Weekly Whistle: A Twist on Katharine Hepburn’s Menswear Style


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Wednesday! Ah–I did not think this day would ever get here! I have been excitedly awaiting this week’s Weekly Whistle, so that I could finally reveal this super fabulous ensemble! 

Katharine Hepburn in Sylvia Scarlett (1935) wearing men’s apparel. P.S. For 1935, I love the risks that were taken in this film! The acting, the plot, some of the scenes–all spot on! Plus…Cary Grant is in it *wink* Oh, Cary…darling *wink*

Inspired by the one-and-only Katharine Hepburn, I took a more modern twist to her awesome menswear style. Rather than pairing suit separates, I put classic black, pin-striped trousers and a blue, vintage-style button up together to create the basic look. To accessorize, I slipped into a pair of red stilettos, used a men’s necktie as a belt, and tossed on a tie necklace by BluKatDesign. This look is perfect for us ladies looking to mimic Katharine the Great’s style + it is great for us ladies looking to up our fashion game at the office *wink*
