Personal Style 101: Tomboy Style


When it comes to style if you are more into what the boys are wearing but still want to keep the boys wanting you – you’re in the right place. If you couldn’t care less what the boys think but just love a casual tomboy style, you are also in the right place.

Tomboy inspired style has become more and more popular as of late. I credit the model off duty/ street style phenomenon that shows models “bumming around” and looking fabulous while doing it.

What if you aren’t a model, can you do it too? Of course you can. Here is how you can snag that relaxed, tomboy style all on your own.

What you’ll need:

  • Motorcycle jacket'
  • Sneakers
  • Slouchy white tee
  • Something plaid or camo
  • Ripped jeans
  • Anything baggy

Givenchy sneakers // Current Elliot jeans //Acne moto jacket // Trish Summerville tee // Ale Et Ange hat 

How to get the look:

Get Loose

Don’t be afraid to wear baggy clothing. Not only will you feel comfortable, you will look sexy too. Seriously, leaving some things to the imagination can be sexier than letting it all hang out.

Ditch the Heels

Shelve the heels and try a pair of stylish sneakers instead. Of course if you love heels, you can certainly incorporate them into your tomboy style look but isn’t the idea of comfortable footwear kinda too good to pass up?

Seek of Boyish Silhouettes

Borrow a thing or two from the boys like boyfriend jeans, cardigans, flannel tops, schoolboy blazers, and motorcycle jackets. Lucky for you, all of these great pieces are available in the women’s department.

Find an Icon

Get inspired by style icons that love borrowing from the boys like Rihanna, Agyness Deyn, Cara Delevingne, Gwen Stefani, Rita Ora, and Kristen Stewart. Emulate their style and you’ll be on your way to having an A-list tomboy style.
