Lust Must: Borrowed from the Boys
Is there anything more stylistically irreverent and completely contumacious than a borrowed from the boys look? From Yves Saint Laurent’s classic and super chic Le Smoking look to modern pieces like blazers, oxfords, slim trousers and brogues, menswear inspired pieces have been seen on every runway as of late from Marc Jacobs to Stella McCartney. Even the ever-a-lady Victoria Beckham has copped to sporting a slouchy pair of boyfriend jeans from time to time and has added a few luxe boyish touches to her insanely chic namesake collection this season.
My favourite way to incorporate a shot of masculine edge to my look is to slip on a big gold watch, with my ultimate dream pick being a Gents Rolex 18K Yellow Gold Oyster Perpetual Daydate. With a black face surrounded by enough diamonds to dazzle and the characteristically classic president band, this is the ultimate menswear statement staple. I’ve lusted after this watch for as long as I can remember, and my fiancé knows it’s my number one on my jewellery wish list. invaluable.com scores top points for not only carrying my ultimate Rolex time piece — as well as many other Rolex options — but for its incredibly huge selection of fine watches. Ranging from timeless Cartier picks to more decorative Chopard pieces that practically wear like jewellery, there is no lack of choice for any taste.
With that in mind, I’ve had lots of opportunity to conjure up visions of me wearing my Rolex, with my favourite being a total Borrowed From the Boys casual look. See my picks below.
