Just as Lucky always prefers a high-low mix over a head-to-toe designer outfit, so too do we endorse combining tomboyish pieces with ladylike ones for a beautiful balance. And though contradictory by nature, it’s actually pretty simple to perfect the art of masculine-feminine dressing. Think about it: style-wise, few women fall 100 percent into the tomboy or ladylike camps. Most prefer to mix and match the two looks, combining mannish pieces with ones that’d fit right in on the set of Mad Men.
Looking to get in on the tomboy-meets-girl trend for yourself? You’re in luck—summertime’s the absolute easiest time to test-drive this mode of dressing, when extra layers aren’t necessary and you can focus on the building blocks of both styles. So grab your pretty midi skirts and structured satchels, and click through for six outfits that’ll show you how to master masculine-feminine style this season!
