Boy Meets Girl

A day out on the soccer field seems like a good day to channel our inner tomboys. Yes, funny it may sound, but I'm sure all of you girls have somehow, at one point or another, felt that need for a break from all the frilly's and the dainty's. Or maybe, it's the other way around! Either way, we believe that there is just something about androgynous looks on women that no matter how simple and effortless the look may be, it just seems to look so meant to be and put together. In fact, the more simple and the more effortless it looks, but of course, with still the right amount of balance, attention, and experimentation in styling, the more captivating it turns out to be!

Not one for donning tight-fitting clothes? Why not go on and raid your boyfriend's or brother's closet! Menswear-inspired looks continue to be huge in fashion. It is quite versatile, as there are numerous ways to style it — grunge, chic, schoolboy, etc. Today, we prepared three looks borrowed from the boys...

An androgynous look doesn't always have to be so manly — boyish will do. No, not the skater boy or the bad boy either, but the maybe the school boy or the nautical boy. Pay attention to the structure: opt for loose pieces and ones that hang straight versus ones that hug tight. The top and the bottoms are boxy and loose, the color scheme stays light, fresh, and together, don't you think it makes for a look fitting for day on a yacht or a sailboat? Besides that, little details such as the shorts' drawstrings and perforated pockets bring more drama as well, but with its soft color, a nautical instead of a sporty look was achieved. Since the look can come across very plain with the lightness of color and boxiness of structure, accessories such as a statement necklace and a fedora hat are important to add a little flare. And of course, what says nautical more than boat shoes!

Another way to achieve the borrowed from the boys look is to simply throw on a jacket with studs and badges on it. Pair it it with suede boots in nude to achieve the illusion of having elongated legs. If the colors are starting to look a bit too neutral — if there is even such a thing — or a bit too gloomy, add a colored item or maybe even put on red lipstick to brighten up your look and maybe even how you feel!

Boyfriend jeans are the essential pair to lazy dressing. Because of the distressed detailing, they are an instant shift to comfy and effortless. They're easy to wear, loose-fitting, and basic - who doesn't want that? On the downside though, because they’re baggy and loose, boyfriend jeans can easily look very sloppy. But when styled correctly, for example paired with a chambray, they look amazingly chic and casual cool. You'll be looking laid back yet well put together.
