Can the tailored replace the gown?
When it comes to the award ceremonies, albeit the Oscars or the Grammy’s, big, voluminous gowns are awaited and more often than not, expected. When women choose to take a suit down the red carpet, it is out of the ordinary, different but exciting.
We wondered if the masculine style could replace the feminine ballgown?
The award ceremonies are no the only place we noticed a change; Paris Fashion Week was crowded with smart tailoring in nearly all the street style spreads. Maybe it’s a subconscious response to the evergrowing power of women or the continuous reach for equality that’s got us noticing the shift even more. Or perhaps its the expectation of wearing a dress that makes choosing something completely opposite a little more adventurous.
Can A Tailored Suit Still Be Feminine?
Wearing a suit can make us feel powerful whilst simultaneously striking the balance between fanciful and practicality at the same time.
The tailored style can work for all body types and when there’s so much anticipated from a ballgown, the simplicity of a coordinated pair can speak volumes.
They’re comfortable and effortless and yet our personalities can still shine through; think colour, texture and length. The array of styles we saw at the award ceremonies was endless. There were pastel brights, glitter two-pieces and lots of our favourite go-to, velvet.
How To Style
Pair with white sneakers and a loose t-shirt for a casual, ready-to-go look.
Try kitten heels, hair down with a little rouge on the lips for an evening outfit.
What would once be seen as unisex is no longer looked at in the same way; it’s simply another choice. Dresses may always be womanly, but what’s to say suits can’t make us feel fabulous?
Do we need to dress feminine to feel feminine?
Femininity is whatever we want it to be; confidence, comfort, power and strength. Whatever we feel like wearing is right, whether it’s tailoring or a dress for the ball.
So button up and join the ride, nothing is off limits.
