Style Icons

We spend a lot of time blogging about key items. Some of you may be tired of hearing it, so we thought it would be fun today to take a look at some of the timeless pieces that have been worn over the years and how they still look great today. Certainly there are pieces that have been worn over the years that DO NOT still look ok, but there are definitely others that do and we want to focus on those.

 

No list can be complete without this look from Audrey Hepburn. How cute is this?! The look could be assembled at many stores today, from the bateau neck striped top, to the ankle pants, and feminine flats.

Another great Audrey look is this shift dress. Again completely timeless. The only thing you might need to change is your hair. 

We could go on all day with looks from Audrey Hepburn, and maybe we'll do that in a later blog, but now we want to highlight some other fun style icons. Next up is Grace Kelly. This look is quite simple and we selected it because of the importance of turtlenecks last season and the popularity of sweaters this season. We love the slight cowl neck and of course it's paired with the always important black pants.  You can't forget a great pair of sunglasses to complete your stylish look.

Jackie O is another name synonymous with style. This look is a simple sheath dress. Think of it as your day to evening dress or evening you LBD. You've heard us say it many times, every woman needs these. If you buy the right dresses you'll be looking great in them for years.  

Known for her amazing designs, Coco Chanel has influenced fashion in countless ways. We love this picture because, again, it's those classic stripes paired with a slightly higher waist, wider leg pant. Yes, this style is coming back, but truth be told, for all of you out there that don't love the skinny pant look, you were smart if you stayed with this classic look. 

Last we have Princess Kate, who we think people will be looking at as one of their favorite style icons for years to come. 

We think it's so much fun to look through style icon images. The common theme among all of these is that the looks are quite simple. So remember that next time you are stressed about putting together an outfit.
