Five style icons in Spring looks I love. I am not shopping now, except for rice, beans, and alcohol (both kinds). Like most of us I am browsing fashion blogs, putting things in my cart and leaving them there, and eyeballing the Spring styles in the iCloud. What I am wearing most days would not get me a photo shoot in Reader’s Digest, unless “normcore” makes a revival. 😊
In my browsing hours, I’ve come across past and current style icons dressed beautifully for Spring. It’s heartening to look forward to a day of putting on real clothes again. And more important, a day with no “new virus cases” on the charts and people safely back to work/play. I hope you’ll get a lift out of these selections, and tell me about your own Spring role models.
Lauren Bacall. Elegant, simple and polished style, with every hair in place. That does not resemble me at all, but I would love to borrow this jumpsuit from the 1940’s (similar, modern). I think I need those espadrilles too.
Jane Birkin. One of the original Boho icons in the 1960’s, always effortless and looking so, so French. Her outfits translate directly to today, because of their classic casual simplicity. It doesn’t hurt that she was long and lean, and has wonderful hair.
Tracee Ellis Ross. Always modern, a bit of edge, and so in tune with how she wants to present herself. She’s a new style icon who makes bold, personal choices.
Helen Mirren. I know she’s on everyone’s list for gorgeous over 50! I can’t resist including her because she knows her style, and rocks it every time.
Iris Apfel (and Karlie Kloss). Iris is 90+ and Karlie is in her early 20’s, and they both look terrific. I love how Iris makes any look her own with signature touches: polka dot socks, and oversized collar bow, and of course those glasses. Karlie is simply lovely in her Spring white fit-and-flare dress and platform sandals.
