I don’t know if it’s about berets that I’m currently obsessing over or Birkin mini skirts, but I’m seriously not ready to let the French Schoolgirl look go away. It is pretty much the only aesthetically pleasing trend that takes into consideration girls with more feminine silhouettes. Personally I love the tomboy look, with my favourite style icons being Patti Smith, Francoise Hardy and Nico, but I have been blessed with big boobs and a narrow waist, so it’s either this or pin-up! Since I’m also naturally lazy and pin-up seems to consume much more time, effort and ink, I’m relying on schoolgirls!
Thankfully designers are still hooked on the subject and gave the schoolgirls a naughtier side. As knitwear still plays an important role, ribbons were replaced by (hopefully fake) leather jackets and trashy trenches. Way to go schoolgirls!
