Overalls, bermudas, sneakers, boyfriend jeans, boyfriend shirts, tuxedos, baseball caps… If you put together everything that’s in style right now, you’d find yourself dressing like a guy real fast.

How do you figure out the right amount?

I think it depends on who it is. Some girls can be super sexy in a t-shirt and baggy pants, even with a pair of sneakers on.

I find that for me, it’s good to balance everything out with a few accessories – and I think Yasmin here has it going for her.

Her overalls fall perfectly and aren’t too too big. The mix of prints is discrete but changes everything. The clutch adds the right amount of sophistication and the flip flops (I started loving flip flops but that’s a conversation for later) are so simple and show some skin…

A tomboy and casual look that totally works!

What accessories would you choose to add a little femininity to a boyfriend outfit?


PS: The clutch and the overalls are both designs by the always amazing Yasmin!

    Pour moi ce serait quelques bijoux fins, du maquillage, un joli sac et une belle coiffure. Que ça reste discret pour pas faire un trop grand contraste, mais en féminisant quand même :)

    Defenetely find the balance and wear masculine clothes with feminine twist , sexy pump and heels will bring the sexy in any masculine outfit although I happen to like the flip flop with meticulous pedicure. Hair , lipstick , jewelry and the way you carry yourself can do that too.

  • Quinn Cooper June, 18 2013, 9:14 / Reply

    I think most girls can pull off a tomboy look if they are confident about it.
    I love a good pair of overalls or boyfriend jeans with a relatively plain top, that is somewhat form fitting to balance out he silhouette.
    Sometimes when you put every tomboy trend together it can be too much and you end of looking like a skateboarder.
    Love the photo above, perfect casual outfit.

    Tout est dans la chaussure et le cheveu ! Je pense que l’on peut tout porter mais que si on garde des chaussures féminines et une belle coiffure (même messy), la féminité transparaît ! moi qui trouve régulièrement que je ne suis pas particulièrement féminine de base (si si y’en a qui le sont même en claquettes et pyjama, ben pas moi), et bien sur j’ADORE le style boyfriend, tomboy & co… alors hop une sandale travaillée et du cheveu en pagaille et c’est parti !

    I really like the tortoiseshell sunglasses on her!

    I tend to favor the extreme ends of the spectrum when it comes to masculine dressing. 1) walking the line of androgyny, if your look allows that, the ethereal boy look that Tilda Swinton pulls off so beautifully. 2) adding just one overtly masculine element to an otherwise conventionally feminine look. OR 3) looking almost entirely masculine but with a pop of femininity, like a red or pink lip with a severe, tailored suit.

    Let’s acknowledge, too, the difference between dressing like a boy and dressing like a man…

    I try to be careful with all those baggy clothes I don’t want o look like I gain 10 pounds, I just got a dress/overall that is defined in the waist, and I mix baggy jeans with feminine tops and heels to keep it feminine. I still need to watch for a good fit as I am curvy

    Pour ne pas tomber dans un total look boyfriend, je pense que l’essentiel est de miser sur un make up soigné, pourquoi pas un chignon & de jolis accessoires. On a dit ça, on a tout dit, non?

    While I cannot get on board with the overalls trend (I didn’t the first time around, either), I am jealous of those girls as above that can totally pull it off, and manage to look cute and stylish, sexy even. But? I am love, love, loving the boyfriend jeans. I pair mine with heels, always, no flats. Also, either a fitted top, or if it’s loose and flowy, it has to be sheer, with a pretty bra showing underneath. I think the idea for me is that anyone looking at me, at a glance, KNOWS that I’m a woman (who just happened to throw on her boyfriend’s jeans and roll out of the apartment looking effortlessly put-together)… ;)

  • Meghan June, 18 2013, 9:51

    Yes to boyfriend jeans!

    Otherwise basically known aaaaas: straight leg jeans.

    Which I have liked all along.

  • ladyofletters June, 18 2013, 9:51

    Yes, straight leg jeans… Since when did they become “boyfriend” jeans? I really can’t stand that, it’s so twee. Since when were loose jeans inherently masculine? So something has to be tight/floral/lace/high-heeled to be feminine? Dresses for girls, pants for boys? This is so limited.

    Je pense que nous ne sommes pas toutes égales, et que ce style va particulièrement bien aux filles déjà très féminines et minces… Et pour les autres , il faut donc équilibrer avec des accessoires féminin !
    Personnellement , c’est mon style , mais j’ai vite l’air cul-cul en robe et en talons et je suis donc obligée d’équilibrer avec des accessoires rock ou masculin …

    I was thinking about this just yesterday. After having lost a lot of baby weight, and still in the process of losing the last 15, a lot of my clothes are getting a baggy before I get a chance to enjoy them. I would generally prefer to wear a nice trouser and a simple t-shirt but if they don,t fit just so than I begin to lose my femininity.

