Tomboy meets ladylike !

Sharp tailoring , suiting and pinstripes are the way to work the Tomboy meets Ladylike trend .

This trend is all about striking a balance between masculine and feminine . Whether it’s a masculine tuxedo suit , a structured blazer , wide legged pinstripe trousers or a fitted pencil skirt , these pieces demand a feminine twist – perhaps a demure and elegant pair of court shoes , a silk blouse , pussy bow neckline or an intricate brooch .

I fell head over (erm) heels for these chic mint pointed court shoes covered with intricate lace work , available here at Rainbow Club and they complete my Reiss structured ensemble perfectly .

Avoid jackets that are too bulky and double breasted if you have a large bust otherwise you’ll look bigger than you are – keep your accessories to a minimum and feminine , pair these strong shapes with high heels for a lean and polished look .
