One of the most notable trends this season is school girl chic or what we can also refer to as the preppy look. There is the right kind of preppy, one that transcends the whole “Clueless” (remember that movie?) look: it is a good balance of different pieces which ultimately prevents you from looking too young and naive. Check out an all prepped out Daria Strokous in Milan.
Everything jives in this ensemble. The jacket really has that school girl silhouette and the pleated skirt works well with it but if it were longer it would really lessen the chic in this outfit. Adding some cool to the look are the bag (worn messenger style to give a more relaxed vibe), the sunglasses and the bracelet. Wearing tights instead of socks balanced out and added some spunk the whole preppy look. It also allowed her to show more leg without looking too rebellious. The semi-pointed black laced shoes may be simple but did not lack style. The ensemble is nicely topped off with a scarf which broke the monotony and seriousness of the look.
