“With what seemed like a single movement she tore off her clothes and flung them disdainfully aside. Her body was white and smooth, but it aroused no desire in him; indeed, he barely looked at it. What overwhelmed him in that instant was admiration for the gesture with which she had thrown her clothes aside. With its grace and carelessness it seemed to annihilate a whole culture, a whole system of thought…”
– George Orwell, 1984
I love how Orwell describes this woman. She is seductive, but not in a sexual way. She is a free woman, loose and carefree, embracing life and throwing out the status quo. Here are some sketches of women who reflect that in their clothing. They aren’t impressive, but they are simple, uncomplicated. Each of these outfits could be thrown off in one swift, careless movement.
Lets try to be loose and carefree this weekend, ok? Even if that just means staying up past midnight with a bowl of ice cream topped with things you shouldn’t eat with no pants on. George would be so proud.
