Do you ever find yourself growing tired of your wardrobe? Are you an occasional sneaker type of girl? Are you over your day to day girlie glam ensembles and need a change? Well girlies, you are not alone.
Tomboy chic is a common fashion forward statement where many fashionistas are making their own rules for bomb eye-catching outfit choices. As seen on Instagram, celebrities such as Tracee Ellis Ross, Eva Marcille, Zendaya, and Gabrielle Union are known for their versatile looks. As women and lovers of the fashion world, it’s important to always switch up and add spice to your looks at all times. Boring is never in style!
Waking up and not feeling the cliche floral dresses and six inch stilettos of the world, should not be a daily dilemma when shuffling through your closet. Deciphering between tomboy versus glam chic is not as complicated as you think. It’s not that you’re necessarily ready to commit to a head to toe menswear inspired look, but you want to still add a touch of glam to set the tone of your day. This is what we like to call tomboy chic apparel.
To achieve this aesthetic, you need an ideal balance of menswear pieces. You can borrow pieces that define you from your man’s closet or your male bestie/fashion advisor. After all, an outfit doesn’t really stand out if it’s not countered by something unique that you wouldn’t normally pair together.
Still having trouble putting together looks? Well, we at EGL are happy to help. Here are 5 tips to turns heads when pulling off tomboy glam.
This sneaker style looks best when combined with something unexpected like a bold print dress or in this case, a matching denim set. Pair it with a dad hat for extra edge. You can pick your looks depending on how “tomboy” you want to go that day.
Sneakers, Pants and Bralette- TopShop
Cropped Sweater- Orseund Iris
A hoodie will add spice and edge yet it’s still subtle and cool. It can instantly make any street style fashion ready, as when pairing it with a skirt or underneath a light weight jacket. Adding drip to subtle pieces look comfy but still chic.
Skirt- Calvin Klein
Shoes- Jimmy Choo
It doesn’t get more menswear inspired than a classic pantsuit duo. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t still add a few fashionista girl touches to it. Add lace up pumps and and your favorite bag of the moment to complete the look.
Pantsuit- Oscar de la Renta
Shoes- Christian Louboutin
Earrings- Vanessa Mooney
Button Down Shirt
Instead of wearing your favorite button down untucked with a pair of distressed boyfriend denim, layer it underneath with a pullover sweater, buttoned to the top, along with a few other masculine tailored items.
*Side bar- Add a hat to spice up look, some oversized earrings with a cute Lippie!
Jeans and Bag-Topshop
Since jumpsuits aren’t always the most flattering of items, we recommend adding additional pieces to style your look. Statement jackets, printed undershirts, and accessories are perfect to slay this look and the day! The jumpsuit itself will simply be the cherry on top of an extremely fashion forward look.
Buttoned Trench Jacket-Yang Li
Bag- John Galiano
This is the easiest way to jazz up a simple pair of jeans and a T-shirt. The oversized essence of the blazer is what makes it ultra tomboy. Instead of buying one, borrow one from the man in your life, which is highly encouraged for this head turning outfit.
Blazer and Sunglasses- Topshop
Necklace- French Connection
