Edgy. Sexy. Seductive. Confident.
A real woman doesn’t need to prove her femininity with girly style. She doesn’t need a string of pearls to feel sexy. She doesn’t need a lacy top or to show a hint of skin to be seductive. Her confidence and natural sex appeal defines the clothes, not the other way around. She feels secure in collared shirts. People know she’s the boss in fitted suits. No one tells her “no” after catching her eye under the rim of her hat. She doesn’t give herself away because she doesn’t need to. She’s the queen of her universe and everybody knows it, because with menswear, it’s all about owning the look
