Sweats suit

Grey houndstooth blazer from Banana Republic / Grey jogging pans from Winners / Crystal statement necklace from Banana Republic / Boxy bag from Forever 21

Up until this year, I have rarely been seen wearing sweatpants. Absolutely never in public, never when I was living on campus, even my roommate expressed shock the one time she caught me wearing sweatpants in the apartment. But all that has changed now. Now that sweatpants (or jogging pants, if you want to play semantics) have been deemed trendy, I can't remember how I've gone so long without comfy pants. And they're so easy to dress up. I just throw a blazer on and I'm good to go to work. I'm an office drone who sits for 95% of the time anyway. Who's gonna really take notice of my pants? As long as it's business on top, right?

Feminine tomboy

I've developed a fear that one day, I'll be sitting next to some guy on the subway and we'll essentially be wearing the same thing. Avoiding a whole discourse on gender roles, let's just admit that the general population sees it as fairly strange when a guy and a girl are wearing the same thing in the same setting. Instead of rolling with that irrational fear, I'm rolling with idea that some men just have really good style and I want to steal it. 

For a classic menswear-inspired look with a feminine twist, I took rougher textures like denim and suede and paired them with a flowy chiffon top. To top off the masculine look, try oxford-style boots and a boxy satchel. Finally, add an androgynous watch to tie together the outfit.

Red all over

I'm not a fan of Valentine's Day, but I do kind of enjoy using it as an excuse to wear red. I'm a little indecisive on what to do this year though. Usually, I do a bold lip, but I'm kind of tired of eating lipstick since the first thing I do when I get to work is have a tea. So my next choice is a bright red top. I love the lace detailing on it, but the bright red isn't my favourite kind of red. I'm much more a fan of deeper reds like in this quilted bowling bag. But I sort of feel like I'm cheating when if I wear burgundy instead of classic Valentine red.

Yeah, when this is the big dilemma on my mind, I have too much time on my hands...
