Fashion Feature: Girls will be Boys
Finally a trend we don’t need to buy a new wardrobe for because the basics are no doubt already in the cupboard. The aim of the game is effortless dressing, keeping it comfy and taking inspiration from menswear whilst keeping the girly twist.
In the 1950s the term ‘tomboy’ was applied to a wild girl who acted like a spirited or boisterous boy and we like that sound of that! Since its incarnation the tomboy has had many periods in the spot light and we are pleased to embrace it again.
Here are our top tips on how to achieve the look:
TEES ARE YOUR FRIEND – LOGOS, SLOGANS AND BAND TEES
CARVE SHOP £14.95
RIP CURL £29
TRAINERS OR SCUFFED BOOTS TO GRUNGE IT UP AND DON WITH A FUNKY PAIR OF SOCKS
EMBRACE THE DENIM – FROM SHIRT AND JACKET TO WAISTCOAT AND BOTTOMS AND DON’T BE AFRAID OF A LITTLE DOUBLE DENIM ACTION
