There are only a handful of true style icons out there and you could be one of them! Some of my style icons are Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor, and Sophia Loren. So clearly, my favorite style "era" are the 50s. I also love the 40s and 60s but the 50s suit my body type more.
So, one of the best ways to tell what your "Icon" style type would be is to figure out what you love. Are you a 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, or 70s kind of girl?
Another important part of being a style icon is to mix vintage with new trends and styles. Don't go overboard with everything being from the 40s and 50s. You don't want to look like you're in a time warp. Also, try not to copy any look exactly-it can be boring and style icons are never boring!
Try to pick an era that suits your figure. If you're very straight and thin, 20s inspired pieces will fit your shape more so than a 50s style would. If you're curvy with a tiny waist, 50s styles would be your best bet. So start adding a little vintage into your life!
I'll be adding some info about trends and styles for different decades in the next few posts so watch out for that:-)
