Muscle Shirt Made Girly

Heels: Nine West | Belt: Moschino | Sleeveless top: Blair | Bag: Vintage | Hat: Target | High Waist Skirt: eBay

I got this top in different colors from Blair, and their size small fits more like a very loose medium. So on me, this top looked like a muscle tee, with the arm holes a bit larger than what I’m used to! I kinda liked that it became looking masculine, though. That way the outfit doesn’t look over the top “girly.” To be honest, I don’t really wear stilettos much, but on rare occasions I will because they make me feel extra feminine. Do you like mixing feminine and masculine pieces together?

    The color blocking is great!

    This is one of those coordinates that look incredibly simple yet put together. I do love mixing feminine and masculine pieces… I’m a girly girl but I love darted trousers with soft, delicate tops!

    I like to occasionally mix feminine and masculine, but I don’t have very many pieces that are “masculine” right now. I used to love this military style jacket I had, I’d pair it with skirts and super feminine pieces. But I got rid of it because it became too big (a good thing, but still!)

    Such a cute outfit! I think the muscle tee goes perfectly with the outfit. Those shoes are gorgeous too! I don’t wear stiletto shoes that much either anymore. I have been buying flats or wedges like crazy…lol
    I do mix feminine and masculine pieces quite a bit. I think it breaks up the all too feminine pieces out there. :)

    I definitely love pairing masculine and feminine pieces…and this outfit reminds me a little bit of “supergirl”…which, in my books, is a good thing!

    Rachel G: Hehe, I do like mixing red and blue together because the colors remind me of superheroes :)

    Natasha, that is a “good” problem to have ;-)

    Mafalda: Trousers with delicate tops—yes! I often do the opposite, dainty skirts with boy t-shirts or slouchy sweaters!
