Tomboy is not a trend

Piece of Me

“To define a TOMBOY requires searching far beyond the simple notion of a girl wearing boy’s clothing. Tomboys have influenced the expanses of popular culture in fashion, film, music, literature and beyond. And although the tomboy is often identified by clothing, what makes her wholly so is an inherent sense of confidence, rebelliousness, and adventure.” 

(Lizzie Garrett Mettler, Tomboy-Style-Beyond-Boundaries-Fashion)

The Tomboy didn’t get this definition only by the simple, functional and accessible style. The popularity around the Tomboy started with the breaking of gender stereotypes. When Marlene Dietrich wore her tuxedo in the movie Morocco by Josef von Sternberg and kissed a girl, the revolution of the androgyny started. After Marlene there were many more who contributed to this revolution, Annie Lennox, David Bowie, the photographer Lee Miller, Patti Smith, Joan Jett and nowadays Agyness Deyn, and there it nearly doesn’t stop
.
To describe Tomboy as only a trend is in my eyes lacking the influence it had and still has. Like Mettler says; “it expanses over the culture in fashion, film, music, literature and beyond” and that is exactly the meaning a Tomboy should carry.
If you want to try a Tomboy look for a day, here are the parameters: unconventional, casual, effortless -paired with a mindset containing constant coolness and adventuresomeness.
