Welcome to the very first Fashion Friday! I’ve decided to add a few new weekly posts and this is the first of them! I find so many cute things in my travels on the Internet and I wanted to share them with you all!
The finn & roo look can be described as sweet geek chic and I want to starting showing off real world examples. However, if I had to describe it in words, you can break it down into:
SWEET – Both in color and motif. This includes pastel tones, cute animals, floral prints and soft fabrics.
GEEK – Both in the traditional sense (enjoying scifi, anime and comics) and in a stylistic sense (adding in geek chic items like horn rimmed glasses or cardigan sweaters)
CHIC – Trying to mix styles that aren’t usually brought together can get messy, so always making sure it comes together well and looks stylish!
I feel like this outfit, put together by Angelic Pretty USA and posted on their Facebook page, is a perfect representation of a sweet lolita SGC look. The colors are light and there’s lots of lace. The cardigan ties it together, adding more cuteness and a wink of nerd.
I think that it may be lacking a bit in the chic department, but that’s easily fixed by taking the skirt/cutsew combo and swapping it for this jumper and blouse look from the same Royal Chocolate line. Another option would be adding a less busy cardigan and trading the headband for a beret. This look was intentionally made to be casual but it’s very easy to take the same pieces and dress them up as you can see in a look like this, which adds one of their coats to the mix!
For another couple of looks from their Facebook page that I think fit the style, check out these out:
- Retro Modern Jumper Skirt look: Though this is in black, it could easily be recreated in another color with a different but similarly shaped JSK.
- Misty Sky Skirt and Heart Cookie Wappen Parka: Another casual look and the busyness of it takes it away from chic again but it’s another look to take inspiration from.
- Back to School Style: This is a very traditional sweet lolita look that’s a great jumping off point.
Let me know what you think of the new Friday posts! Also, if you have an idea for a great post, send that along too! I’d love to feature stuff on the blog!
