Good morning, my sweet readers! This is the last post (for now) before we put our Spring Trends guide on hiatus, and you know why… Fashion week is just two days away and our coverage is ready to start! In the meantime, I have a trend that’s cute as a button and dressy as dressy can get. As I kid, I had two favorite cartoons: Babar and Madeline. Little did I know that I would grow up to be the ultimate francophile. When I individuated the Good Girl trend from the Spring 2013 runways, I new I had to go with a grown-up Madeline illustration. I would kill for Madeline’s cape/coat, I might make myself one!
Back to what concerns us today, the good girl trend is very different from the ladylike style. Is has the same vibe, but it’s younger, it’s more playful and of course, flirtier. Flared garments, pussybows, ruffles and golden buttons are all part of the good girl’s closet and even if you have dubbed yourself a tough chick, you can still dress up like a good gal.
WHO DID IT:
- Marc Jacobs / Victoria Beckham / Carven
- Sass & Bide / Burberry Prorsum / Giles
MUST-HAVE PIECES: A skater dress or a ruffled hem one. A flared and flirty skirt in a bold color. Polka dot trousers or pants with a soft print. A structured jacket with golden buttons. A pussybow blouse.
