Cara Delevingne (pictured here with her predecessor Kate Moss) is a dab hand at pairing suits and sneakers with luxe, feminine elements. The contrast is key.

 

2. Fearne Cotton

Fearne-Cotton_glamour_19jun14_rex_b_592x888Fearne Cotton isn’t a woman who shies away from switching up her style. One day it’s pretty sun dresses, the next it’s dark and edgy separates. Her latest home-to-work style is definitely more in the vein of the tomboy; long-length black blazer, buttoned-to-the-neck shirt, skinny jeans and tough-talking boots. It works perfectly.

 

3. Rita Ora

Rita Ora can often be found wearing flirty, feminine combinations or sports luxe separates, so it came as a little bit of a surprise to see her kitted out in this boyish yet impeccably tailored trouser suit in April. Teaming the all-white look with a fitted blouse, a clutch of gold rings, a red lip and a slicked back ‘do, Rita nails the sexy androgynous look with ease.

5. Anne Hathaway

For a charity event in LA, the 31-year-old teamed moody separates with an embellished slim-fit blazer, which worked in perfect harmony with her choppy cropped hair. Is this the start of a new style chapter for Anne now that she and her stylist of ten years Rachel Zoe have reportedly parted ways? Either way, it’s working.

 

6. Janelle Monae

Monochrome and tuxedo suits sum up singer Janelle Monae’s unique style – it’s a polished take on tomboy that’s refreshing on the red carpet.

 

7. Miley Cyrus

A fan of jumpsuits, oversized denim jackets and streetwear – when she’s not twerking in latex pants, Miley’s wardrobe follows a tomboy aesthetic.

 

8. Jenna Lyons

The woman behind J Crew has made us want to wear men’s striped shirts, boldly coloured trousers and knits, and suits all the time.
