Be the ‘Bawse lady’ with the rich and humble bougie dressing

We can’t be more thankful to our fashion gods for bringing the retro style back to the fashion charts, it’s the bougie-girl dressing we are talking about! If you’re done having your share with active and streetwear style now is the time to transform your look into the bougie lady but with a chic spin. Travelling all the way from the fashion diaries of the 1970s, the look with bow blouses and aesthetic blazers paired with pleated skirts was profoundly seen on the runways of 2019 fall collection. As inspired by the French woman look, it suggests a way of dressing which is luxurious in lifestyle yet humble in character and to help you recreate this high-toned style, we filled our buckets with the bougie-esque outfits that walked the Fall 2019 runway. 

What’s more? The recreation of this opulence is just a read away!

Celine's caramel brown pleated skirt with country checks paired with the intense black blazer and a logo imprinted scarf makes for a perfect autumn bourgeoisie. Own this stunning look with Alexander McQueen’s black single button blazer, Steffen Schraut's pleated check skirt and to add an ultra-feminine character, wear Burberry's foulard scarf.

Gucci’s pearl-white sophistication

Gucci made its fall fashion a blend between aesthetic beauty and glam, out of which the look where a model graced the ramp donning a gorgeous double-breasted pearl-white blazer embellished with golden vintage-ish buttons and neat side pockets. We loved how this already empowered blazer has been teamed with a wide-pleat skirt, tie and a shirt, keeping everything in tonal colour. Recreate this typical 'bawse lady' look with Balmain's iconic double-breasted blazer with medallion buttons and  Prada's super-elegant poplin skirt to tuck perfectly at high waist, and of course, without the tie this look is incomplete, we like Dolce and Gabbana's silk tie.

Burberry's romantic swirl 

If you are all game to embody the rich girl dressing, add a pinch of delicateness by keeping the tones of your attire coral and pastel. Just like Burberry’s take on blazer and skirt combination! Own this look with Tagliatore's Jasmine V-neck blazer and pair it with Valentino's pleated dessert pink midi skirt and if you’d like to make the look literally identical then consider adding the silk printed shirt by Reinaldo Lourenco in your cart!

Tod’s bold leather comeback

Good news for all the fashion enthusiasts who love leather eternally and have long waited the whole summer to wear it, not only can you wear it very soon but can also experiment this bougie-girl style with your leather collectables. Take inspiration from Tod's iteration of the trend with an elegantly tailored black leather blazer paired with an earthy-brown leather shirt and the matte-black knee-length skirt. Here’s a handy recreation: Slip into Versace's leather blazer featuring the notched lapels and wear it along with Blanca's brown leather slim-fit shirt and Valentino's pleated matte-silk skirt. We also love the small leather tote by Hunting Season that goes perfectly with the look!

Proenza Schouler’s oversized comfort 

Proenza Schouler's oversized take on this trend is what we suggest if you do not like to compromise on comfort even a tad bit – the breezy fit and comfy tailoring is all you should be looking for in the counterparts. The combination of the blue blazer with exaggerated collars and meticulously pleated blush-pink skirt steps a level up owing to the uber-cool knitted turtle-neck top and glossy black boots! Here's a similar look to own: Wear Stella McCartney’s Mattea blazer offering a relaxed silhouette, Nic+Zoe's stripe pleat skirt, and cease the look with Gianvito Rossi's leather knee boots dipped in lustrous black colour!
