Tomboy Style: The Denim Shirt
THE DENIM SHIRT
“I define tomboy style in equal parts style and substance,” writes Mettler. Though a tomboy is often initially identified by her choice of dress, Mettler is adamant that such style is informed by a “sense of confidence, rebelliousness and adventure.” A denim shirt, then, is our first go-to item. No longer reserved for cowboys, its versatility has proven itself an essential tomboy staple. Layer it with jeans, buttoned up to the collar, tucked in or twist tied in the front, and loop a red bandana haphazardly around your neck. Better yet, wear it faded, bleached and oversized à la Isabel Marant.
