The Look: Inspired, in part, by classic American style as seen through the grandiose eyes of an
overachiever. Daintily Dramatic, Clean-Cut and Powerful, “Haute for Teacher” is a seemingly
effortless and playful compromise between many of the dichotomies vying for attention and
validation in the minds of modern youthful women. When thde cutting edge of Couture serves us
a fresh slice of the Preppy life. Texture is conveyed through contrasting the hard predictable lines
of various plaids against a softer chiffon blouse with a playful exaggerated ruffle. Or, perhaps, a
well tailored, even masculine, blazer over a proper “bow” blouse of chiffon suggests
structure and validity, reigning in the youthful free-flow of a full-length, silky maxi skirt. It's an
easy look that can just as easily be worn during an afternoon in the park studying Whitman., as it
can be while standing and presenting your case to rest of the class. Occasionally, radiant metallic
hues, anchor this look in the Now. It's flirty but never inappropriate; comfortable but never casual.
Its undeniable vintage flare romanticizes the the gentrified manner of a '70's Ivy League grad
student beginning to flirt with the fine line between her own dreamy ideals and society’s
expectations of how a young lady of her stature should think and be.
The Girl: She's that girl that makes everyone realize just how much they want to be just like her.
She has a polished, simple style embellished by the ideals of a high societal opulence. She radiates
accessibility fed by a love of poetry, photography, high fashion and The Arts. Simultaniously, she
possesses an unmistakable class that propels her into “It Girl” status at her school. She's the editor
of the yearbook, student body President, and chairman of her school's book club. She comes from
wealth, but doesn't seem to show it. Having been born in Boston, MA to a very affluent and
established family she has a natural and free spirit with a peaked interest in the Fashions of
Yesteryear. People seem to gravitate toward her sweet and modest manner. Her natural
confidence lights up any room she enters, instantly attracting all eyes to her. She's truly a girly girl
at heart. This is obvious by feminine touches, such as lace, bows, and ruffles paired with knee
length pencil skirt and airy blouse. Her style causes the curious eye to wonder how one could
possibly make a style seem so laid back and effortless.
