For today's Character Style post I've once again taken inspiration from American Horror Story, this time focusing on Freak Show's faux fortune teller Maggie Esmerelda (Emma Roberts).

Both Maggie's on and off-duty styles incorporate midi and maxi length skirts often paired with tops that are cinched in at the waist. For her role as a fortune teller in the show Maggie can be found sporting peasant style blouses with embroidered detailing however off the clock she tends to opt for classic short sleeve knits like those pictured above.

When it comes to accessorising wool felted hats, statement earrings, hair scarves and large decorative belts all make frequent appearances in Maggie's outfits. Beauty-wise her look reflects that of the early 50's era in which the series is set with bold red lips and soft, tidy pin curls.

Here are my top picks for a modern day take on this 50's look...
