Dockers recently released their first Women of Style video, featuring none other than Lizzie Garrett Mettler, an authority of all things tomboy style.
We are huge fans of Lizzie’s Tomboy Style blog in which she celebrates the tomboy spirit, menswear borrowing and gender rebellion like no other. Thanks to her, the word “tomboy” is no longer a dirty word. Her book Tomboy Style: Beyond the Boundaries of Fashion is a visual history that chronicles the past eighty years of women who blur the line between masculinity and femininity while exploring the evolution of the style and its icons.
“I define tomboy style as equal parts style and spirit. Although the tomboy may be initially identified by men’s clothing, what makes her wholly so is an inherent sense of confidence, rebelliousness and adventure.” – Lizzie Garrett Mettler.
Tomboy style is now no longer just a word hijacked by the LGBT crowd but meant to mean all girls and women who have a masculine attitude towards life, a love for the great outdoors or who grew up with the boys and eventually reflected that in their fashion style, lifestyles and tastes.
