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…
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.
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.
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.
