The Hutsons' daughters are mirroring their sons for now, with the tweedy outerwear, long john-style trousers, and brocade dinner jackets the duo made for the boys tweaked with higher waists and slightly more pronounced curves for the girls. It's a smart tactic. These designers have the preppy-rebel look down pat, and it's an aesthetic that appeals to a lot of women who want clothes that have the straightforward unfussiness of their boyfriends' and husbands' wardrobes. In fact, with their mussed hair and getting-away-with-it smiles, the girls in this show looked cooler than the boys.
