I'm nothing like a song

Urban Outfitters trousers, H&M button down shirt, Gap v-neck sweater, Aldo ballet flats, Marc Jacobs handbag, photos by Elizabeth. 

            I have always been fascinated by the combination of boyish and girly clothing. How can one pull of androgyny but still look feminine? It can be tricky, but when done right it's a look I absolutely love. I started by buttoning my shirt all the way up to the collar and layering it under a sweater for extra quirkyness. My new trousers seemed like the perfect pairing due to the loose cut and manly texture combined with a more feminine paper bag waist. I added ballet flats for an extra dose of femininity, and this gender-bending look was complete!
