Park Avenue preppy can be a bit too prim and proper for a girl with a playful sense of style. Keep your look from growing stuffy and stale with a few choice details - like a pair of skull patterned ballerina flats. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a prim and proper base: a knee-length pleated skirt with a collared blouse. These are no ordinary pieces though - we love the contrast collar on the blouse, and the rich green on the pleated skirt is anything but traditional.
2. Toss on a cropped jacket to keep your arms warm. Don’t you love the ribbon tie closure on the jacket?
3. Finish off the look with purposefully playful accessories - retro inspired cat eye sunglasses, a cuff clutch (so you’ll never misplace your handbag), and a pair of ballet flats adorned with a tiny skull motif.
