Androgyny: What Sara Wore


Green blazer: Topman Sale / Cream jumper: Charity Shop / 
White linen shirt: Charity Shop / Black skinny jeans: Primark / 
Belt: Primark / Tapestry bag: Charity shop / Black loafers: Garage Shoes

Trend: Androgynous 
Adjective: having both masculine and feminine characteristics (In fashion terms, not hermaphroditically...) 
Key trend pieces: Blazers, shirts, waistcoats, fitted trousers, skinny jeans, loafers, chelsea boots, brogues.

I stumbled across this blazer style jacket in the Topman Sale for £25 a few weeks ago and I could not resist buying it. It is certainly the key piece that ties the look together and adds the necessary masculinity. This is counteracted by the bead detailing around the neckline of the jumper and the floral bag, but combined with a buttoned-up shirt and loafers I think it makes for an eclectic mixture. The dark colours are softened by the jumper and multicoloured tapestry on the bag. 
I can guarantee this will be my go-to trend for the Autumn/Winter season, and I am excited to experiment and generally continue defying the 'gender rules'. 

Good tailoring and a close fit can still be sexy and feminine - it's all about the balance.
