In a time of vulgar rap music, skintight leggings, and high, high stilettos, there are still many Fashionistas inspired by the trends of the past. Role models like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly or Jackie O paved the way in creating a chic look for the modern woman. These fashion icons emphasized class by dressing in the most feminine ways. For these women, simplicity and modesty was the way to show off their personal senses of style. They are all still major style icons in today’s society and their anything but basic styles still inspire Fashionistas today.
This Fashionista takes notes from the most beautiful women of the past by creating a chic ensemble with very feminine touches. Her asymmetrical cream-colored button-down blouse caught my eye; this modern twist on the classic blouse is a great way to bring a basic top to a new level. The sheerness and soft chiffon texture also add a feminine touch to this modern take on the button-down blouse.
Her ladylike accessories are what pull the outfit all together. Pearls are always a classy accessory, and this Fashionista makes a playful attempt with her neck accessory. Knotted at the waist, her long strand of pearls is the perfect touch to her classic ensemble. Also, her bright green quilted purse adds the perfect pop of color to her neutral-colored outfit as well. She allows her shirt and accessories to take center stage by wearing a pair of dark colored straight leg jeans and basic black ballet flats.
Taking inspiration from classic fashion icons of the past is always a “do.” So ladies, throw on your classic ladylike blouse, chic dark cuffed jeans, and grab brunch or sip on some afternoon tea with your fellow females and feel the classic blast from the past!
