While the red carpet is usually filled with chiffon dresses in Hollywood, AnnaLynne McCord definitely knows how to shake things up a bit. The sexy actress has probably the furthest thing from a male’s body, yet she is able to pull off the menswear trend flawlessly.
The star of The CW’s 90210 has always been fashion forward on the red carpet, like the time she wore neon yellow nail polish. Although she takes fashion risks, she always looks very put together. Her many menswear looks are no exception.
Menswear has been a big trend the last few seasons, but it can be tricky to pull off if you’re not actually a guy, of course. It can be hard to still look feminine while rocking male-inspired threads. The key to pulling off the look is to wear girly accessories to balance out the rest of the outfit.
AnnaLynne frequently gives us a lesson on how to wear ties. She wore a sea foam skinny tie to a charity fashion show in October and paired it with a leather jacket, trousers, and fuschia heels. The contrast of the leather jacket and the heels, plus her flirty lipstick color, balanced the look.
A week later at a Hollywood movie screening, she was seen sporting another tie. This time, it was a loosely knotted plaid tie with a fitted white shirt, trousers with a skinny belt, and platform stilettos. The casual knot of the tie, along with her popped collar, helped offset the guy vibe. Oh, and her seductive makeup didn’t hurt either.
Then, in November, she wore a short, light blue version of the men’s accessory. AnnaLynne paired it with a short sleeve shirt, skinny pants, and red heels. Again, her girly makeup and heels kept her looking feminine.
AnnaLynne has also been spotted wearing suits, another big menswear trend. Boyfriend blazers have been all the rage and these looks take it to the next level.
In Beverly Hills at the 2nd Annual Variety Power of Women Luncheon she wore a well-tailored black suit. She wore no shirt underneath, added a draped necklace, and wore plum pumps to add a sexy factor to her suit.
Most recently, at an awards show for Spike TV, she stepped outside the box and went with a white suit. Little white dresses have replaced the LBD on the red carpet this season, and the white suit AnnaLynne wore is a twist on that trend. She looked white hot in a loose boyfriend blazer, flared pants, a leopard print clutch, and red heels.
AnnaLynne is able to pull off the tie and suit looks flawlessly because she accessorizes correctly. She also wears a great smile and confidence which you need in order to pull off menswear. She proves anything a dude can wear, a girl can wear better.Tags: 90210, AnnaLynne McCord, Beverly Hills, hollywood, menswear, Spike TV, suit, The CW, tie, Variety Power of Women Luncheon
