Whether you loved or hated “To Kill a Mockingbird”, its status as a literary classic is undeniable. Now Harper Lee, the author of the Pulitzer Prize winning book, has just announced that she will release a sequel to “To Kill a Mockingbird”. The precocious Scout and her wise father Atticus Finch will be making their comeback in Lee’s new novel, “Go Set a Watchman.”

While we eagerly await Lee’s sequel, we can’t help but wonder how Scout’s style has changed over the years. The 1962 film version of the text pictured Scout with a tomboy aesthetic complete with button downs, overalls, and collared dresses. “Go Set a Watchman” features the beloved Scout as a matured young woman and, if Scout is as steadfast as she was before, it is safe to assume that the key elements of her style have remained the same too.

This spring may be a flashback to the 70s, but today we’re focusing on reinventing Scout’s style from the 30s. Feminine forms, a minimal color palette, and––of course––Scout’s signature overalls all make an appearance.
