Mix the soft and the hard to create a look that mixes masculine and feminine elements. Perfect for the tomboy–or any woman who aspires for a bit of adventure. Here’s how to get the tough girl chic look:
1. Start with a feminine knit blouse–note the drapey neckline and the ever-so-slight gathers at the sleeves.
2. Slip on a pair of rugged pants; a pair of jeans works, as would a pair of military pants.
3. Add a tough jacket–a peacoat with hardware detailing or a bomber jacket would work equally well.
4. Mix the soft and the hard with your accessories: a cozy knit hat contrasts with a chain draped belt, a buckled bootie, and a purse with heavy hardware.
