I’m only two episodes into the newest season of Skins and am already loving the fashions. Overall, the styles are somewhat reminiscent of the eighties – leggings galore, bike shorts, big earrings and crazy pony tails – but one character in particular has got me yearning for a pixie and new blazer – Franky Fitzgerald.
Franky (short for Franchesca) sports an androgynous style by mixing collared shirts with oxfords. Some days her look screams Oliver Twist, while others Twiggy. I love how she plays with gender roles through her appearance.
So, Skins fans, keep an eye out for Frankie’s sweet style and keep me posted with what you like about the series thus far.
Fun fact: Dakota Blue Richards, the actress who plays Franky was the star in the 2007 film The Golden Compass. I’m looking forward to seeing where her career goes after this show.
