Elle Fanning, the new trend setter in young Hollywood has quite an inspirational and eye catchy wardrobe that puts most of the over dressers and under dressers in place. Even at 13, she has fans and critics guessing hard what she's going to turn up in, before every event she attends. Effortless, chic, girly, preppy and minimalistic is all that defines this little trendy actor's sense of style.
Style secrets to steal from her wardrobe
1. Age Apt!
Her style is effortless yet very chic and age appropriate. She dresses up in feminine attire that enhances her child-like charm and does not come off as either trying too hard or careless. She understands her age and what seems best for her and accordingly picks up an outfit to go in for an event.
2. Understand your body type
She knows what suits her and sticks to it, nothing too flashy or out of the ordinary and at the same time is sure to make a statement. Her silhouette is of an average girl in her teens and she sticks to styles and clothes that beautify her image than coming off as too racy or 'over-grown'.
3. Occasion friendly
Fanning understands the demand of the hour and focuses her event attire to the need of it. Nothing to overplay or underplay her. A red carpet awards show or a fancy evening event calls for a feminine dress and a casual run to the grocery store or brunch is done effortlessly in a plaid shirt and a tulip skirt.
4. Modesty is the best policy!
She loves to play it safe than sorry. So with her girl next door looks goes her chic, preppy style. A dress that just sits just right and a neckline that is just appropriate, pull on some ankle booties in brogue style and a ruffly bib necklace and be out the door Elle Fanning style.
5. Shoe love
Her style can be achieved with the right kind of feet and she prefers to do that in her comfortable Mary Janes or Brogues. A pair of wedges ankle boots here and a pair of block heeled stilettos there also work.
She owns a collection of dresses ranging from A - line, baby - doll, trapeze that fit her body amazingly well and keep her looking just as she is, a young teenage actor.
7. Accessorize less
Elle Fanning is known to walk around in minimal baggage. No over hounding of rings on her fingers or neckline, no multiple belts, bow ties or armlets weighing her frame down. Minimum to none is her style and quite evidently she knows how to work it well.
Elle keeps her hair simple like her minimalistic, girly - chic style. It is either pulled back or a middle parted and down . She has naturally straight hair that fall a couple inches below her shoulders making it easy for her to move around in a chic ponytail or bun as and when she likes.
9. Comfort first
Fanning prefers to keep it simple. Being a busy girl living two lives where one boasts of glamor and the other simplicity, she does an effortless job balancing the two. She does all things that any teen her age does, goes to school, hangs out with her friends, watches movies and even makes some. All this requires so much running around that she manages in her pre-thought attire where she pays extra attention to comfort, be it with her flat brogues or comfy shirts, comfort always comes first.
10. Sisterly love
Elle's other secret is playing dress up in her elder sister Dakota Fanning's closet. She loves to mix and match pieces together from Dakota's wardrobe and experiment with new looks. Also, now since she is moving away for college, little sister Elle feels quite sad about the whole setup.
11. Centralize it
Elle Fanning approaches the look for the day by picking out a dress or an outfit and making it the center of attention while adding minimal accessories and shoes around it. This makes dressing up easier and helps her coordinate her outfit with all the other cute additions.
