Try out menswear inspired wardrobe staples, like unconventional jackets and high waisted pants. With a casual tee and oxfords or tennis shoes, you have the perfect tomboy style! These patterns are from the March 2011 issue of Burda Style magazine.

This roomy Blouson Jacket is a simplified version of the bomber shape. The relaxed fit has a round neck with no collar and deep pockets. It’s a great piece to wear with jeans on the weekend.

This lightweight Long Spring Coat is less structured than a trenchcoat, so it goes with everything. Deep pockets hold everything you need.

Sweatshirt fabric makes this jacket sporty instead of stuffy. The cropped fit looks good with high waisted bottoms.

The High Waisted Trousers your figure a long, lean, slimming line. Whatever you pair with these pants, you’ll have a stylish outfit that looks put together even with sneakers.

Menswear style gets a feminine upgrade with a curvy boot cut and extra wide cuffs. Dress the Wide Leg Trousers up with a button down or for a night out with a V neck tee and shrunken vest.

This Spring Blazer has all the details you could want, like a fitted waist, breast pocket, buttoned sleeves, and hip pockets. It’s a chic topper for any tailored outfit.

Everyone needs a few basic layering tanks in their closet. This Long Racer Back Top can go under anything, from tough jackets to cardigans.

Stand out from the crowd in these cool Utility Pants with elastic cuffs, buttoned pockets, and utility details. They’re the perfect pant for a day at the park or a cool concert.

Make the most of a slouchy day with this simple Oversize Tank. It’s so versatile, you can layer it under or over almost anything.

Bermuda Shorts have an Annie Hall vibe just right for jackets and oxfords. Make them in a crisp trouser fabric for that menswear touch.

For when you can’t decide between sporty and feminine. This Jersey Dress is so comfortable and casual, but still has a girlie touch with the mini length.

    Wow, I like everything in this collection. I just wish the items were available in larger sizes. Oh well, they’re pretty to look at.
