The Gamine is one of the main types. The type has a playful or slightly mischievous look, typically wide-eyed and with a fairly straight figure. The best look is straight or tailored, a broken line (e.g. obvious contrast between top and bottom), and small and fun, unexpected details. The Gamine does well with slightly boyish touches, such as a pair of brogues or man-tailored trousers. The type is flattered by combining the boyish with the feminine, the narrow with the boxy and the cute with the edgy.

Worst looks are elongated unbroken lines, floaty and unstructured silhouettes, and tightly cinched outfits with waist and bust emphasis.

Celebrity examples: Audrey Tautou and Audrey Hepburn.
