'Tomboy Style' book celebrates boyish beauty
One of my favorite new fashion books out now is "Tomboy Style" (Rizzoli) by Lizzie Garrett Mettler (left). It's a visual history of boyish beauty, with photographs of stylish women such as Alexa Chung and Marlene Dietrich.
"A tomboy is a girl," Mettler explains. "Tomboy style is about a woman who channels her tomboy childhood, and mixes masculine and feminine elements in her wardrobe. It's not just wearing men's clothes."
I talked to the L.A.-based author and blogger about her personal style, the idea behind the book and some of the great "Tomboy Style" icons past and present. Check out my story in Sunday's Image section.
Mettler also shared her must-have clothing and accessories for spring, mixing trends of the season such as colorful jeans, with classic tomboy staples such as a striped tee.
