HEY EVERYONE! THIS IS AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY OUR VERY OWN EMPLOYEE, CHELSEA LYNN HUBBARD. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY AND THANK YOU FOR READING 🙂
As tides turn, sweeping seasonal styles back out to sea, an island of timeless beauty and grace remains untouched by the tumultuous waves of change. Elegant island natives, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn can show us how to keep afloat and stay in fashion for summers to come.
Elizabeth Taylor's tasteful scoop-neck dress shows off sun-kissed shoulders while captivating the imagination. The thin horizontal stripes are crisp with a subtle nautical vibe. The white tie belt accentuates her waist, adding visual interest while setting off her va-va-voom figure. A dark silky scarf, knots behind her head and flows down her neck, a makeshift headband that negates a need for all but the simplest of jewelry. With her classic color palette and clean silhouettes, film goddess, Elizabeth Taylor, proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks.
As a princes and movie star, Grace Kelly is an obvious fashion icon. She makes down to earth elegance look effortless. A fitted men’s style button down shirt with cuffed sleeves and collar open at the neck is neatly belted at the waist and perfectly paired with capris, though tailored white or khaki shorts would fit royally as well. A simple bracelet or ring is all you need to accessorize this look, which is topped off with a summertime staple of style and comfort, espadrilles, rope and rubber soled shoes, with a colorful fabric upper.
Audrey Hepburn tops decades of best-dressed lists. Her style is mysteriously sophisticated yet uncomplicated and easy to emulate, with a few basic principles in mind. First, let the clothes work for you. Shapes should be flattering to your specific figure. Colors and patterns should never speak louder than you do. As the Greek aphorism advises, “Know thyself”. Audrey maximized her self-awareness to achieve a minimalist signature style. Her Roman Holiday ensemble is an ideal summer vacation choice that can go from day to night: a pleated skirt, belted at the waist for definition, a fresh collared white shirt with short sleeves rolled up and ready for adventure, delicate, strappy black sandals (think gladiator meets ballerina) and a short silk scarf knotted loosely at the neck. Casual, comfortable, classic…perfection.
