Style muse – Grace Kelly

We all need a little inspiration sometimes. Whenever I need to feel beautiful and choose an outfit to exude femininity, I look to the eternal style icon – Grace Kelly.

Grace Kelly epitomized glamour, grace, elegance, and timeless beauty. Whether it was on screen in  movies like ‘To catch a thief’ and ‘Rear window’ or off screen on red carpets and everyday style, her look was always impactful. Hermes has named one of their most recognizable and timeless bag after her – The Kelly. Her style was attainable and universally flattering. She was often seen in dresses that had a fitted bodice and a full skirt, a silhouette known as the ‘New Look’ made famous by Christian Dior. Scroll to see some of my favorite outfits.

To channel Grace Kelly, stick to classic pieces such as circle skirts, blouses with feminine details, and lots of dresses. Accessorize simple separates with pearls, colorful scarves, kitten heels, and a Kelly-esque bag (like this Zac Posen). Brownie points for sleek hair. Here’s a mood board for some more inspiration on how to update this classic look and adapt it to your lifestyle.
