Tomboy Fresh

Posted by Alyssa Franco-Lozada on

 "Yes, fellow tomboys — this feature is for you. From tried-and-true tropes, like Annie Hall, to a few more modern and unexpected dude inspirations, here are a few versions of tomboy style out there — and the perfect outfits to get you the look"



Military Spiffy — The army jacket may be a tomboy's most beloved piece of outerwear, so really go for it with a few other sharp, tailored pieces. The key is to make sure the fit is still slim, lest you want to end up looking like a newly enlisted Charlie Chaplin.

Tinseltown Tomboy — Annie Hall, this one's for you! We can't do a tomboy story without referencing one of our favorite icons. Do it up modern style with patterned oxfords, thick-rimmed sunglasses, and a slim-fit vest.

Bowery Punk — Leopard, leather, and studs = perennial punk staples. Creepers also can help give you a little height (since heels will probably never fit into your arsenal).

Off-Hours Mogul — Part Pharrell, part Angel Haze, this look screams Boss Lady without getting all stuffy.

Grown-Up Schoolboy — While you might not have thought florals were your thing, they very well could be on a spiffy varsity jacket like this one. Cropped pants, slick loafers, and a backpack keep that Billy Elliot-vibe alive.

Trad Dandy — Take your suits out of the office by finding one in a cropped, shrunken fit. A little silk bandanna looks cheeky tied as an ascot under a button-up (and take this as an opportunity to grow your loafer collection — we give you permission!).

  • Regarding Erasing in The Gimp: The last time I tried this, the interface was not done very well. It was sagtirht up unstable and just didn’t look nice. That was awhile back and it may have been fixed since then, and I don’t have my tablet to look at right here right now.I believe what you need to do is in the File menu, go to Preferences, and then it’s going to be under Input Devices somewhere. Actually, that part already looks better to me.There’s a dialog around there somewhere that lets you set whether you want to use Tablet input or Mouse input, and if tablet input, set whether it’s relative to the Screen or the Window (you probably want Screen, although someone with an attached Wacom tablet would probably want Window).I didn’t even know that my tablet (Toshiba Portege m200) supported pressure sensitivity until I did this and started drawing around. I think you can also set whether you want pressure to affect your line color, thickness, or maybe both. If yours also supports tilt, I may need your help on Virtual Paper
