I have always been fascinated with Androgynous Fashion. There is just something so special and sleek with minimalism, and looking like a total elegant stranger who means business.
I was invited to attend a mall launch, to which I will blog about soon, and I was really inspired to wear something plain, and very tamed. I will be meeting the CEO, so I thought this wasn’t the perfect time to wear my too-happy and printy outfits. Hehe 😀
Let alone my hair color scream for me! 😀
Anyway, do you remember this photo? This was taken in the Forever Francis Libiran Fashion Show in April.
John was pretty dashing that night, and this is actually one of my favorite Chinese polos of him. I asked him to wear this to the event, but he had other clothes in mind. Hmpf!
And then, I thought to myself, if he doesn’t want to wear it, why can’t I wear it instead? It would be totally intriguing and would be really fun to experiment since it’s a first time for me! 😀
So here is what I’ve come up with.
My strong affinity to blues right now is caused by my orange hair color. If you had the chance to check the color wheel, orange and blue are perfect for each other as they are complementary in the wheel, same as with red to green, and purple to yellow.
I had the polo tucked in, and rolled the sleeves up to my elbows. It was still big for my frame, so I just had to do some folds to make it look more seamless for my torso. I paired the top with my black skater skirt to balance the masculinity.
Since I want to keep everything lowkey, I opted for a monochromatic turn for the shoes and bag.
Still so proud of my Versaheel Snaky Reed-Somerhalder heels in Sky. My trusty Parisian satchel also made the look very put-together.
The braid was an expriment too. Had to do something with unruly hair. 😀
The whole look reminded me of K-Pop Fashion, since I’m also getting a few hints on this fad. I thought maybe a pair of glasses should cinch everything together.
I had this full-rimmed specs last year, and I’m drawn with cats’ eye frames because they are just too stern and sexy for my life.
However, John’s friends were too keen in the glasses department and asked me to try on theirs.
The left one is Ryan’s, fashioned with only upper glass rims, while Joseff’s, the one on the right has very thin ones. The former said that I should be getting these kinds of frames to suit my relatively small face.
Looking at these photos, I think he’s right. The full-rimmed cat’s eye glasses were occupying most of my head because the sides are thicker, while these two latter styles are very complementing, and gentle when it comes to accentuating my face.
I learned one thing that day! So yes, I have to buy something like this sooner!
Aren’t spectacles just subtle yet essential things to achieve either preppy or kpoppy looks? What do you think? 😀
Would you even dare wear a man’s fashion piece? Have you tried it? 😀
I wanna know! 😀
