WHY WE LOVE IT
The hallmarks of sharp tailoring, a dash of androgyny, and the buttoned-up air of danger result in a formidable balance of eyes-right polish and unspoken tease that's hard to conquer.
HOW TO WEAR IT
Choose the most striking piece you desire, then soften its strict lines: Note the feminizing effect of Ferragamo's sensuous blouse or Altuzarra's top.
