Noun: A girl with mischievous or boyish charm.

Adjective: Characteristic of or relating to such a girl.

  I’ve just recently become reacquainted with the term “Gamine” meaning a spiritedly mischievous woman. The aesthetic always includes clean lines and simplicity. Striped boat neck T’s, pearl earrings and simple a-line dresses and skirts embody the gamine look. Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O, Jean Seaberg, Audrey Tautou and Coco Chanel are wonderful examples. The gamine woman is boyish and playful while keeping a feminine presence.
