With fall in full swing, I’m finding that most of my outfits these days are dominated by prep school elements like sweaters over crisp collars and a healthy dose of knee socks. It’s no surprise, then, that I’ve found myself drawn to Carey Mulligan’s costumes as Jenny Mellor in An Education. It’s been a while since I’ve seen it, but her outfits–both pre-and post-education–have stuck with me all this time. Though there’s a distinct difference between her school-days outfits and her mid-century glamour girl ensembles, they’re both well-structured, simply elegant, and undeniably chic. Oh, and lest I forget, let’s take a moment to admire her fabulous ’60s hair, all right?
Which is your favorite look? I’d love to know!
