This fall it’s been all about channeling our inner boy. This seems odd since from day one we’ve been taught to act like a lady, but I can assure you this trend doesn’t do away with your elegance. I’ve seen girls hone this trend with boxy coats, baseball caps, suiting separates, mens foots wear and men’s watches. It doesn’t matter how you choose to incorporate your inner tomboy as long as you still add some feminine touches.
A watch is a staple accessory that usually can be worn day to day—for most of us knowing what time it is is essential. This Fashionista wears her Nautica watch with almost every outfit. I love it because it is not expected. This black, chunky watch with a large face has something of a boyish sporty look to it. She channels her inner boy while still keeping the rest of her ensemble light and feminine with her brocade flocked Free People jeans, purple Urban Outfitters shirt, kate spade necklace and J.Crew desert boots. If the chunky black watch isn’t the tomboy accessory for you why not try swapping out your feminine booties for some block-heeled oxfords, or maybe swapping out your cardigan for a structured blazer. These oxford booties from Anthropologie are the perfect tomboy accessory. They hone your inner boy while the colors keep the style feminine. Theory is my one-stop-shop for blazers. They are structured yet cut to fit the womanly frame. Try one out to spice up your tomboy accessories.
Channeling your inner boy can be hard if you don’t have the right accessories to do it. Invest in some and you’ll be rocking the tomboy trend in no time.
Spotted: Michael Kors always knows how to style for the sporty chic. Boyish accessories such as chunky black watches with colorful faces can be found in his fall 2013 collection.
