Boyish Charm from Karen Millen

Designer label Vanessa Bruno completely nailed masculine attire in her Autumn/Winter 2013 collection along with a handful of other designers such as Karen Millen. The high-end brand has included this key trend in its latest range offering boyish tailoring that is impeccably cut to perfectly fit the female form in beautiful luxe fabrics and trims.

The mood is laidback chic with a slight edge flaunting a colour palette which is kept neutral and classic allowing for instant versatility so key pieces can be mixed and matched to create sharp looks. A crisp shirt can be worn with a leather pleated skirt whilst a tuxedo style jacket would feel right at home paired with a full on suit for work or a dress for evening functions.

Signature cotton trench coats feature tweed contrasts for an injection of heritage style whilst the use of jacquard gives garments a strong, sexy appeal. Sexy figure hugging dresses provide a subtle hint of femininity and can be seen in bold hues such as blue and red, two hot colours to flaunt this season, whereas monochrome in stripe form is the ideal masculine graphic print.

Of course androgynous dressing is all about the right shoes too! If you want a style with a bit of height then stick to ankle boots in suede or courts in high shine burnished leather but for women who want a break from heels, a loafer is your shoe saviour and will look amazing teamed with cropped ankle trousers for real masculine style.

Exquisite detail and beautiful shapes are aspects to achieve when embracing a boyish charm for AW13. Tailoring has been kicked up a notch and a number of accessories are available to give women more options for this ever-growing trend for diversity that wasn`t available in past seasons.
