The following is a guest post written by Rachel Zoe, stylist, fashion designer and creator of The Zoe Report. This week Rachel delves into the wonderful world of menswear.

When it comes to menswear-inspired style — or borrowing from the boys as I like to call it — I always prefer to find a balance of femininity with my look, rather than going for a completely boyish getup. Alexa Chung does this beautifully, so keep her in mind as a muse! To execute the trend yourself, just mix a few masculine pieces into your own wardrobe while remembering to complement tougher fabrics with softer textiles. For instance, I love the juxtaposition of a chunky military jacket over a soft, ruffled minidress. Also, don't forget accessories are key in any menswear aesthetic . . . an oversize watch, fedora, or briefcase bag can effortlessly shift your look in an androgynous direction. Ready to try it?
