Famous Five inspired outfit: George, all grown up!
As you'll no doubt have gathered from my Enid Blyton-inspired outfit a few weeks ago, I am a huge fan of her work; and The Famous Five series will always hold a special place in my heart. While my Blyton-inspired outfit was probably more something that young Anne would wear (and I'll admit, I always fancied I was a cross between Anne and Julian!) - I thought it might be fun to put together something for George!
One of the biggest catwalk trends for this season is the 'masculine' look, although it's not something that I've seen much of on the streets. Still, it can be an incredibly chic look, especially when put together with a touch of feminine. Given her tomboy ways, I have no doubt that an adult George Kirrin is the perfect point of inspiration for this outfit! To get the look, keep reading after the cut...
Set the tone with these wide-leg pinstripe trousers, £40 from Debenhams; and pair with the scoop-necked, pin-tuck detailed blouse, £30 from Monsoon. Give it a masculine kick with this halterneck checked waistcoat, £35 from Topshop; and chunky chain and leather bracelet by CC Skye, £100 at ASOS. Add some sensible flats (seriously, George in heels? Never!), £35 from Accessorize; and round it off with this work-ready, slouchy masculine tote, £49 from Jane Shilton. For a finishing touch, add this pretty locket from Nostalgic Memories for £20.02 - with just enough room for a photo of The Five in their hey-day, with Timmy in the forefront, of course!
