Too eclectic to be ignored. Barely an adult and in her late teens, Julia Frake's keen eye for style and contributions to PAPER Magazine have earned her seats at shows such as Chanel, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton - and that's only counting this past Fall 2015. With her fragile appearance, whimsical style, and bag of choice usually a revamped classic Chanel flap, Frakes takes on the fashion world day by day. Updating her must-read blog, bunny BISOUS, whenever she has the chance from her busy schedule. Proving to the world that even girls her age have the ability to set trends, instead of follow them.
Along with a sea of originality, there are a few key items, which happen to be hot this Fall, that can lead you down a path fanciful glory. Did you ever think that you would be taking legitimate tips and style notes from someone probably a lot younger than you? Probably not. Though, when such bold statements are made, hard work shouldn't go unnoticed. Sticking true to her age, but adding a bit of maturity to her overall look, Julia often mixes very adult pieces with things that you would at first associate with an innocent and young child.
For example, layering cardigans over a more sophisticate and sometimes delicate dress or skirt, as shown above. Only later to top off the look with bows galore, from headband to high heels. Which can be replaced with a the surrealistic Dolce & Gabbana glove headbands. Seen all throughout the Dolce & Gabbana, still creating for a carefree mood yet adding more of a bit adult edge.
Often spotted making a mad and fashionable dash from show to show during fashion week, Frakes frequently completes her style puzzle with neon tights, luxurious scarves, and bold and drool worthy statement necklaces. Both of which your sure to run into when you start shopping for your new Fall musts. You can blame Marc Jacobs for the re-introduction of bold leggings/tights for this season, with the blinding embellished and printed pairs all over the Louis Vuitton runway, but the agreement of the statement necklace as a major must is almost universal.
Having fun while dressing, and stepping trends in the process. What's not to love about Julia Frakes?
