Schoolgirl chic, London style

If mention of schoolgirl chic once had you envisaging tartan skirts and knee high socks circa Clueless, you’re not alone. But perhaps the presence of schoolgirls gone bad – or at least gone vintage – at New York fashion week may have changed that. If not, here’s something else that might: the subtle presence of schoolgirl chic, London style. Buttoned up shirt and backpack have a schoolish sensibility all over, while skinny pants add an androgynous twist.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
