Welcome to the 9th edition of Friday Finds!
Brought to you by the amazing, beautiful and always fashionable Peacock Babes!
This week we are having fun exploring our "TomBoy-ish side"
The androgynous nature of tomboy style fashion is always relevant. Who among you hasn’t flirted with this look at some time? You might be surprised to learn that the word dates back to the sixteenth century, but it came into its own, bigtime, via the garçonnes of the 1930s Jazz Age, with women who adopted what Vogue termed a “trim and boyish” look.
You don’t have to actually be a tomboy to dress like one. The key to making this look work is to throw in just a touch of femininity, whether it’s via a slightly pointed shoe, a few undone buttons on your shirt, or some golden hardware on your satchel.
Boxy jackets and laceless combat boots tomboy style clothing will suit cooler days, while you can switch from day to night by swapping a blazer for a tailored jacket and pumps. That’s also the witching hour to add stilettos to sportswear to avoid actually looking like a boy, unless you want to, of course. Further enhance your girly roots by offsetting potentially masculine lines with cute floral prints, jewellery, or brassy buttons.
Get back to combat boots for a dream combo with leather shorts or denim cut-offs, or pair a sweatshirt and torn jeans with sneakers. Roll your skinnies and work them with a button-down shirt in classic tomboy style. Conjure up just the right image with overalls and a white tee, but subvert the look with a faux-fur jacket. Throw a hoodie over slouchy trousers and sneakers, or top boyfriend jeans and a loose blouse with a fedora.
