Pretty in Pink



                             Skirt: Charity Shop. T-Shirt: Urban Outfitters. Wedges: Vintage


This outfit is another which was inspired from a film, this time a classic 80s American teen drama; Pretty in Pink, it is also relevant as it showcases S/S pastels, WINNER.  Floral midi skirts are a favourite of mine and I am certain they will be a common feature over summer, however, I still need to retain a sense of boyishness so I have teamed it with a cropped black graphic top and my faithful bowler hat. I kept the cold out with my grey tweet-esque blazor but I think I might also try out this look with my trench coat or parka to keep it nice and casual.






Here she goes, the protagonist Andie Walsh in the 80s high school teen classic Pretty in Pink, she is the ultimate thrifter and has a bold quirky combination of granny chic which is largely built from self-fashioned peices. Genius.  

Check the film out, it is good for quirky style inspiration and has a bop-worthy 80s soundtrack.

  11. That skirt on its own looks so girly but the way you styled it is so good because looks more grunge, like pretty girl meets grunge guy and they get married look :)
