Elegant probably isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of a hoodie. However, it is possible to put a sophisticated spin on man-style sporty separates. The secret lies in juxtaposition and balancing your proportions. Check out these images, created in collaboration with magic photographer Adam Flipp and modelled by the beautiful Bianca Cheah. Perhaps they’ll give you the confidence to try the boy-meets-girl trend. Or even inspire you to borrow (read: steal) a few pieces from your other half’s wardrobe in true boyfriend style!

Going for a loose oversized shirt on top? Balance the proportions by keeping things a little more fitted on your bottom half.

A fitted bodice top worn over a loose long sleeve tee creates the effect of man-style tailoring, but still shows off your waist. Add heels to this look to take it from day to night.

Hoodies are a great worn under an elegant tailored coat. Stick with neutral colours and masculine-inspired prints. A soft pinstripe is always great.

A chino-style pant is a great sporty luxe investment piece. Perfect for running around throughout the day and then dressed up with a heel and cami for night. I love a thin-strap detail for a subtly sexy feel.
