Everyday Glamour has broken down the art of un-office dressing into four archetypes to work from, The Sensualist, The Chic Eclectic, The Tomboy, and The Luxe Bohemian. Identify your dominant archetype, develop it, then later advance to break the rules.
Welcome to Part Three in the Everyday Glamour Dress Down Tutorial Series!
Casual Archetype Three: The Tomboy
Think Some Kind of Wonderful on Lexapro. The Tomboy drinks a Guinness, reads No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy, and listens to Jack White and Drake. She wears Calvin Klein lingerie. She was recently overheard saying, "Let's chill on the roof."
How to get the look: The Tomboy wears her jeans dark or light, and either very skinny or very slouchy, with a waistline that is as low as you can go this side of the border. She wears mostly black and white. She has an affinity for zippers. Let's not over analyze. She wears the best fitting army pants on the market, (Aloha Rag makes them), with a leather Moto jacket by Helmut Lang. She's constantly on the hunt for the perfect slouchy white t-shirt. Her jewelry is simple hammered silver. She loves exclusive wedge sneakers by Nike but knows that the Isabel Marant ones are played out by now. Ha! She also wears Frye harness boots with cut off denim shorts in the summer. Oh...and sometimes she wears black pumps with her Aloha Rag army pants just to show that she is in fact a girl.
She loves: Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant, Frye, Balanciaga, Helmut Lang
