Are you bold and daring? Then the ‘It-Girl’ style is for you.  The It Girl style is all about separating an outfit from an outfit. This is to find the balance in being a little extra but not wearing a costume, mix and matching but not looking like clown, accessorizing but not wearing everything in your wardrobe. The It Girl style is for the  Bold of girl who is ready to try new things and carry it off with all the confidence in the world.  
The It Girl is wearing a colourful printed shift dress with a white leather crop jacket styled with a fish net ankle length red socks, funky red heels and carrying a yellow bag.
Being modest doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish! There’s a lot you can do to look absolutely chic in what makes you feel comfortable. The Modest Glam Girl style is for women who like to dress up modestly while achieving a glamourous look at the same time. 
Our modest glam girl is wearing a long dusty pink cardigan together with black leather pants and top with a lace up crochet boots in nude and a hijab.
Here’s one for the free spirited girl! This 70’s inspired look is back in style and is perfect for the girl with a wild side. Flowy pants and Bold colours; the right clothes paired with the right accessories will have you looking boho chic!
Our Boho look is a long oversized drapy pants worn with a handwoven top, a turban and is accessorized with an embroidered backpack and heels. 
This is for the girl who is extra with a style so unique to herself that she’s immediately the coolest girl in the room. Her style is effortless but focused and she’s got confidence that she can pull off absolutely anything – and she does!
