Mmhmm, not so much the pants + blazer + oxfords + hat anymore… we’ve gone girl! (Although masculine touches are still - and probably always will be - sort of a classic style. I hope… for me it will be!)
Floaty frocks, ruffled tops, voluminous skirts and bright colours were abundant on the runways; in the streets, vintage lace dresses (worn with a belted cardi or loose blazer) are all the rage.
If you want to only be semi-girly, just add something… un-feminine. Example: wearing a floral dress, but adding a tough jacket (leather usually works) and fierce heels.

I love this - it combines femininity (the skirt) with a sort of Chinese-ish (the silk does that) military jacket. I just find it so interesting to look at.
