Floral with tweed? Mixing Prints? Thick knits paired with something body hugging...can it be done? Should it be done? It CAN and creates a boy-meets-girl, all-American look that's become an unexpected fashion statement this season. When you think "tomboy" it conjures up images from childhood of skinned knees, hand-me-downs and spending endless hours on the jungle gym. But leave it to designers to re-imagine the tomboy perception into something surprisingly wearable, unique and very charming. Think girly pants paired with a totally non matching, oversized tweedy sweater and cute wedge shoes. Multi print layers with similar scale patterns in contrasting textures are a great mash-up on top and then break all the rules and choose something unpredictable on bottom.
Take a peek to see the tomboy look turned into something thoroughly modern and unexpectedly sophisticated.
