oliviataylor 's thoughts:

I decided to experiment with a more masculine look and I am pretty pleased with the results.. I usually tend to avoid such looks because my legs are (sadly) NOT 3 miles long and I think playing with menswear inspired looks at a shorter stature tends to become a little tricky. Perhaps I am just overly paranoid in my philosophy, but I generally find myself agreeing when I do attempt to experiment with the matter.

I think the key is really playing with proportion and keeping the shoes feminine. Perhaps some can use a loafer or a cute oxford, but for me, I need the extra height and femininity! I just tucked a casual low cut blouse (again, another small feminine detail) into some basic low rise work pants. That alone was too masculine of a proportion for me so I added this long camel and black trench. Now.. I know the coat itself is very masculine, but somehow, it somewhat negated the masculinity of the white and black work-wear. I believe it to be in the length.. the long hem of the coat definitely breaks up my long torso.

You can see more of this look on my blog here:
