Coming up with five fashion icons was not easy! There are a lot of women (or characters in television shows) who have great style that I like to either just watch or emulate. As I started to draft my top five, however, there was one theme that was pervasive for all of them: their dress or wardrobing was their essence, their self-expression. So while I may not dress like all these women (although they are pretty safe selections), I like the idea that dress is an expression of self, and not something separate. So here goes.
My fashion icons (excluding you and my family for today):
Mary was herself: fun, modest, professional, just a little flirty, independent.
I know it’s cliche, but….
Her mimalist style won my heart. On the days that I just can’t go be wildly creative, I go Audrey with a sleek look and ballet flats. And I thank her for making a streamlined look be effortless style.
