OUTFIT//TRUE TOMBOY CHIC

This outfit (to me) is the perfect representation of tomboy chic. My explanation below!

The full look: 

What you're looking at is a 3.1 Phillip Lim tee paired with silky Zero Maria Cornejo shorts and a silky Oak bomber. 

When dressing up this way - I say to myself it's all about balance. Yes, this look is shorts+ baggy tee + sneakers + bomber... BUT check out the individual elements! All have soft feminine flair. 

First the top: it ain't any ol' tee! This one was designed with tucks at both shoulders and at the right hip, to give it some pleating and folds.

Do you see how this design element makes for a softer look overall?

Now the shorts - SAME DEAL! These shorts have a gorgeous movement to them because A) the fabric is silky and moves when I walk - and B) check out the folds at the outside hem!

You see how it gives for a water-like flow? (Wish I could insert the eyeball emoji right here)

SHOP DRAPED SHORTS

Good draped shorts are hard to come by - these are all pricey but worth the investment! 


Before you go dissing my wedge kicks - please know, these are an original pair of Isabel Marant Bobbys... they are a staple, not a trend.

The bomber, from Oak, is made of silk and has super soft feel and look. Imagine this with a stiff jacket?
