Style x 2

 

As I was searching for some inspiration for possible new sunglasses, I came across style icons Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway in The Thomas Crown Affair (great movie and will watch again on my upcoming trip).  Not only the eyewear but the fisherman sweater, trench, headscarf, and neutral tones have me thinking they exude cool, perfect style.  These pics also reaffirm that all these pieces should be in everyone’s wardrobe.  They are timeless and classic.  What else can I say?  I just recently checked off the fisherman sweater and love it.  I will be trying on the SM iconic style Persol’s 649- Originals as well as the ISBA from Oliver Peoples.  Trenches and scarves, every stylish designer has their take in this department.  So find your favorite and it will be worth the investment.

Always Good With Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin is without a doubt a style icon.  The pictures say it all!  Her timeless and classic beauty inspires all (isostilo included).  She has an effortless and natural demeanor of the girl next door.  Her simple style takes her from city cool to beachside casual in simple classic pieces.  Her basic white tee-shirt paired with a fringed denim is edgy, sexy, and sweet all at the same time.  Always feminine but the rolled up shirt sleeves coupled with layered necklaces take the look into new territories.  Her style is hers and Jane wears the clothes.  Her casual elegance is perfection! The basket bag never gets old.  The five summer styles pictured above show all the basic pieces one needs in their closet:  tee-shirt, white button down, denim of your choice, espadrilles, simple bikini or a simple black one piece , and a woven bag. (Madewell, J.Crew, Net-A-Porter, and Mango are always good places to start your search)
