Military look

Military items are one of the best options for the boyish look. 

Camouflage patterns can give strong impressions. Simplest way for the boyish look is to use camouflage patterned items. However, too-much styling will make it as a military uniform so it is better to use it as a point item.

Tailored jacket with baggy pants represent the mannish look.  

To go for the mannish look, it is important to choose a jacket with boxy silhouette rather than slim jackets. Also matching with baggy pants is a good idea. It will add classical mood. For the pattern, checks and glen checks are the recommendation.
