Everyone loves Alice Cullen. She’s the tiniest of the Cullen family and very pixie-like. Her loves include fashion, bright shiny yellow sports cars, and throwing a party. Oh and Jasper. 😉 Whether you want to adapt her style to your own wardrobe full time or come up with the perfect Alice costume for a party or for Halloween, this how-to is for you.
Alice is well known for dressing in an analogous color scheme. She wears a lot of blacks, grays, whites, purples, and blues. Occasionally other colors make it into her look, but this style maven uses them as highlights and regulates this flashes of color to her accessories.
Alice loves empire waists and they look fabulous on her. In Twilight, she wore a very cute gray tiered floral pattern empire waist dress and paired it with black leggings and a long sleeve black lace sweater. In New Moon she donned a cute dressy purple ensemble for Bella’s fated birthday party. If you want to feel super cute and chic adding a few empire waist dresses to your wardrobe is the way to go.
