Fashion Book: Little Women
Little Women is a perennial classic, beloved by readers the world over. I read it many times growing up, and I think I cried every single time Beth died. Though the book takes place primarily during the Civil War, I think the reason it still resonates with young readers is because the characters are so vibrant and so real–who hasn’t met an Amy or a Jo?
For my regular Fashion Book features, I’ve been focusing on the books I’m currently reading. But because of your overwhelmingly positive and encouraging responses to my post this week about changing the blog, I’ve decided to do a few more Fashion Book posts, focusing on classics. Little Women just seemed like the logical starting point. What would these ladies wear were they not living in 19th century America?
I’d like to give each character her own spotlight. This week, I’ll start with Meg, the oldest of the ladies. Meg was the responsible one–down to earth, caring, and, let’s face it, a little bland. In my re-imagining, Meg would have a conservative and classic style, but she wouldn’t be afraid of prints or pops of color either.
