Feminine tomboy


I've developed a fear that one day, I'll be sitting next to some guy on the subway and we'll essentially be wearing the same thing. Avoiding a whole discourse on gender roles, let's just admit that the general population sees it as fairly strange when a guy and a girl are wearing the same thing in the same setting. Instead of rolling with that irrational fear, I'm rolling with idea that some men just have really good style and I want to steal it. 

For a classic menswear-inspired look with a feminine twist, I took rougher textures like denim and suede and paired them with a flowy chiffon top. To top off the masculine look, try oxford-style boots and a boxy satchel. Finally, add an androgynous watch to tie together the outfit.

  7. I am a big tomboy in my heart and I was even a bigger tomboy when I was growing up, my most childhood friends just treated me like a boy, since most of my friends were boys! :D
    Right now I am dressing way more feminine than back in the days, but sometimes I do like wearing garments that are a bit more masculine and comfortable!
    Great list, I would looove to have that denim jacket- it looks so cozy!

  18. Love this outfit. Every piece of it. What makes it most interesting, though, is the thing that does make it gender specific , and that is the black blouse, I agree, lets barrow from the boys. Plus, I LOVE that satchel. Sometimes i shop men's for a satchel like that!
    Your writing is sterling!
