Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

The menswear trend has left me feeling a little less than enthusiastic.  Reading that "the more undone, the more you've done it right" scares me.  I mean if you want to talk "undone" how about rolling out of bed and throwing on your boyfriend's button down? Undone to me just seems sloppy.  So how can you meld this season's untucked trend with something that still looks pulled together?

The Cure: Suggestive Structure

Go for the roomy, slouchy, look, but do it with pieces that layer together well.  A great wide leg trouser is a good place to start.  Stay away from bulky tops and choose a simple silk tank.  Tuck it in, don't tuck it in, the feminine flow will work either way.  Top it off with a sleeveless blazer, some-what oversized but still structured.  Accessorize with a mens watch and a neutral shoe.  Don't be afraid to go with a heel or something slightly more girly, a strappy wedge or platform pump can add balance.
