Also, all the clothes you will need for a tomboy chic outfit have a lot of overlap with someother indie aesthetics - baggy chic, academia, grandpa or grandmacore - it’s all a matter of styling and accessories.

The key garments for tomboy chic aesthetic are boyish clothes of whatever flavor.

If you’ve ever heard of the Kibe fashion types (I’m not), tomboy chic can be what comes up as the ideal style for the gamine type. Except, you know, this is indie fashion, we don’t do body types. You just do whatever you want.

Small, sharp geometric patterns are essential to the tomboy aesthetic. Precision fitted and crisply tailored clothing with straight hemlines can go well with the vibe…But feel free to make it grungier if that’s your style.

If grungier is not for you, then here’s another fresh take: Short bermuda trousers with a crisp shirt can be a fresh take on the tomboy aesthetic - it’s something a schoolboy would wear but women often don’t dare to, even if they love the tomboy aesthetic.

Well, that makes it even better for those who do dare to because the style will look new.

It is quite minimalist, though

Most importantly though? Keep it simple.

Forgetting any frills and bows in your outfit is the best way to approach it. Do add boyish detail like small v’s on necklines (for example), piping around sleeves etc., all of which give depth to your outfit.

People love the tomboy chic style because it is a departure from the traditional feminine style in a way that is still cute and in a way soft, unlike grungy or dark aesthetics. Tomboy chic is comfortable and wearable, and it allows women to express their personalities in a unique way. The indie elements add a touch of individuality that makes this style stand out from the crowd.
