Adrogynous Dressing Lanvin Style

Outfit: Tux jacket - Lanvin for H&M (male section); Shirt and Sunglasses - Primark (male section); Shoe boots - Market (seen here); Tights - New Look (seen here); Skirt - H&M, Bag - Vintage

Whilst browsing through the Lanvin for H&M collection, the thing that caught my eye (besides the exquisite one-shouldered cocktail dresses) were the male tux jackets. The tailoring of the jackets was of an exceptionally high quality for the high street and the silk details were beautiful. Whilst regrettably, this jacket is not mine (my Dad bought it to sell on ebay), I couldn't resist pulling it out for a blog shoot. The black lapels against the navy backdrop would not have been something I would have instantly thought of as being a great combination, however in actual fact the duo look incredibly classy. This has to be one of the most fantstic jackets I've ever worn.

Along with the tux, I went for an adrogynous look with a simple white shirt, black ribbon tie and rounded glasses - a pair spy-like in their nature and very similar to those Mary-Kate Olsen favours.

How pretty! I think you need to convince your dad that you would look better in it than anyone else and that you should keep it. Maybe a Christmas present? :)

woow I love love this look!

Claudia Paola. said...

This jacket is chic! Too bad you weren't able to keep it :( But it was a good idea to take an outfit picture with it while you still could. Sadly, I wasn't able to get my hands on any Lanvin products.. ah well, it wasn't meant to be. I like how you styled the androgynous look bc the skirt adds a twist of femininity. Love your MK glasses- you definitely pull them off :P
