Step one:

Use one piece from your boyfriend/brother/father’s wardrobe. Choose wisely. Look for longer, oversized pieces that talk the Man talk. You can either choose the classic office shirt, a relaxed tee, his jeans, belt, coat, bomber jacket, scarf, cap, or even shoes – if the shoes fit.

Step two:

Choose something from your wardrobe that goes well with the mannish item. Whatever you like is allowed: a skirt with the shirt, a dress under the coat or jacket, a delicate blouse with the jeans or some cropped skinny pants with the shoes.

Step three:

Look in the mirror. What’s wrong with the picture? What can you improve? Does the style you have chosen matches your silhouette? Can the look be improved with a little styling? Like letting your shirt hang on one side, or tucking up the sleeves of the coat, or knotting the belt like a band, or folding the jeans in a slouchy way. Maybe you can add more details: a watch, a statement necklace or ring, a brooch.  Now look yourself in the mirror again and try to get used to the more boyish outfit.

Step four:

Get out of the house! You are ready to face the awkward faces! And yes, at the beginning you may feel weird or like people are watching you, but that’s just the thrill of experimenting.

Step five:
