Perfect Outfit: Sexed-Up Menswear In Four Pieces

We've always been fans of the menswear look, but it takes talent to get it just right. This NYC chick nails the trend, with all the main man essentials—a boyfriend-blazer, rolled-up pleated pants, tasseled loafers, and a prepped-out belt—that have exactly the right twist for that extra va-va-voom factor. So, if you want to dude it up without looking like, well, a dude, here's four pieces that are a little androgynous without being literally man-repelling.
Essential #1: Red high-waisted pants—These lobster-red pants are eye-catching without being straight up grandpa. Plus, the cute cuffs are perfect for dirty sidewalks and those errant Montauk waves.
United Bamboo UMS High-Waisted Pants, available at Opening Ceremony, $230, 35 Howard Street (between Broadway and Crosby Street); 212-219-2688.
Essential #2: Over-sized blazer:—Seriously, this should be front-and-center in your wardrobe, because it goes with most anything. Throw it over a cocktail dress to tone it down, or smarten up your t-shirt in a snap.
TopShop Shawl Collar Blazer, $120, available at TopShop, 478 Broadway (between Grand and Broome streets); 212-966-9555.
Essential #3: Tasseled loafers—Gain access to the gentleman's club, no questions asked. Our suggestion, wear 'em in so they get nice and beat-up.
Cole Haan Tassel Loafer, $100, available at Cole Haan, 620 5th Avenue (between West 49th and West 50th streets); 212-765-9747
Essential #4: Preppy belt—This classic is simple but still packs a punch with loads of class. Go from the East End to East Village for under $30.
Gap Boyfriend Belt, $29.95, available at Gap, 680 5th Avenue (between 53rd and 54th street); 212-977-7023‎
