Style Icon: Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin is an English actress and singer who is most frequently cited as a style icon particularly when it comes to 1970s or French girl fashion. Jane is well known for her partnership with singer Serge Gainsbourg during the 1970s, and for being the namesake of the famous Hermes handbag. Most recently the status symbol of the bag has undergone a change when she asked her name be removed due to the cruel way the bags were made.

Style Crush: Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie is a mother, an entrepreneur, and a style icon. Despite her numerous life experiences that have made her tabloid fodder, her style has been the one thing that has stood out to me. It has changed significantly since she was introduced to the masses as Paris Hilton’s traveling companion on the Simple Life back in 2003. She is hilarious, original, and not afraid to be herself. She also has a pretty cool name..not that I’m biased.

Nicole has her own line House of Harlow 1960 which originally began as jewelry, but has now grown to an entire range of items. The line most recently launched a collection with Revolve and includes plenty of great pieces (featured below). What I like most about Nicole’s style is how simple pieces are paired with trendy pieces and together create a classic look. She embraces trends and even creates them herself.

The looks I’ve chosen to feature here are looks that encompass the idea I mentioned above. They are looks that can be worn just about anywhere, aren’t too loud or trendy, and the pieces could be mixed and matched to create even more looks. They are incredibly easy to pull off because they are put together but casual enough to be worn for any occasion. There are a variety of looks featured so it’s easy to find something new to try or a classic to recreate.

Kate Moss x Equipment

Kate Moss has always been my jam. Well, until she said nothing tastes as good as skinny feels because clearly homegirl had never had an amazing slice of pizza or a burger from Shake Shack. Growing up in the 90s, Kate was everywhere. Including iconic Calvin Klein ads and was known for her “waif” figure. Quite controversial in the 90s. But controversy has always surrounded Kate, but we won’t discuss any of that nonsense.

Kate has dabbled in quite a few collections from fashion to beauty including lines with Topshop and Rimmel (including one of my favorite lipsticks of all time). Now she has just released a capsule collection with Equipment. Equipment revolutionized the ready-to-wear fashion industry with separates for women with hint of menswear inspiration. Currently they specialize in luxury shirts which is what makes this capsule collection so ideal.

All of the pieces are true to the Kate Moss rock n’ roll sensibility. She’s insanely cool and all of the clothing in the collection reflects that. They are easy to wear and mix and match for the perfect rock and roll inspired look. There are honestly so many good pieces it was hard to choose my favorites so go have a look for yourself here and see some images from the lookbook below.
