tomboy style

The word Tomboy is first recorded 1590: “wild, romping girl, girl who acts like a spirited boy”.In fashion, Tomboy style came in time of the Roaring Twenties. According to “Tomboys: a literary and cultural history” by Ann Abate”while flappers were infamous for their possession of their hyper-feminine qualities like wearing short dresses and being flirtatious, they were simultaneously known for being boyish, and, frankly, even tomboyish.”
