Boy Oh Boy

22 Sep

I have fallen in love with the blog Tomboy Style and am particularly obsessed with their grid on the tomboy uniform.

For whatever reason this grid really encapsulates what I love about clothes. There are so many variations – a detail here or a change there could result in a very different look or feeling. Looking through Tomboy Style, its also interesting to me how so many pieces are considered tomboyish, but really they are just classic. Denim, a white t-shirt, throw in a stripe…sure you may look like Shiloh-Jolie Pitt but its also classic tomboy style.

Here are a few my favorite tomboy looks from the gals that pull them off so well.

Emmanuelle Alt

Meredith Melling Burke

Jane Birkin

Lauren Hutton

Angelica Houston

I realize a lot of the photos are from the 1970s, but that just seems like a more boyish time. Check out Tomboy Style for the full experience.

    and my very favorite blanket term for all this comes from the French — garçonne, garçonette. Indeed. Now muss my half-shaved hairs.
