THE TOMBOY STYLE - FROM EARLY 900's UNTILL NOW

The gender-bending was broken almost a century ago, thanks to young and strong women like Coco Chanel and Marlene Dietrich. Since then many women start to wear men's clothes and we remember many past icons to date whose style is characterized by wearing men's clothes. From Jean Seaberg, Diane Keaton, Lauren Hutton to the recent looks of Cara Delavigne and Kristen Stewart. The idea that there are girl activities and clothing, and that there are boy activities and clothing, is often reinforced by the tomboy concept. Tomboyism can be seen as both refusing gender roles and traditional gender conventions, but also conforming to gender stereotypes. As for fashion, tomboy style never goes out of style, but there will always be a tomboy style that characterizes an era.
