Female dandy: how to wear this trend.

Perfectly diverging away from the “Lady fashion”, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent and Giorgio Armani brought the trend of dandy-suits – double-breasted jackets in a small strip. Sometimes completed with a fedora hat, the ladies suits copied men’s in every detail, placing a new emphasis on the gender paradigm. The female dandy look requires a modern aesthetic full of feminine touches such as a structured blazer, Oxford brogue, bow tie necklaces and billowing white shirts.

How to choose the suit for you?

Thanks to this years collection the suit designs for that masculine look is  fabulous. It’s more about what image you want to portray?
Suits – Make sure you buy the complete suit. Be preprepared for the trousers to be far too long. Get them taken up. The  key is that the suit fits across your shoulders. It’s not about the fitted look here it’s about how it fits on your shoulders first.
Materials - Whatever suit you go for being, velvet  tweed or silk choose the right fabric colour that looks good on you. This season it’s about very dark colours.
Shirts –   I would go for very feminine colours, pink, purple or red. The key here is the colour of the undergarment your choose.  I would choose shirts with  lace or loads of frills.  Ruffle flouncing shirts are perfect with these types of suits. The fitted the better especially when you take off the jacket, the rest of your outfit will still look masculine.
Belts - The tip to achieve this look is the best way to gird the waist. So with the help of belts is to refine the figure of the woman and give the masculine look is sought, not forgetting your feminine style, you can enter the dandy fashion trend!
Shoes to wear should be classics, oxford lace-ups, loafers, fringed moccasins or ankle boots.
