Cool girls have always borrowed from the boys. That rebellious spirit is celebrated in “Tomboy Style,” just out from Rizzoli and filled with raffish images of Françoise Hardy, Lou Doillon and others who, in their dress, don’t follow the rules. This spring, fashion inspired by men’s wear — dress shirts and shoes, suspenders, ties — is widely accessible, in part because it is more femme than usual. With softened colors and shapes, you can slip into your boyfriend jeans without looking like your boyfriend.
Yes, thanks, New York Times. I’m not trying to look like “my boyfriend.” My last boyfriend was wearing JNCOs and an ICP T-shirt. Sorry, I’ll stop bragging.
