TREND: Pipi Longstockings

Sometimes a girl just wants to have fun, and what better way to have fun with your outfit than to throw on a pair of bright stockings?

Pippi Longstocking was one of my favourite cartoons growing up, so seeing styles that remind me of the iconic redhead will always me take a second look. Nowadays, fewer Fashionista's are inspired by the independent Swede and have mostly fallen more into the Lolita style.

This Fashionista caught my eye at a meeting last week with her gorgeous Lolita inspired outfit and even though, I don't have much experience with the Lolita style, I couldn't help but bedrawn in by her amazing heels, studded black skirt and star-quality haircut.

To get this Fashionista's toned down style, start with the basics. Pick a pair of stockings or high socks that you love and build from there. A bell or tulip skirt is the next step, and a frilly blouse will polish off the look. Add your best pair of Mary Janes and you'll be ready to go.

 The Lolita look is very popular in Japan, but it isn't quite mainstream in the US yet. Be a trendsetter and don those Mary Janes in the name of fashion!

Hint: Any outfit, no matter the style can be greatly enhanced by the right haircut. Depending on the sahpe of your face, different cuts or lengths may be best for you. THe most important thing to know is that not every style is for you. Just because Rihanna can get away with dying her hair bright red, doesn't mean you can too.
