Ladylike looks ruled the fall 2013 runways—but with a twist. The freshest way to wear the trend? Take a playful approach: add a subversive accessory to a tea dress, trade your sleek chignon for just-out-of-bed waves, or pair a flouncy evening gown with flats. These street style stars—all snapped at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014—offer fashion inspiration for every take on the trend, from girly to glam, sweet to sexy. (Hint: crop tops ahead.)

What makes it modern: The edgy accessories (love the Rolling Stones pin worn as a brooch!) Paris-street-style-ladylike A pencil skirt and pumps—essentials for any ladylike work wardrobe. What makes it modern: Take your pick—the texture of the skirt, the animal print jacket, the silver shoes.

The bag, which—in pics, at least—looks a little pedestrian. We vote for a hot pink clutch. (More fall bag ideas here!)
