How to rock your inner tomboy

Your guide to dressing like a dude (...but still looking like a girl!)

Hi girls!

Hope you've all had a great week, especially since school holiday time has finally arrived - how exciting!

Now, for those of you who don't know me too well, I'd definitely call myself a tomboy kinda girl when it comes to style. Don't get me wrong, I love rocking a party dress, but it ALWAYS has to have some kind of a tomboy-edge to it – for example, wearing a leather jacket on top. So since I think I’ve pretty much nailed the whole tomboy vibe, I thought I'd give you ladies some tips on dressing like a dude (but still looking like a girl!).

Tip 1: Find your tomboy style icon. Mine would have to be Leandra Medine from the ManRepeller blog.

Tip 2: You MUST have a white button-up tailored shirt in your wardrobe. Topman have great ones and they come in a slim fit which is a great alternative for girls and they go with everything!

Tip 3: Don’t forget the oversized man's watch – this will complete any tomboy look.

Tip 4: DIY your slouchy tees by cutting off the sleeves or rolling them up. Think vintage James Dean.

Tip 5: Invest in a tailored black blazer. Wear it with some denim cut offs and a white tee to instantly up your tomboy look.

Tip 6: When it comes to shoes, loafers and brogues all the way.

Tip 7: Sunglasses give extra attitude. Go for an all-black wayfarer – they're also a classic so you’ll wear them forever!

Tip 8: A structured bag is the way to go Look for something a little oversized and in a block colour.

Tip 9: Socks! Yep, I love seeing a little sock action so go for something with a cool pattern – checks are my favourite!

Tip 10: Most important of all, don't forget to wear your look with extra attitude and confidence!

Well, hope you all try this "dressing like a dude" thing. Sen me some snaps of your fave looks, I'd love to see what you come up with. Also don’t forget to write to me if you have any fashion questions at dollymail@bauer-media.com.au.

Till next week.
