      I love Lizzie Garrett Mettler and LOVE her Tomboy Style blog. I wanted to love the book just as much, but was a little underwhelmed after "reading" it. I was hoping for something a bit more in-depth, perhaps a small history on women's fashion and a placement of tomboys within that history. Instead, I found written snippets of inspiration and many (beautiful) images that I'd already seen on the blog. I noticed that a few readers had this book listed as a "coffee table" read. I wouldn't call it th [...]

      This books is full of pictures of the tomboy-yet-feminine style from various parts of the 20th (and some 21st too) century. Some pictures are more examples of the tomboy spirit than the clothes - I mean, you won't see many women wearing matador clothes in daily life, or even momentarily - but there's always some that you could apply to your own life. You're still left wanting more pictures, more examples, and it's perhaps one of the flaws this book can have. More of a coffee-table book with occa [...]

      Photo packed with an adequate amount of accompanying text "Tomboy Style: Beyond the Boundaries of Fashion" by Lizzie Garrett Mettler inspired me so much, and gave me so many clothing ideas, I'll be mining its pages for years. Now every time I wear a pantsuit with a t-shirt and sneakers I'll be following in the footsteps of Marlene Dietrich, Katharine Hepburn and the other boyish icons featured in this book.In 2016, the masculine-feminine trend and menswear style for women has had another resurge [...]

      Very fun! I especially enjoyed the inclusion of "ordinary" young women (and at my alma mater, which delighted me personally) among the photographs of tomboy style icons. Descriptions were a little silly/could have had greater depth considering the argument that such style was revolutionary throughout multiple eras. Could also have easily included more examples from a wider span of class and race. It would have improved this, I think. Very much focused on wealthy tomboy style. Still-- a very fun [...]

      I'm a big fan of Lizzie Garrett's blog, so I bought the book as soon as it was published. It is a very well-edited book, the photos are very inspiring. There are no outfit ideas or fashion advice though, and I was a bit disappointed because I already saw the majority of the photos on the blog. Still it is a very nice book to flip through. Go tomboys!

      Fab-o coffee table book based on the blog, tomboystyle. Chic, sporty, supercute, outdoorsy girls who pull it off in style. Got this as a b-day gift and have to say, it makes a good one.

      Got it for my fashion design daughter. but found it interesting, since it spans both of our lives: 1940's (and some before) through to the 90's.

      Could have been greatbut just a poorly representative series of photos with brief teenagerly descriptions of 'types'. Y.A.W.N.
