THE GRID | Tomboy Style Essentials


For the past four days, the fabulous Meghan Doherty and I have been putting together a master list of Tomboy Style essentials. We nearly exhausted ourselves creating this, but it is by no means exhaustive. Much of it is shop-able (with links below), but we really just hope you have as much fun looking at it as we did making it!

The Essentials Grid is composed of 92 items (what you see above is just a taste) that we feel won't let you down in style, comfort, or purpose. They're categorized four ways: The Standard, The Edge, The American, and The Import. Meghan favors the Edge/American columns whereas I skew more Edge/Import. What about you?

TAKE ME TO THE GRID!

Love nearly everything in the American column (but would steal the OBCD from the edge column).

Bass weejuns + Fat Tire? Hell yes.

Joy said...

This is all kinds of awesome. Epic really.

Hannah said...

Felicity said...

Awesome! I love so much of it! Epic really is the right word (and I rarely say that).

Fleurette said...

Love this! I waver between the edge and the import.

Why does this remind me of True Prep?

Happenstance said...

This is brilliant. I tended toward the American/Import but quite honestly I think I cover this whole entire grid. So good Lizzie!
