FFAF Goes Tomboy Femme with Topman's Floral Bomber Jacket

FFAF Goes Tomboy Femme with Topman's Floral Bomber Jacket

For the most part when I borrow from the (tom)boys, it's more practical than subversive  fishing one of her rumpled dress shirts from the floor in the morning to make coffee or brush my teeth, stealing a pair of socks if I've run out, that sort of thing.

Once in a while something clever will catch my eye in menswear, and I like the challenge of mixing in something new and out of the ordinary with my typically femme wardrobe.

Fit For a Femme and Topman

Meet one of spring's trendiest lightweight jackets the floral bomber. Breezy bomber jackets cropped up last S/S and are here to stay for a bit; they're kind of the new unisex casual blazer. The bomber isn't normally a piece I'd gravitate toward, but now that it's in my closet I reach for it a lot  it's especially handy going to and from barre class and over my usual crop of Everlane basics.  

Fit For a Femme and Topman

This one is from Topman, and I like how it manages to mix bright foliage with mesh and jersey and still look cool. I love florals in menswear, especially wee Liberty prints and big, lush tropicals (even the banana leaf we've all seen overmuch). Paired with plain black trousers, a black bodysuit and a pair of killer mesh sandals, this outfit felt fresh and tomboy femme  but still "me," which is so important! As weather warms up, swapping the trousers for tailored black shorts and pleated minis would work the same way.

It's got kind of a beachy, rashguard-esque quality, doesn't it? I can see it making an awesome cover-up over sporty swimsuits for summer beaching. 

Fit For a Femme and Topman

For a twist on a classic femme look, I traded the trousers in for a floral brocade pencil skirt and bright heels. Hooray, pattern mixing! A half-tucked tank in a nice, bright silk or rayon would look awesome and really lend itself to the "jacket thrown over my shoulders" vibe, or for the very bold and casual, with the bomber tied around the waist. Awesome outfit ideas for Sunday brunchin' and carousin' with pals in the city.
