Sometimes all it takes to turn a bad day around around is a change of style. I consider myself girly majority of the time but I really enjoy androgynous pieces that make me feel completely different about myself. Inspired by the design aesthetics of Comme Des Garcon, I chose to stick to the androgynous side today, playing with structured pieces that are super functional.

The unique combination of polka dots and contrast piping on the shirt is graphical and playful. As much as I appreciate plain basics, patterns never fail to add a little something to my outfit. Polkadots dominated many of Rei Kawakubo's works and hence and I think the overall look of this outfit reminded me of her. I couldn't help but to add a necklace whenever I'm wearing collared shirts. The subtle peek of jewelry is strangely satisfying. Who else is guilty of this?

I let the shirt stand out by keeping my pants simple. A pair of black cigarette pants is essential to any androgynous get up. I especially love the zip detail at the ankles which are edgy and effortlessly shows off your shoes. Im wearing a gorgeous pair of pointed block heels by Charles & Keith. Not necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but it certainly deserves a second glance on the streets!
