Iconic Style: Jane Birkin

Lately, when it comes to style, I've been all about the sixties and seventies! The boho look is everywhere, and since I live in an environment where that look totally works, I do indulge in the bell sleeve, bell bottom, Stevie Nicks look from time to time. Since my personal style still tends toward the more classic, I love Jane Birkin's style which seems to marry the whole boho thing with clean and simple lines and little to no pattern. I also love that a woman with a very expensive and very famous handbag named for her spent most of her time carrying her belongings in a basket. How is that for irony? And, a sense of irony is a key component in much great style!

 Here, a classic French Girl look: loose top knot, perfect fitting white t-shirt, and tattered denim

 Often, the bohemian look feels so summery. Here is a perfect autumn look: over-the-knee black boots with jeans and a black pull over.

A great way to take your cut-off shorts into the cooler temps or if you're not quite prepared to bare your legs all that much. A pair of opaque tights and mary janes finish off what would be an ultra casual look, and upgrade it for brunch or Saturday shopping. The girls in Paris are still working this look; I've seen it all over!
