't forget: whichever way you go for, make sure to work the look with confidence! Get inspired by this ELLE Hong Kong editorial and dress for the "man in you" this season.
