When you think of the term “classic,” it’s no surprise that fashion and movie icons like Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe pop into your mind. These fierce and fabulous ladies paved the way for modern day style trends we Fashionistas capitalize on today. While it may feel virtually impossible to live up to the standards these style icons set for fashion forward years to come, it’s possible to channel the demure and grandeur vibes of your favorite classy ladies in your everyday look.
This Fashionista brought the phrase “keep it classy” to a whole new level, and I’m loving every bit of it. While she stayed true to her own style and kept it quirky and casual with a combination of polka-dot shorts and classic Converse, her accessories bring the look to a new level of elegance and timelessness. By adding a leather cross-body bag and versatile tortoise shell sunglasses, this outfit is perfect for any occasion. Her gold, drop necklace adds a subtle charm and glam factor reminiscent of Breakfast At Tiffany’s to tie the look together. While each of these pieces never go out of style (channeling Taylor Swift, obviously), they work together to create a truly unique and classic look.
How To: It’s easier than you think to keep it classy, y’all. Ever heard the saying “less is more”? That rings true with the details too! Stick to neutral tones and minimalistic accessories to keep your look clean and simple. Even the most basic staple pieces can be used to your advantage. Keep them in your Fashionista arsenal!
