Feminised masculinity: street style

So the title is something of a contradiction, but this look – masculine pieces reimagined in very feminine ways – constitutes androgyny with utmost sartorial flair. Down to the hair, short and slicked and masculine-inspired, this outfit takes its cues from menswear. But it’s all executed with a feminine twist.

The pants are pink, the blazer bright and floral; the polka-dot tie and tie-bar could feel corporate if paired with a navy suit, but feel far from it in this ensemble. Add drop earrings and pink lips, and you’ve got yourself a look of feminised masculinity that’s both whimsical and sharp.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
