Operation: Feminine Masculinity
It is winter 2011 and its time to shake up the fashion stakes and introduce one of this season’s hottest trends, androgyny.
Fashion followers worldwide have seen this trend grow and develop into one hell of a sexy look for the female population. The look swamped the catwalk, and is now making its way to your local high street stores. More recently spotted rocking the trend is the stunning Kelly Rowland on Saturday’s live X-Factor show
The trend refers to the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics and could not suit Chino Tuesday female followers more.
To get this look:
Take a tailored chino. This beautiful pair from Gestuz black ponk trousers at just £74 are perfect.

A contemporary and classic fashion pack favourite, these transitional, skinny chinos can be dressed up with a slouchy T-shirt for daytime or stilettos and a sheer blouse after dark or in the office. The stretchy make up of these Chinos ensure both comfort as well as close fit. These hard working trousers will be a valuable asset to any wardrobe.
