Let's Hear It For The (Tom)boys! 3 Hot Outfits Inspired By L.A. Dudes

This might be hard to believe, but the last time we wielded our plastic with reckless abandon, it wasn't for a frilly dress, flirty accessory, or sexy stilettos — there was nary a ladylike item in sight! We actually raided the men's section at J.Crew like it was going out of style, which of course, it totally isn't! But, unlike the aforementioned gal garb, all of this new masculine loot was no cakewalk, when it came to assembling outfits.
So, we looked no further than the Southland streets to aid in the styling of our swing-both-way sundries. Yep, we nabbed three fine L.A. fellows to give us a lesson in tomboy dressing, and are sharing our accompanying girl-friendly looks, right here. What are you waiting for? Let's hear it for the boys!

We'll apologize in advance for not getting Isac Sindell's contact info, but at least we've got a sartorial tutorial from the Cooper Building cutie! The mustard-meets-patriotic color combo is completely unexpected, which is always refreshing — no matter what chromosomes you hold! Plus, how dope will these Nike high-tops be with the L.L.Bean button-down tied-up, then paired with torn-to-shreds hot pants come warmer temps?

Spotted outside of Opening Ceremony, Adrian Gilliland's metallic kicks had us at hello. And, while nothing screams cool kid like an expertly man-scaped 'stache, you can still snag his hip factor sans facial hair with beetle-hued Jil Sander brogues and an own-it-forever Acne blazer.

Once holding the title of one of our Most Eligible Bachelors in L.A., PR guru Tiyson Reynolds proves that easy layers can be simultaneously suave, preppy, and multi-functional. Say the WeHo dweller left the house at eight in the morn — he'd be appropriately ready to roll for a Fig & Olive brunch, followed by a Melrose Place shopping spree (Paul Smith anyone?), then off to swill vodka sodas into the wee hours at the Chateau. When you turn the tables for our androgynous experiment, we highly suggest you apply a poppy-red pout and give your hair a sexy tousled wave.
