Jill Stuart: the rock-chic Sloane Ranger

Think rock-chic and the image usually involves plenty of kohl eyeliner and black leather. But the term can encompass another type of rockstar icon. It’s the insouciant cool that inherently mixes spring florals with bed hair and boots; it’s twiggy legs peeping out from tailored shorts and a blazer; it’s Lou Doillon when she’s not trying, or Kate Moss when she’s attending some wedding or another in an outfit that’s splashed with non-traditional, retro-inspired sophistication.

Jill Stuart’s resort / pre-spring 2013 collection has that kind of cool-factor. It steers distinctly clear of being too girly in spite of the ruffles, frills and florals that comprise, but not define, it. Somehow, Stuart takes elements that could be Princess Dianna-era Sloane Ranger – and pares them back for the now.
