The Essential Wardrobe is all about classic style, elegance and comfort. We create garments that truly bring out the best in you in every situation. But when it comes to iconic style, it's something you'll remember and draw inspiration from.
We've rounded up some famous style icons who have a sense of style to follow.
The 50s black and white screen actress was one of the most famous celebrities and style icons of the era. Her slender frame, gorgeous smile and Bambi eyes captured the hearts of many. One important person was also captivated by her innocent beauty, none other than the French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy. Together, the young fashion expert and Audrey Hepburn created a brand with a feminine, elegant, clean-cut style.
Audrey Hepburn's style was based on primary colours (lots of black and white) and accessories such as large hats, oversized sunglasses and slim-fitting black dresses.
The former first lady became a style icon with her round hats and long white gloves. But Jackie's style was much more than that: For wearing colours and combining them with different tailoring (such as trouser skirts) for an eye-catching look. Her autumn look included a trench coat, headscarf and iconic sunglasses. To create Jackie Kennedy's look, choose bold colours, don't be afraid to 'colour block' and always add a touch of femininity to slightly more masculine, relaxed sets.
The Queen of Hearts was popular not only for her charming personality, but also for her timeless fashion sense. Despite her pixie-style hairstyle, Lady Di always remained very feminine. She is remembered as one of the most rebellious royals in British history. Her youthful, fun-loving style represented just that. Unlike other members of the aristocratic family, she dared to wear short skirts, figure-hugging dresses, off-the-shoulder pieces and a variety of colours.
The supermodel became one of the most successful women in the business in the 90s. Her slim figure and unclassically feminine appearance were her own rebellion against the expectations of the time. Her style knows no boundaries and sends a strong message about Kate's personality that says: I don't care what you think. Kate Moss is also bold in experimenting with textures, patterns and colours. Her inner beauty shines through in the masculine pieces she pairs with casual outfits, but she's also brave enough to wear pieces she's long forgotten.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker is often synonymous with style, fashion and femininity. She has been a fashion ambassador since her role in the TV series Sex and the City, where she played Carrie Bradshaw, a true style icon. Her look is subtle, fun, extremely feminine and playful, but she not only shows the latest fashions, but also exclusive, unusual and retro elements. High heels and trendy bags are key pieces of true SJP style.
No matter which style icon you identify with the most, make sure you always stick to your own personal style!
