(ABOVE) I like mixing soft, feminine pieces like this Ann Taylor blouse, with more masculine ones like these Ann Taylor jacquard pants.

Taking the Edge off Masculine Trousers by Pairing Them With a Softer Blouse and Bag
It’s amazing how just one item of clothing can completely shift the look of an outfit. Earlier this week I featured a post in which I wore a white polo shirt to make a refined knife-pleat skirt, structured bag, and patent-leather shoes look more sporty.
This outfit worked well in the summer heat and humidity, but it will also be a great transition look come September, when the calendar says it’s fall but the thermometer doesn’t!
