The new Woman-Hood Summer 2013 collection from Dimepiece rejects the traditional notion of women's fashion as soft and feminine, choosing instead to embrace urban streetwise fashion targeted at the bold, modern woman.
Woman-Hood features everything from grungy band tees to crop tops to tie-dyed ensembles. However, all of these different styles are held together as a collection by their departure from the traditional feminine styles of floral dresses and pastel-colored blouses.
The collection takes historically masculine fashion trends and twists them to make them both striking and flattering outfits for women. One such outfit takes a baseball cap, a crop top and a floor-length skirt, combines them and adds a men's plaid shirt tied around the waist. The result is a daring masculine ensemble that also exudes femininity.
With streetwise fashion like that of the 'Woman-Hood' collection modern women can choose to abandon traditional feminine fashion while still looking chic and fashionable.
