You can choose to wear a menswear inspired shirt (complete with a tie) and couple it with a more feminine trouser in a vibrant color. For instance, a white shirt and grey tie can be coupled with a lemonade yellow colored pants to add more vibrancy to the outfit. Pair it with a belt, a pair of heels and super cool shades to complete the masculine, yet feminine outfit.

Suspenders were strictly relegated to men’s outfits, until now that is. A lot of women have started adopting this trend in their outfits as well. The trick here is to not go for those ultra-bulky suspenders that look like you are wearing overalls. Rather, choose subtle ones that still manage to add depth to your look. Use a sheer top (not too sheer though) and button it down it make it look more feminine. Complete the look with a pair of casual men’s pants to get that masculinity look while not compromising on your feminine angle.

  1. Use Vests to Your Advantage

Couple it with a really cool looking vest and you have an outfit that strikes the perfect balance between both styles instantly. No we are not talking about those gaudy vests that will make your outfit look bulkier. Rather, we are focusing on those sleeveless, body hugging ones that stop at the stomach.

A great way to add a feminine touch to a masculine outfit is to opt for a silk shirt. The loose flowing fabric will give that added sheen and softness to your outfit while a pair of formal trousers will lend in the masculine character to it. With silk shirts though, choose subtle fabrics and prints rather than bold, blinding ones. Also opt for full hand shirts as they give that playful vibe to the silk fabric.

  1. Invest in a Pair of Loafer Pumps
