Alicia Keys Puts Her Edgy Spin on Menswear
alicia-keys-
Alicia Keys makes menswear look cool in this downtown look. She goes for layers, but not anything too loose as to be able to show off her figure. An olive green button down is the base topped by a slimmer fit gray sweater. By keeping each of her layers light, she doesn’t add bulk to her frame. Also, by keeping her shirt length shorter, it doesn’t look dowdy and it emphasizes her feminine curves.

She adds on some edgy leather extras which adds instant style to her outfit. The button down and sweater left on their own would have resulted in a much different style, but the leather and knee high black boots helps toughen up the look. Leather pants are a more risque alternative than normal leggings and a motorcycle jacket is one of this season’s must haves. She is able to pair leather on leather without it looking overwhelming because she breaks up the outfit with more neutral, softer pieces.

The sleek, short hairdo that Alicia has been rocking is kept simple in a bob with a deep side part. Her chin length hairstyle is a breath of fresh air for the star who usually has big curls, intricate braids or funky hats adorning her head. A hairstyle like this is fuss-free, but still allows her to have a polished edge. Coral lips and neutral-based makeup allow her natural glow to shine through.

Alicia Keys always looks comfortable in her own skin and that is noticeable no matter what she is wearing. Here she shows that menswear can still be worn with a girly twist while layering in a way that flatters her body.

@vamp1967 I agree. I like it because she didn't make it bulky at all. She still looks streamlined. This comment has been removed.
