This season’s trends aren’t just about clothes - it’s a whole state of mind. Whether it’s the new Pretty Girls, Bad Girlfriends or
the Clean Living lot, it’s time to pick your tribe. Or why not be all three? It really depends on your mood that day.
These are the girls leaning into a zen way of life. Probably barefoot in a light-flooded studio, or holding a yoga pose on a remote beach, they’re keeping things pared-back with clean silhouettes and fuss-free tailoring.
“This girl places as much emphasis on her inner wellbeing as her outer appearance” - Phoebe Lovatt, LA-based journalist
Who said smart can’t be girly? Tavi and Emma Watson are the super-smart poster girls for a trend full of ruffles and pink. So reinstate what it means to be a pretty girl – this trend is about owning your femininity.
“It’s the 21st-century license to indulge in all things girly without conforming to notions of simpering femininity”
- Susie Lau, blogger at Style Bubble
Part of the rebel crowd? Sign your allegiance to Bad Girlfriend, a trend for misbehaving. Forget 'with the band', you're in the band – so make like your favourite front women in folk prints and rock girl leathers.
“To be rebellious in fashion today is simply to stick up for yourself ”
- Leandra Medine, blogger at Man Repeller
