Farfetch Style Reinvention Competition


COAT MSGM - KNIT TOP RICK OWENS - HAT OFF-WHITE - BOOTS SAINT LAURENT - BAG SOPHIE HULME 

When Farfetch challenged me to create a blog post styling clothing items from the menswear category and style it into a feminine outfit, I was really excited. I borrow my little brother's clothing all the time, but he doesn't have any feminine items. So I figured it would be a difficult task to make a whole outfit of menswear looking feminine. Well let me tell you, there were plenty of beautiful items that I could use. A whole new world has opened up for me, and I'm even considering to buy something from menswear for myself. 

Now let me tell you a bit more about this look. I came up with the idea to turn a knit top into a dress and combined it with a simple but classy coat. The boots with high heels were amazingly from menswear too and to finish it off I added a black hat for some oomph and a red bag for some color. It's allowed to use one item from the womenswear so I used the red bag.

And last but not least I illustrated a model, wearing the clothing so you can have an idea how it would look like on a female. I love challenges where I can put my creativity into it and express myself in my own way. This was so much fun! Now all there's left to do is fingers crossed!
