Style is so much more than the clothes you wear. It’s a story of the way your clothes interact with your hairstyle, makeup, body language, and attitude.
When I look for style inspiration, I consider all of these factors. Nearly 3 years ago I chopped my hair off and immediately realized that a closet make over was necessary to complement my new do. Obviously I began looking at other pixie hair ladies I had known to be stylish for guidance. Twiggy, Jean Seberg, Winona Ryder, Halle Berry, Edie Sedwick all came to mind and quickly I gathered cues as to what made their haircuts successful. The common thread amongst all the women was their chic simplicity. Understanding that this masculine haircut needed to be balanced with feminine touches greatly influenced purchases I’ve made in the last few years, always keeping in mind that nothing beats a cohesive look. Many fashions made popular in the 60’s also began to creep into my wardrobe, cropped black pants, wingtips, striped shirts, shift dresses just to name a few…. throw in some red lipstick when I’m feeling particularly bold, a fur coat, leather and a few variations of military jackets and that essentially captures my style today.
I recently had the opportunity to work with a great photographer (Lizabeth Nieves) on a portrait series. She mentioned her love for Edie, so we agreed that the shoot would be influenced by her iconic style. Below are the results. To check out more of Liz’s photography click here.
