Some people an amazing quality to look fashinable even wearing very simple clothes.
James Dean was one of them: Lee 101 Rider jeans, white T-shirt and leather jacket – and here it is one of the greatest style icons of XX century.
By the way James Dean’s wardrobe suits girls very well too.
Mom Jean High Waist Tapered by Lee and Vanessa Tee by Swedish brand Lexington – the base of the outfit. Legendary actor was often seen in G.H. Bass weejuns and modern girl’s version Lillian Colorblock Weejuns looks cute too. James Dean was often seen wearing eyeglasses too, he wore them not because he wanted to look more smart, but because he was very short-sighted. Cult made a great reproduction of James Dean’s spectacles (all Cult’s frames are handmade by the way). I like Fairmount Black/Crystal model (if your eyes are working well and do not require correction you can wear that frames wit lenses without diopters or tinted lenses).
Anya Hindmarch‘s Maxi All Over Stickers Featherweight Ebury with funny prints or navy-and-white Merge Maxi Featherweight Ebury bag will be a pretty addition to a rebel without a case girl outfit.
To not disapear in bright extravagant dress you have to possess a special talent (which is very rare, to be honest) and accessorise it very carefully.
That’s why I’m a big fan of “plain” dresses like Еscot Dress by Katherine Hooker. Silver Nepalese – Amazing Turquoise Cuff and Bracelet Nepalese – Turquoise Drop Earrings by Australian brand Shantique Designs, red The Mini Hepburn Bag by Aspinal of London and red Stila Patent Leather Court pumps by L.K.Bennett will fashionable with this simple wool dress, I guess.
Melton Cape with buffalo horn toggles and leather loops fastening by Gloverall will look even more fashionable with Carrot Trousers by Paule Ka, elegant Martha brogue by Grenson and Leo Clutch by Rebecca Minkoff.
Abercrombie & Fitch‘s designers created very cute graphics and placed them on T-shirts.
White Charlie Brown Graphic Tee and Grinch Graphic Tee and dark Graphic Crew Tee Navy Flower and Get Done Graphic Tee will look pretty stylish with A&F High Rise Boot Jeans by Abercrombie & Fitch and any jackets or cardigans I suppose.
Simple but elegant navy merino wool dress Kew 159 by TK Maxx will make stylish outfit with simple but elegant silver Stud Earrings with Amethyst and Extra Small Bracelet 4.7 mm with Amethyst by John Hardy, cute Coco Silver Glitter clutch with bee by Wilbur & Gussie and Steep pumps by Stuart Weitzman.
Mae West – the best proof that sex appeal is more about personality, self-confidence and wit than pretty face and tits and hips measurements – was only 5 feet tall and for sure has few extra kg. Elsa Schiaparelli created for Mae West beautiful costumes which made actress look slimmer and taller in comedy Every Day’s a Holiday.
Legendary designer used simple tricks (most effective tricks are usually very simple): contrasting vertical lines and patterns on clothes helps you to get rid of 1 or 2 kg and add to your height few inches (only visually unfortunately).
Right hat can make look taller too.
Chic feathers on extravagant actress who’s playing extravagant character.
By the way all those tricks work very well on Lady Gaga, who’s not tall too (her height is only 155 cm) and not in her best shape at the moment.
Pretty Moon Gazing Cat Brooch by British brand Pia will look cute on Esteban Coat made by Italian label Pinko. American blanket-scarf Donni Comfy by Donni Charm and Crusader f boots by German brand Trippen will look stylish with these puss and coat, I guess.
And for sure French bags by Tiffany & Fred – brown Style 1501 and golden Style 3811 won’t spoil this international outfit.
