Inspiration Monday: A Hat

This time Inspiration Monday has chosen Cara Delevigne. Her black tie-scarf, black trousers and black hat have a men's inspired vibe, like many of the clothes from YSL. If you are interested in fashion  you probably know that Yves Saint Laurent created the Le Smoking tuxedo suit for ladies and pioneered minimalist, androgynous styles for women. He also pioneered the use of power suits and the pantsuit in modern-day society. (C)
I must say that my look has a more boho then men's influence, but I borrowed the burgundy color (and also the hat, which I didn't wear for a couple of months), from Cara Delevigne's outfit.

Hi Alena! Thank you for commenting at So What to Twenty!
Yes, your look reads more boho, but it looks good on you. I love the detail surprises throughout your complete look. The back of the sweater is a definite conversation. Nice!

I love the textures and your choice of neutral colors. The pop of burgundy is just the right amount of pop.
