As you may have noticed, I am a sucker for all things plaid at the moment, whether it be a masculine(ish) pant suit or this great faux wrap skirt, I just can’t get enough of this pattern! I loved dressing this skirt up in boss lady style in an earlier post (Take Un – see it here), but I also really like the edgy, tomboy vibe of this look.
Those silver platform oxfords and the graphic tee are really what transform the look from a classic suit to something much more modern and subversive, even.
I like the contrast of the feminine, form fitting pieces like the skirt and the shrunken blazer, with the boyish details like the oversized watch and macho man sunglasses belonging to the husband, and the oxfords. Also, what guy wouldn’t prefer to wear a tee rather than a button down shirt?
The drop earrings and the oversized bow at the waist add just the right amount of girly flair. I love wardrobe pieces like this skirt that can be worn in totally different ways – it’s like getting two for the price of one!
