Just as this Summer was officially “Hot Girl Summer”, the past few months have seen the beginning of “Cool girl Autumn” and we’re so happy to see that it’s beginning to continue into the Winter months. Never heard of “Cool Girls”? Up until a few week ago neither had I, but let me tell you that you definitely have a Cool Girl in your life! When I think about it, two people that really spring to mind are Bella Hadid and Jennifer Aniston. These girls are effortlessly cool and chic, all of their outfits seem to be put together without seeming like you’re “trying too hard” (is it just me that hates this expression?) They’re the girls that show up to brunch in a unique, on trend, low effort ‘fit that showcases their amazing personality and just somehow works, only to tell you that they rolled out of bed 20 minutes earlier. You’re not sure whether you love or hate this girl for how cool she is, but you do know one thing: you want to be her. And with these style staples you can!
The starting point of any Cool Girl outfit? The right jeans! We fully believe that jeans are truly such a versatile style that can be dressed down with trainers or boots and dressed up with heels. The Caspian Jeans from Dr Denim would be perfect as it can be worn with almost any pair of shoes. We love jeans in particular with a white button down for the ultimate relaxed, low effort look. Our Cool Girls are also huge fans of a contrasted look. Think a dress with chunky trainers or straight legged jeans with heels for that masculine yet feminine look.
Another staple is high quality clothing, as these girls will really tend to go for investment pieces that will last them years rather than more budget friendly but low quality styles. We think we might have found the best of both worlds with our Only Grey Longline Belted Shacket. We love the high quality of this brand along with the affordable price point. The neutral colour and simple style of this one would really make it one that you can wear again year after year. This is also such a low effort style that is still flattering with the tie detail at the waistline which would add shape to the silhouette.
When it comes to footwear we’ve got countless options! When going for a more chilled look trainers are always a great idea, just like these chunky trainers from Only. We always love this style paired with jeans for a casual, low effort weekend look, or with a dress to bring a masculine edge to such a feminine piece. If you’re looking to dress up a little bit more you can always go with heels like these olive sandals from Only. This is the perfect way to add a feminine twist to any outfit, whether it’s a satin mini dress for a night out or ripped jeans for date night over the weekend. The colour and faux leather material of this one will make them a real statement piece that will turn heads in a completely effortless way.
As I’m sure you all know we’re huge lovers of a good blazer in GTT so were so glad to hear that we can still wear one of our favourite styles while still participating in Cool Girl season! An oversized blazer never seems to go out of style and is always an easy style to throw on and pull any outfit together in an effortlessly chic way. Blazers always bring a more formal feel to an outfit so a replaced, oversized fit will really contrast this.
Oversized, chunky knit sweatshirts are always another staple to keep your ‘fit looking chic and on-trend. We love this look with fitted jeans to help add shape to the body and heels to add a more formal feel to the outfit, while the chunky knit jumper really adds that while low-effort feel to the look!
Cool Girls know that the right accessories can make or break their outfit, and usually tend to go for layered jewellery to really nail that whole effortlessly cool look. This one from Mo Stór is one of our current favourites as it’s simple enough to be worn with any outfit and really become a style staple, and is delicate enough to really add a sweet, feminine feel to your look.
