I’m a big fan of coffee dates. When I think of my favorite coffee shops, my mind conjures up warmth and texture. Taking inspiration from that feeling, I put together two outfits, paying special attention to texture and flow.
By making a few careful swaps, you can stay comfortable in what you’re wearing without sacrificing any style points.
Deciding how formal an event will be is something more of an art than a science in 2019, here’s how to mix and match to the find right look for every occasion.
Those of us with a football loving girlfriend, wife, friend, or coworker, know that from September to January — all conversations lead back to the field. Get yourself in the game with a versatile football themed outfit.
Introducing our new series: Basic Butch Style! Showcasing timeless masculine of center classics for every occasion. First up, how to master that rugged brewery aesthetic without looking like you just hiked there.
“I love classical tailoring but I worry that maybe it comes across as a bit stuffy and boring? I want to convince myself, and ideally other people, that I’m hot and I’ve got a lot to offer.”
“My early 20s was all about 1950s vintage librarian looks (fit n’ flare dresses, patterned tights, cardigans) but in the last year (legitimately writing this to you on my 30th birthday), I’ve found myself leaning towards a much more androgynous style.”
It’s time to celebrate the butches that make this world better.
“I’ve finally truly embraced myself and the fact that I’m pretty masc-of-center… but I have no warm weather work clothes that fit, and don’t know how to dress in keeping with my dapper MoC self once it warms up.”
Jokes that make violence appear innocuous is how we get dead.
I’m a tomboy femme who’s been stuck in boring clothes in the last several years looking to break out of the funk of wearing nothing but work polos and old Navy pixie pants every day. I need a work style that feels more professional and grown up, but still shows off a little flair and queerness.
Previously I’ve felt pretty comfortable presenting very femininely but recently started a new corporate job and I am SICK of having to wear the traditional slacks + top combo. That sparked the whole thought process behind reevaluating my wardrobe and since then, I’ve found that I really don’t feel like myself in very many of my clothes.
“Here I am, gaslighting myself, and all I want to do is buy some clothes.”
“I had a kid two years ago and have really struggled working out my gender after that. My body changed a lot in ways I did not like and I’ve been trying to come to terms with my identity as a person, rather than just my kid’s mum.”
“My style icon is Nancy Meyers’ interpretation of a middle-aged white woman after she’s decided to pull herself together sometime in the second act. Wow that is… I feel very called out by own self.”
Are you wearing a festive yet alluring butch outfit while reclining in front of a fireplace with a delicious wintertime cocktail? Hm. Well, we can help fix that.
“A lot of what I’m trying to evoke can be represented in the hosts of The Weakest Link around the world. Powerful take-no-shit femmes in suits, oh my.”
Some of you might be here because the weather changed and you need warm things, some of you are like me and can’t wait to buy shit for every season, and some of you just want to look cute and don’t know where to start.
“I want to be SEEN by that hot dyke in the bus, ya know? And also to feel at home in this fat, queer body that I haven’t felt good about for too long and that I love now but don’t know how to show off?”
“I can simply rest in this strange and beautiful world of homosexual daddies with expansive definitions of what it means to be masculine; given how raw and terrible I feel as I continue to come out as trans, continue to lift up the rocks within myself and peer under them, this is what I need.”
