While we're still relishing in the final weeks of a coastal grandmother and Meredith Blake summer, there's a new East Coast prep-adjacent style on the horizon for fall: Plazacore. The main inspiration for the aptly-named Plazacore is childhood literary figure and style icon Eloise from the book series and subsequent film Eloise at the Plaza.
In case you're unfamiliar with the children's book, Eloise at the Plaza revolves around a precocious six-year-old girl living in New York City's Plaza Hotel. The diminutive diva has a penchant for mildly terrorizing her nanny, stirring up mischief, and having impeccable style.
This ruched blouse feels like a 2022 version of Eloise's signature ensemble.
Plazacore puts an adult twist on Eloise's prim blouse-and-mini-skirt ensemble with influences from fellow queens of spoiled girl style, Blair Waldorf and Cher Horowitz. This generation's love for the '90s is also evident, as vintage Chanel-esque matching sets and tweed jackets are a clear inspiration for plazacore. The result is a perfectly preppy blend of Eloise-approved staples with a grown-up sensibility: bows and blazers, pastels and pearls, Mary Janes, and mini skirts.
This tweed blazer reminds us of old-school Chanel in the best way, without the Chanel price tag.
To help you get the look, we've curated a selection of apparel we could totally see a grown-up Eloise wearing in 2022. From an argyle skirt set to a pearl-encrusted headband to hotel-quality loungewear you can wear at home, here are our favorite Plazacore-inspired styles for bringing out your inner child.
