The play between masculine and feminine is a long standing interest of Dolce&Gabbana. Early on, the designers began to investigate the allure of a woman dressed in traditionally masculine items. Since then, rigorously tailored ensembles, which in a way add emphasise to the woman’s forms, and not swamps them into androgyny, have become synonymous with Dolce&Gabbana to the same extent as the body con lingerie inspired dress.
The tuxedo jacket fashioned with a strong silhouette cropped and with a masterfully placed button emphasises the female form. Cut above the hips, it highlights the curves of the back and the waist. The tailored yet cropped trousers also serve to bring attention to two very female traits, the thin ankles and, of course, the shoes. Girly accessories like the velvet and satin rosette lift the outfit and add texture. For a less formal look, the Miss Sicily soft anchors the tuxedo to special occasion daywear.
The longer proportions of the jacket also help hone in on the feminine take on this masculine staple. The silhouette is more feminine, and the ooc can be accentuated with a ruffled collar blouse and the must have rosette. For an evening look, lace accessories complement the rigorous lines of the suit.
For a high-octane glamorous look, this chiffon ruffled blouse teamed with skinny high waist black trousers is a winning team. A precious box clutch and girly heart shaped earrings with crystals accentuate the feminine angle of the look. While, in stark contrast to the soft, see-through chiffon blouse, a pair of masculine brogues are a linchpin of the Dolce&Gabbana imagination.
