Fashion Book: Little Women–Jo Edition
Time for the second installment of the Fashion Books Classics–this time, we’re taking a look at Jo, probably the most memorable and iconic of the March sisters. (Click here for the first installment).
Jo is the quintessential tomboy. In fact, I think she invented the term. She’s independent, smart, and witty. When I began putting together a modernized look for her, I styled something along the lines of the menswear-inspired looks around the runways now–slouchy trousers, a flowing button-down, a vest, a floppy hat. But then it occurred to me that Jo isn’t a tomboy because it’s trendy–she’s a tomboy because it’s what’s comfortable for her. It’s effortless, not stylized.
I decided on Levi’s and oxfords and a tote–a look that could easily be called “trendy” but one which could easily also be timeless tomboy chic. It’s frustrating that I couldn’t find a pair of worn looking Levi’s on Polyvore that didn’t cost over $200, but know that Jo wouldn’t have bought them for that price. In my mind, Jo shops at the Goodwill–when she’s not out doing something else awesome.
