Tomboy Details

By 7 0

I often think that there is nothing classier than a few masculine details in a woman’s outfit, and I am glad that a lot of designers seem to agree this season. Wearing some nice Church’s brogues or hijacking his dress shirt is the perfect move this winter. That said, this girl vs boy influence has been a classic since the beginning of the 20th century, and I can only applaud that. Let’s face it: the boys have some pretty great things going on there. I guess the key to successful tomboy dressing is an ultra feminine detail. A super high stiletto heal or a smoking hot red lip goes a looong way…
