Our Guide To The Best Tomboy Pieces – SS12
At Chloe’s Spring Summer 2012 show, Clare Waight Keller’s boy meets girl collection juxtaposed fiercely feminine Broderie Anglaise with wide-legged, technicolour trousers to give the tomboy trend a different dimension. Follow suit and scour the high street for summery shirts – embellished collars, floral prints and cut-out detailing will give androgynous trousers feminine appeal.
Ticking off the tomboy look with turn-ups and a chunky waistband, these pleat-front trousers from New York label Alice + Olivia have been given a feminine twist with coral coloured silk.
A Red wardrobe favourite for its clean, pared-down lines, high street store Cos has nailed the tomboy trend this season. A sartorial staple, the store’s boxy blazer will give denim jeans, pencil skirts and other wardrobe basics a masculine spin.
Team with everyday accessories in similarly muted tones for added polish.
A clear high street hit this summer, smoking style slippers make the perfect partner to the boyish look. Supremely affordable, this studded style from Zara will look equally chic worn with tailored trousers or paired with pencil skirts.
When channelling tomboy dressing, the draw is in the details. With their figure-flattering wide legs and drawstring waistband, these linen trousers from Eskander are top of our fashion hit list.
Keep your upper half streamlined – a form-fitting vest or a classic t-shirt cut to showcase your shape is the best style to select.
Take heed and try teaming tailored pieces in sugary shades with boyish brogues, portfolio oversized clutches and skinny waist belts. Accessorise with long layered necklaces to add a shot of girly glamour.
The tomboy trend is all about an androgynous aesthetic – with their boyish cut and pale salmon shade, Mango’s smocked waist trousers embody the boy meets girl fashion trend.
Finished with a playful pocket, Boy. by Band of Outsider’s cotton blend shirt is your fastrack pass to tomboy chic.
As spotted backstage at Diane Von Furstenberg’s spring summer 2012 show, oversized clutches are the new way to tote your every day essentials while simultaneously softening tailored trews and boyish blazers.
Add ASOS’ buttery soft portfolio clutch to your accessory arsenal – whether you sport your wide legged trousers with high heels or flat pumps, a masculine-inspired bag will keep you looking glam on the go.
With its mannish jacquard print, Warehouse’s boyfriend blazer offers an affordable, yet super stylish, way to tap into the trend.
