Trend Alert: "Tomboy Chic: Sweats and Heels"

Outfit Details: "Leather" Jacket- H&M, Sweatpants- Zaras,
White V Neck Tee, Studded Pumps, and Jewelry- -Forever 21. 

When I usually "dress up," I am restricted to fitted clothing, skirts, dresses, skinny jeans, or similar styles of clothing. When I traveled to Toronto last month, I experimented with a trend that has been popping all over the bloggersphere: "Tomboy Chic: Sweats and Heels."

This trend combines the functionality and comfort usually found in men's clothing with simple feminine pieces creating an amazing, comfy, yet trendy look.

If you want to experiment with the "Tomboy Chic" read on for additional fashion tips.

1) Purchased a pair of relaxed grey sweatpants. If the sweatpants have a little of texture it makes it easier to dress it up and add items already in your closet. Although the pants should fit you a loosely, make sure they still accentuate your wait and behind... Use that drawstring ladies. :)

2) Pair your sweatpants with the perfect top. Pairing your sweatpants with an amazing top can give you limitless options. Dress it up and add a really feminine touch by wearing a crop top. A fitted one will allow you to channel the late and great, Aaliyah by giving you a soft, feminine, and athletic appeal. A loose fitting crop top will allow you to show off your shoulder, wear some chunky jewelry and add some additional trendy pieces. Play around with patterns and textures by adding a graphic top with your fav celebrities' image, a picture of a trendy icon, or word art of your favorite saying. 

3) Decide on outwear. If you choose to wear a simple top, the addition of a leather jacket or crop jacket can add some umph and structure to this laid back look. The addition of outerwear can help you create an effortless silhouette by pulling in the boxed look of the loose fitting sweatpants.

4) Add some accessories! Nothing say femininity more than the addition of some trendy and eye catching accessories. Hats, handbags, and jewelry can easily add the Chic to the Tomboy. These inexpensive additions, allow any fashionista to play with color, texture, patterns, and styles by simply adding colorful necklaces, cross body purses, hoop earrings, bolo hats, men inspired watches, rings, and shades. Play around and create a different look by trying out different accessories the next time you wear you sweats and heels.

5) Don't forget the heels!! Although you don't have to wear heels, the addition of some sexy heels can take this look to another level. Strappy heels, pumps, and even booties add the perfect touch to this look.
