First on our Tomboy Style Spring 2016 trends list: The boudoir was a recurring theme on the Spring/Summer 16 runways, with many top designers featuring lingerie and sleepwear-inspired pieces in their ready-to-wear collections. Girls with boyish sensibilities can rock the innerwear-as-outerwear trend too. Take your look from the bedroom to the boardroom by tucking in that silky camisole into a pair of sharply tailored pants and throwing on a blazer for added structure. Or grunge it up by pairing a lacy slip dress with a beat-up motorcycle jacket, scuffed combat boots and your best scowl.

It’s nice to know that the pyjama shirt trend is alive and well because pyjamas transition beautifully from sleepwear to streetwear just by swapping the bottoms for regular work trousers or your favourite jeans. Or forgo pants altogether by going with the billowy full-length nightshirt and slip your feet into canvas sneakers in a light neutral for that breezy, casual vibe. Add a stylishly protective barrier between you and the world with a pair of dark sunglasses, because it’s way too early in the day for any of this.

Denim lovers may rejoice as denim is bang on trend this spring. And we tomboys love our denim so much that we practically live in them.  This season saw heavy use of this hardy fabric, notably in medium to dark washes. The spotlight is on full body denim-on-denim looks comprised of a single uniform wash, rather than a mixture of light and dark separates to create maximum visual impact.

The fact that streetwear continues to dominate the runways is proof-positive of designers’ sustained efforts to appeal to a growingly affluent younger demographic, and we’re not mad because urban and athletic-inspired looks allow us to navigate concrete jungles and city streets with greater ease (and style).

SS16’s outerwear offerings are a nod to vintage menswear, with one of the standout pieces being the iconic bomber jacket. We love that this ‘50s classic imparts an instant tomboyish flair to any outfit with its mannishly utilitarian design, and double dog dare you to try it over a flowy dress. Another piece of American heritage is the varsity jacket, embellished with embroidery instead of letters. These come in a whole spectrum of colours ranging from neutrals to neons, and are a worthwhile addition to your wardrobe because not to brag, but we wear it better than any dumb high school jocks.

Romance is in the air this spring with designs inspired by Victoriana, as well as Elizabethan and Edwardian fashions, much to the delight of us modern fops and dandies. Not a fan of ruffles, you say? A card-carrying member of the “No Frills” Society? Here’s how you can make this frou-frou trend not suck: wear a ruffly top with bottoms which are wider in the leg like cargo pants to create a straight, boyish silhouette. Blousy linens can be cinched in with a waistcoat or vest for a more dapper style. Pair soft, gauzy fabrics with stiffer, modern fabrics that hold their shape well for stylistic balance.

In a much less bloody version of the Anglo-Spanish war, an armada of Spain’s iconic fashions like matador jackets and flamenco dresses sailed its way down the SS16 runways, igniting a fiery passion in our hearts with exquisitely beautiful detailing and rich crimson hues.

Buck the trend of botanicals and brights for spring with the austerity of a monochromatic palette. Better yet, eschew colour, embrace black-and-white thinking, and let textures and shapes do the talking instead.
