This past month we saw the release of the newest installation in the 007 franchise. When you think of the infamous James Bond character, the first thoughts that come to mind are fabulous tailored suits and gorgeous women. Now combine those two factors together and you have a trend that took over the Winter 2012/2013 runways. Celebrities from Janelle Monae to Ashley Olsen have joined the gentleman’s club this past year by rocking this exclusively male outfit with their own feminine twist. A trend that can easily be emulated as designers are beginning to cinch in the waist of their tuxedo jackets to cater to this androgynous look. Try pairing an oversized blazer with fitted jeans or even some high wasted sequins shorts for your very own bond inspired look this season.
