Girly Meets Boyish In Cambridge

Lace is normally seen as feminine or girly while boyfriend jacket is in contrary or unisex. But I think they are perfect together.

stylebyH2W.com -girly meets boyish in CambridgeI was talking with my very stylish friend the other day about how she manage to wear The Queen headscarf style so well. (You can see what The Queen headscarf style is in my post here. ) She told me when she wears this style, she always shows some legs. It is interesting that people seem all have their own ways of styling. It might not be same as the way we do it but it is always good to know and maybe learn something from the others.

Personally, I don’t actually think about the style when I dress up. I just pick up few things I feel they go and put them together on me. If I don’t look good in front of the mirror, then I change one or few things. That’s all. But if I look at my own Instagram with all my looks. I think I do have few “rules” too even though I don’t think about it.

  • Girly items mix with boyish or unisex items. Like the laced top with boyfriend jacket in this post.
  • Delicate and light material mix with chunkier or rough material. Again like in this post, lace mix with woolen.
  • Smooth texture mix with rough texture. You can see it in my previous post here.
  • Dressy style mix with street style. For example the style in another old post of mine here.
  • Even though I don’t usual wear much makeup. If I am going all the way feminine or girly, I will wear natural makeup. If I am head to tow unisex, than I would prefer stronger makeup to give a modern touch.

Personally, I like something with a bit of twist than girly all the way or unisex all the way. I don’t think it is not nice to have same style all the way though. It does look good on many people. But you know style is something very personal and subjective. The best way is just to stand in front of the mirror and see how you like it yourself.

Anyway, enough of blahblahblah, I am off to my manicure appointment. Can’t stand my broken nails for another day! Please share your style rules if you have any. x
