I chose Janelle Monae for a few simple reasons, firstly she rocks Menswear as her signature style. She doesn't do casual, it's red carpet, uber stylish always. Secondly it is such a high fashion look that I can only do it justice by using someone that is Style through and through.
So here's my picks to replicate her style
|Asos Tailored Contrast Lapel Cropped Tux Blazer |
|Asos Fitted Shirt E14.43|
|Asos Linen Tab Detail Wide Leg Trouser E39.36|
Alternatively if you don't want to go all out you could team the jacket and shirt with your staple black skinnies or a little more dressy with a pair of leather look leggings. You can also substitute the plain white shirt with something more you, like a white silk blouse or vest.
The outfit above Blazer, Shirt and Trousers can be all tied together nicely with the following neck tie.
|Asos Chiffon Bow Neck Tie E10.50|
|Asos MARKY Mono Leather Lace Up Brogue E45.92|
To rock it just like Janelle team the outfit with a pair of large stud earrings in a black, gold or white, just like is shown in the pictures above. The House of Harlow 1960 14ct Yellow Gold Plated Sunburst Button Earrings are fab.

So what do you think, are you Man enough to rock this style? Do ya'll like Janelle Monae's personal style?
