Feminine Energy Added To A Men’s Button Down Shirt
You don’t have to sacrifice femininity when you put on a masculine top. By adding in girly details, you’ll immediately soften the look.
Layer a thin sweater on top.
This way you won’t lose your shape, but rather play with the proportion of fitted versus looser silhouette.
Add in lady like details
Bring in a scarf. But wear it as a belt. Tie it super tight at the smallest part of your waist. You can even add a big bow to add extra feminine flair! Alternatively, wear it as a neckerchief.
Layer with a cami
Put on a pretty camisole then tie up your menswear top. Pair with a high waisted bottom to enhance the look.
As I mentioned, this shirt is my son’s. My husband is way too big so his shirts would be ridiculous on me. This is a key thing to know…you don’t want the menswear to be too large. For me, using my teenage son’s stuff is perfect. It’s a little loose to create the oversized shape. But not too large that I lose myself in the garment.
