Channel Audrey

May 03, 2010

I believe that Audrey Hepburn is one of the most beautiful, sophisticated, and stylish women who has  lived. This Fashionista has channeled the fashion icon’s classic style with a bit of a modern twist.

This Fashionista is wearing a sleek, cream-colored overcoat over opaque black tights with an adorable pair of schoolgirl ballet flats. Her classic overcoat has a stark, contrasting black ribbon, cinching the waist. This Fashionista’s spring trench has a surprising graphic pattern on the back. She has paired this black and white combo with a bold, mother-of-pearl pendent on a simple black cord.

To channel Audrey yourself, seek out feminine, youthful details like bows, large buttons, color-blocking, simple silhouettes, and high collars. Try:

As for makeup, keep your face simple, clean, and neutral with:

Mad Men Retro

December 28, 2009

This holiday season, go mad. As in that great, retro-inspired wardrobe of the television drama Mad Men. The Fashionisto is capturing that 1960’s sophistication with a brown blazer and a dusty lavender silk tie.

To create a similar look, start out with this crisp, white button-down shirt. Then pair a lux blazer with classic black slacks when you’re out at a holiday party, or dress it down with a pair of great jeans for Christmas shopping with friends. As for neck wear, try this skinny tie or this elegant bow tie. And don’t forget these Buddy Holly glasses to really make a statement when building a gingerbread house and sipping hot chocolate with your little sister.

Hint: Keep the ensemble modern with a pop of color; try this cobalt blue rubber watch or these vivid red suspenders. Ladies, these also make great gifts for all the Fashionistos in your life.

Happy Holidays!
