Margaret Lockwood's Preppy & Polished Look... And How To Get It

Margaret Lockwood's sultry and dramatic looks allowed her to play villainous roles in films like "The Wicked Lady" and "The Man in Grey," but she is far from lethal in this 1946 photo with her then-5-year-old daughter Julia. Lockwood's striped shirt, printed scarf, tapered trousers, and peep-toe sandals, not to mention her deep brown curls, bright pink lipstick and matching pearls complete this polished look. And while most of us can't wear children's clothes (unless you're Sarah Leon's awesome mom!), we may take a style tip or two from little Julia. Cardigan topped sundresses and wispy braids anyone?
