Style icon Series- Jean Shrimpton

I have decided to start a series where I share some of my top style icons and then I will try and create a look in response to their style, including makeup, hair and clothing. Jean Shrimpton was an icon of Swinging London in the Sixties and one of the world’s first supermodels. Jean was photographer David Bailey’s muse and his initial photoshoot of her jet-setted her career – she is said to have ‘The face of the Sixties’, representing the youthquake of the decade.

  • Hair- Voluminous hair with side fringe
  • Makeup- Wide doe eyes, arched brows and pouty lips
  • Fashion- 60’s style- mini skirts, shift dresses, op art etc.

My Jean Shrimpton Look

For my Jean Shrimpton look I have put my hair up into a beehive hairstyle with side-parting. For makeup I have applied winged eye liner, lots of mascara and nude lips (I would have added some fake eyelashes to this look if I’d have had some). For clothing I wore my Banana Republic monochrome checked top and then I added some vintage silver diamante jewelry. Hope you like!- Enjoy!

NAVY- OOTD

Hey guys! Today’s post is an OOTD featuring 2 navy garments. Navy is a go-to shade for me all year round and I believe it should be approached in the same way as black- wear it all over to create an effortless look. Navy suits me better than black as it’s less harsh against my pale skin tone and it has become my comfort zone shade, especially during winter. I have paired this Topshop textured navy high-neck top with Zara navy wool A-line skirt. Then, I added M&S grey wool tights, Oh My Love burgundy cape, Hobbs burgundy brogues with gold studding and Navy Cambridge Satchel. I believe when wearing the same colour on both top and bottom varying texture is essential in order to add interest to the outfit as a whole. Hope you are all having a good weekend- Enjoy!
