When Alessandro Michele took the reins at Gucci last year, the designer injected the 95-year-old house with a near kinetic energy. Where there had been polished understatement before, Michele’s Gucci girl was a winsome creature with a Wes Andersonian spirit. It’s a look that has rippled through fashion in seasons since—and triggered a new appreciation for unconventional beauty.
Happily, the look is easy to achieve with a low-maintenance approach—think soft textured waves, rumpled by your pillowcase at night and clipped back by a humble bobby pin. Foundation becomes redundant with a religious devotion to SPF 100+, which keeps your complexion flawless and gleaming year-round, while a slick of lip balm adds a practical sheen.
Forget the brow pencil, too: A barely there arch is all that’s required, thanks to that signature pair of geek-chic glasses. The twee vintage-style frames bring an off-kilter charm to the face, tying the whole look together. Here, ahead of the Fall 2016 show, the anatomy of a Gucci girl’s beauty routine, broken down into five simple steps to try at home.
