Fashion Math: Tomboy Edition

It’s not like you don’t own pink or you’re allergic to ruffles — in fact, you own plenty of pieces that would definitely be considered girly if anyone but you wore it. It’s just that you know the tomboy spirit is way more about how you put things together than what you’re wearing in the first place. Floral shorts? You’d much rather wear ’em with creepers than heels. Pink lace-ups? Bring on the linen short suit — you’re here to give Don Johnson a run for his money. 

For the modern-day tomboys who know that shopping and spectator sports aren’t mutually exclusive interests, we’ve come up with three different versions for three different outfit combinations — that’s nine in total! — for the anti-frill lady to commit to memory.
