Menswear Chic: Inspired by Gabryela Shot by Mona Chammas of Geeky Chic

Mixing masculine and feminine is one of my favorite ways to look chic on the day-to-day. There isn’t any woman who won’t look pulled together, yet effortless when it is done right and it always reminds me of Diane Keaton in “Annie Hall”.

Geeky Chic is a street style blog to become familiar with.  Mona Chammas is the brains behind the blog as well as behind the lens and she shoots some pretty stylish and inspiring people on the streets of Toronto.

Gabryela is one of her newest subjects and has it all from beauty to style. I love her edgy haircut, but I love her menswear-inspired look even more. It has a vintage feel from the striped shirt and lion crest belt to her rolled high-waisted trousers. Everything about the ensemble is magnetic and immediately made me want to run to my closet to try to find what I owned to recreate it. Below are some pieces you can add to your fashion arsenal to do as such.

Jenni Kayne’s Zip Pocket Blazer ($750) is a definite investment piece that you will wear all-year round with jeans or mini skirts. A nautical-inspired striped tee is a wardrobe essential and Blue Life’s Stripe Trapeze Top ($78) is perfection. Patterson J. Kincaid makes great pieces at affordable prices and the Alexander Twill High Rise Pants ($148) will look amazing worn straight or rolled.

Lions are symbols of strength and courage, so carry those around with you all day by wearing Ashley Pittman’s Lion Horn Medallion ($345). I wear an infinity scarf almost daily and Vince’s Striped Infinity Loop Scarf ($140) is a must-have for transitioning in between seasons. Made Her Think makes some of the hottest accessories in the industry and the Daphne Bag ($638) is a great crossbody style.
