Our Favorite Masculine-Feminine Dream Wardrobe

One trend we never tire of: the perfect combination of masculine and feminine elements. So, we were thrilled to see the Hey Boy! Hey Girl! spread (see it here!) styled by none other than our dream-closet site, NET-A-PORTER. If you haven't seen it yet, here's a recap: One model goes head-to-head with over-the-top girly fashion (waist- and hip-hugging silhouettes, loads of lace) and her alter ego with sharp and tailored menswear-inspired wares (tuxedo suiting, precisely pleated trousers, and the like). This all got us thinking about our own ideal boy-girl mix, given the use of NET-A-PORTER's killer arsenal. Take a look at our favorite masculine-feminine pieces after the jump, and get inspired to create your own gender-bender looks!

A shirtdress is a super simple way to mix masculine and feminine. We like how this one has unexpected elements like bright-orange cuffs and bold black trim.

Lots of glitter, a fits-like-a-glove shape, and a sweet pop of a sorbet hue—in other words, perfection in a super-dressy dress.

There's nothing boy-ish about black lace. We like how this one is covered up in front, but features peek-a-boo sleeves.
