I’m wildly fascinated by the French fashion in The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, the [book] I’m reading this month. But who doesn’t the French amaze? The style in Hugo is elegant, sharp, and very parisian.
Though the train passengers’ style is most captivating, I can’t help but admire Hugo’s smart clothes. While many shop owners and the occasional librarian describe him as dirty or filthy, he always tries to look very put together.
I feminized Hugo’s outfits and added a few accessories and a notebook that reminded me of the one he carries with him everywhere.
Not many girls realize how easy it is to work the menswear look while still looking feminine. Add alot of jewelry, curl your hair, and wear a little lip gloss and you’re cute as a button. It’s also the time to work oversized handbags or patent leather kitten heels with thigh high socks.
But my favorite accessory is definitely the hat—a cloche, fedora, beret—you name it, I’ll wear it.
Happy Friday! Look out for an outfit post on Monday.
