à la garçonne Boyish Style

Style and femininity, tailored and oversized items, and the new androgynous elegance. 21 September 2015

We all happened, almost everyday, to wear something stylish and comfortable, at the same time, that allows us to face our daily tasks, with elegance and practicality.
As women, we are often so busy that we don't even have the time to change clothes to have a drink with our friends, and we all know how tight-fitting clothing and high-heeled shoes may be pesky after a work day.
But now we can stop worring about it: the answer to our problems has come and is: Boyish!
The first to teach us a great lesson about it is the unique mademoiselle Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, who challenged the traditional clichés and reinterpreted the idea of woman that people used to have at the period, since they needed to be practical and dynamic to replace the men who were fighting in the war zones.
Later Yves Saint Laurent, following in the Cocó Chanel's footsteps, debuted in the 70's with the first tuxedo for women. In the 80's Giorgio Armani made the pants become the emblem of the power look for the new rising business woman.
And this is how nowadays our wardorobe welcomes with nonchalance boyfriend pants, jackets, oversized sweatshirts and sneakers.
The trend of the moment is a sporty mix with romantic and femenine details made of pants in all their declinations, that thanks to their suitability and versability, turn into a must-have: the multi-pocket model with waist band, the culotte just under the knees or even longer, the wide leg pants in jersey.
In addition to the classic black and white, we say absolutely yes to colours as well!
It's all about semplicity and creativity!And now what about some tips? Here's our outfit proposals that will make your boyish style even more glamour!
