There’s a new thing happening in fashion lately, masculine women’s wear.
Designers weren’t afraid to blend bold and strong lines unique to men’s tailoring into ladylike stylings.
For a while, I have been an obedient follower to the rule of elevated waist lines for an allusion of longer legs and properness like that of Duchess Kate. But Alexander Wang has proven me all wrong with the introduction of dropped waist. A masculine take on the female silhouette proves to be daringly groovy, hip, and more importantly, modern. She who sports the dropped waist is carefree and unbounded from the common cliches.
Stella McCartney’s tom boy is wrapped around in the sexiest pinstripes I have ever seen. Doesn’t that long pinstripe dress remind you of a special man’s wool sweater you have your morning coffees in? It hugs the body in all of the right ways, yet when you look closely, it’s not hugging the body at all. It’s seductive without showing an inch of skin, and confident without a hint pretentiousness.
The ultimate boyish charm came down Dries Van Noten’s runway. Relaxed trousers topped with the coolest way to tie a scarf. Who knew mustard yellow could look so chic paired with the right shades of blue? I am inspired by this laid back sophistication and can’t wait to spin off a boyish femininity of my own.

Give your jewelry box something to be excited about and fill it up with colour-drenched jewels this season.
Choose a colour you’ve never owned before, like that naive shade of turquoise, so tingling and fresh. I love how delicate the floral petals are pieced together, sweet and inviting. It would pair perfectly with a bright contrasting hue like mango orange or blushing fuchsia.
Go big or go home with this bejeweled web of rustic crystals. Its bronze undertone ages the chain beautifully, as if it’s lived many years and full of vintage tales. I love how elegant it is without a hint of pride, effortlessly comfortable in its own skin.
And what’s not to love of this quirky orange chain? It has a bright colour of happiness and an upbeat personality to match. Wear it with a Little Black Dress on Saturday and a cheery shade of crewneck sweater on Sunday and you’re guaranteed to have enough positive energy to carry you through Monday.
Whatever the occasion, whichever the day, make a playful statement by putting on something stunning around your neck!

Spring Fashion Weeks are over, which means my shopping list is finally complete. Except I don’t have a zillion dollars so this will forever remain as a ”wish” list more than anything else.
1. the Givenchy pale blue skirt screams edgy sophistication. Love the metal detail and its crisp texture.
2. hot pink Lanvin frock to light up any room, any occasion.
3. Nicolas Ghesquiere cuts the perfect pair of black pants for Balenciaga. Smoldering by night and sleek by day.
4. Bottega Veneta’s prim dress with demure florals in the chicest shade of nude
5. no words for the Prada sporty turtleneck. That one I may actually have to break the bank and buy
6. my favorite shade of intense blue in a pristinely tailored Gucci suit
7. Celine leather jacket that could become my second skin
8. I have never seen leather and lace married so well as they did in Jason Wu’s skirt
9. doing what Calvin does best-minimalistic tailoring
10. no other orange coat can be more perfect than this Victoria Beckham number
11. 12. horizontal stripes or vertical stripes? American Sportswear at its best
