Menswear inspired trousers are our bread and butter. Why wear lame gabardine tab front trousers, purchased in the same section of Bloomingdales as every other worker-bee in the office, when you could be wearing pants that would make Alexa Chung weak kneed? Paired with a sweater and button-down for work or a t-shirt and heels when you’re not stuck behind a desk, these trousers are office appropriate but have a natural coolness to them that is neither trendy or obvious.
You’ll understand then when we grab us a pair and wear them until the wrinkles can’t be shaken out with Febreeze and the seams start to give.

TOMBOY KC is a fashion and lifestyle blog written by actress Katie Cassidy and pint-sized real-life friend, Lynsey Eaton. Focused on personal style that is, well, personal, TKC is a place for smart and opinionated (read: sarcastic) women to join together and accumulate stilettos while collectively wearing their sneakers…everywhere. Self proclaimed nomads, when the girls aren’t traveling for work or buying two of everything (one apiece, you see), you can find them sitting on Lynsey’s couch eating pizza and drinking champagne in men’s pajamas while waxing poetic about the present state of culottes. Feel free to come on over.
