Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: How to Wear the Sporty Chic Tomboy Trend
By Danielle Nicole

I hope you ladies are ready to switch gears because today’s What to Wear request is all about one of the season’s hottest trends.

Nina writes, “I am a Freshman in college and finally found a style I’d like to portray. I’m really intrigued by this tomboy chic look. It’s comfortable but cute. How can I pull this look off without looking like I’m trying too hard (and for cheap)?”

I’m a big fan of this look as well. The balance between masculine and feminine elements makes for a fabulous fashion moment. And this season’s athletic trend is all about chunky heels, perforated pieces, and mesh detailing. You probably already own a good number of items to create a sporty-chic look. It’s just about knowing which items to pull. To help you set up the proper wardrobe line-up, I’ve created a few styling suggestions to get you started. Let’s dive in…

Compliment a black mesh insert textured pencil skirt with a white sleeveless crop top and a chunky black heel.

To give the look an even sportier feel, swap the heel for a high top sneaker and throw on a black and white bomber jacket, a perforated sling bag, and a leather baseball cap. Lastly, add a bit of edge with a pair of Elizabeth and James Mies stud earrings and a double open arch bracelet.

For look #2, get comfortable in a pair of DKNY black and white two tone leggings and a Tosphop roll back crop tee.

Add a splash of color with a Leon & Harper yellow bomber jacket, a striking handbag, and a strappy sandal. Finish the look with a leather cap or a pair of retro round frame sunglasses.

And although this style was played to death last summer, I’m still here for the asymmetric skort. Dress it up with a varsity letter embroidered sweatshirt, a mesh knit tank, and a classic pair of New Balance sneakers.

Grab an oversized leather clutch bag and complete the look with a gold hoops and a sporty watch.

And that’s it!
Some of the pieces are splurges, but I hope these looks have given you some ideas on how to tap into the tomboy aesthetic.

    To piggy back off of Danielle’s suggestions, the tomboy aesthetic is one of the easiest to incorporate your own personal style and your own personal energy into what you wear. There’s little to no structure necessary to pulling this style off. Be comfortable mixing and matching pieces in your closet. Luckily for you, many fashion houses and stores that have invested their season buys into this trend. To pull off the tomboy look, you need these staple silhouettes in your wardrobe:

    Harem/Drop Crotch/Boyfriend Fit Slacks
    High Top Sneakers/Booties
    Denim Jacket
    Add feminine touches through including chunky jewelry, experiment with makeup, and great accessories.

    And remember, tomboy is not synonymous with athletic. You are emulating men’s street fashion and style. For ideas and inspiration, follow those that have aced this look time and time again. Follow stylephiles like June Ambrose and Marni Senofonte to gain insight and inspiration. Tomboy style is effortless, its interchangeable, its comfort, and above everything else its confidence. Good luck in your studies and your path to self expression. :-)
