What do you get when sexy meets menswear? Janelle Monae. I am so happy that Janelle Monae is now the CoverGirl spokeswoman. She represents the fiercely beautiful woman that embraces herself and her personal style. She is a very talented singer but also happens to be a role model for young women like myself. You may have noticed the lipstick or mascara that she advertises, but even more striking is her signature black and white suit. I really admire her style. I admire all women that can pull of such a tomboy style and still look feminine and sexy without revealing their bodies. Janelle Monae has really inspired me this week and I hope she will do the same for you!
She focuses on the pieces that are timeless, transcendent and always remain remarkable. I think she just pulls this off so well because her classic men’s tuxedo is girl-ified. Her uniform usually has an oversized bow tie or sparkles. To make herself look stunning she tops off her outfit with a classic red or pink lip and goes full on in the eyes, with black liquid eyeliner and long lashes. Janelle looks so glamorous and beautiful that she is always a show stopper, even in an art gallery.
Janelle is an independent spirit. Through her bold style, she exudes confidence. Without a cocktail dress or butt-tight leggings, she pulls off an awesome look. Her classy, outside-the-box clothing emphasize inner beauty. At her concerts, Janelle encourages her audience members to be true to themselves. If you want to be like Janelle then start by embracing your inner beauty. Then develop your own style and try to balance feminism with menswear like the ladies below.
Her look is easy to achieve with some basic pieces paired with retro accessories like big vintage earrings, bold pins and funky bow ties. Try to pair slouchy trousers with a delicate chiffon blouse. Or go for your fave blazer, oxford shirt, or boyfriend’s shirt ;). Girls, don’t be afraid to wear a tie or bow. (I believe in you.)