    Ca dépend tellement de ce qu’on renvoie au naturel, juste avec un jean et un t-shirt blanc, sans rien rien d’autre.. Yasmin elle fait facilement femme et sensuelle, alors le Tomboy dénote sur elle, crée un contraste.
    Quand on renvoie du doux, du petite fille, du préraphaélite, et qu’on envoie par-dessus du petit garçon indiscipliné (tomboy), c’est ultra bof (cherchez la femme, quoi)

    You brought up the flip flops…..I live in Southern California and I live in flip flips or “flippys”. My husband is horrified by this and no matter how many pairs of Charlotte Olympias, Louboutins, Lanvins or Blahniks he buys me, I still wear the damn flips. I reason it by saying that they dress down my too chic to wear in So Cal outfits. I love them. I confess. And, I can’t stop.

    les running c’est pour courir et stop.
    J’ai developpé une espece d’identité depuis des années, depuis que je suis en 1ere en faite, j’ai commencé à porter des talons, des “vraies chaussures de femmes” et j’ai presque jamais plus mis de plats. Je fais assez italienne ( melange corse armenienne ), avec des cheveux longs bouclés, une grosse bouche et des yeux verts gros eins grosses fesses ( oui oui cliché qui peut vite faire nabi nabila ), donc jamais de au dessus du genou ou à peine, decolleté ok mais pas de moulant et decolleté en meme temps, pas de casquette, j’adore mais ca fait cagole sur moi, ha misère… je parle de moi dis donc la vieille meuf, bref tout ce qui est trop masculinisant me va tres mal aussi quoi

    This is the kind of look that looks cute on other women, but not me. (Self-knowledge is a good thing!) I am really tall, so overalls would just make me look butch – not what I am going for!

    The only thing I can get away with is a boyfriend jacket with a ruffled blouse. I do have a straw fedora, if that counts.

    Le style tomboy, ce n’est pas trop mon style. Même si Yasmine la porte bien, je passe mon tour pour la salopette. Les tongs, je ne suis pas fan, ça me blesse les pieds donc uniquement pour la plage.
    Sinon, si je mets un truc un peu “mec”, genre chino ou bermuda, je mets un jolie t-shirt/haut “qui se tient” (j’évite le loose avec le loose), je mets une ceinture (fine), des jolies sandales, chaussures (ballerines ou talons); tjs au moins 1 bijou; et puis tjs maquillée. Oui j’ai tendance à avoir des petits automatismes…

    i just wear my super long hair down to balance my largely-masculine wardrobe (my husband and i literally share a closet and always buy things for us to share). but if the look is quite loose-fitting overall, i always wear some dainty flats (like classic ballerinas or strappy sandals) to balance it out.

    I would definitely avoid flip-flops* in the city, so demode**, considering the nice and discreet opportunities for women shoes. In particular for this outfit I certainly choose some nice stripped light blue espadrilles.

    *Hope the next post regarding flipflops will not promote them in city, but just under the shower, in the pool and along the seaside.

    Oh, Yasmin Sewell! I adore her style! She’s so feminine herself, she doesn’t need any feminine accessories. I wear a head scarf and some red lipstick to add a feminine touch and I love to wear a bra top underneath. For me heels don’t work with my denim overall, but with boyfriend jeans they do.

    An arm band for an edgy, cool-girl look. Or a chunky, colorful necklace for a more-dressed look. Or a huge or out-there earrings, for the ultra feminine look.

    On one of those days when I feel fragile..or, not so comfortable with myself, I hide in boyfriend jeans or loose jump suit..light fabric overall, too. They give me comfort!
    I pair boyfriend jeans with some feminine t-shirt, perhaps embroidered, or with lace elements. I had contrast mint colour tank top under my black silk jumpsuit just the other day and statement silver accessories. What about nothing under the overall but sports-kid-of-bra? Or, cut off top to show some skin? I find it very attractive and definitely it takes away from being total tom boy.

    To me, a tomboy look can be sexier than any LBD. Some menswear tailored trousers paired with some brogues revealing a hint of ankle can be more suggestive than any amount of cleavage. Jewellery, a touch of lace or a clutch quickly add a flirt of the feminine. I try to champion this style on http://www.girlinmenswear.com – stop on by? x
