Ladies, we need to talk.  I know it would seem that we have so many stores to choose from that we really don’t need any more styling choices in SL, but while shopping with my partner on a recent excursion, my eye was caught by a cute hip bag at a “men’s” store.  This got the old brain working;  What was I missing out on by only shopping in “ladies” departments….

Now, I am the girliest of girls.  Nothing is too frilly, blingy, lacy or pink enough for me, but check out some of these awesome finds that are male inspired.

In look 1, I follow the current trend of wearing men’s suits.  This suit from Designing Nicky Ree is for women, but is paired with a men’s top hat , cane, pocket watch and pinky ring.  The pose is a male pose too.

In look 2,   Men’s clothes can be great for casual looks or when you want to appear understated.  The hat, hair, sweater, shirt, and pants were all bought in men’s departments or stores.  The pose is a male pose in the pool table.

In Look 3,  Men’s things can be great when you want  your look to make a strong, hard statement.  The  hair, necklace, jacket, shirt, hip bag, drum case and pants are all men’s clothes.   The pose, again, is mens.

In look 4   I think most guys would agree that  there are few things sexier than women wearing their shirts :)  The shirt, shorts and cuff links (with color changing cuffs) are mens .

This is just the tip of the ice burg.  There were tons of wonderful clothes, accessories and poses I found in men’s stores.

Moral of the story -  Maybe we should all just “MAN UP”!
