two years ago, i started my classic style series on opens in a new window Instagram to highlight just how versatile and timeless classic style truly is. it’s a fun series to work on. typically, i have the wardrobe staples on hand to recreate outfits from the women who rock classic style: Victoria Beckham, Reese Witherspoon, Katie Holmes, Ines de la Fressange, Amal Clooney, and the Duchess of Cambridge, to name but a few. but every once in a while, i add classic staples to my wardrobe. today’s outfit was no exception. the opens in a new window black cashmere turtleneck was on hand, and i did have a pair of black denim folded neatly on my shelf. but in early December, i wore a pair of opens in a new windowwax-coated jeans from opens in a new windowLiverpool Los Angeles and fell in love with the fit. opens in a new windowNordstrom carried opens in a new windowblack wax-coated jeans, so in my cart, they went. and this opens in a new window reversible red puffer jacket is so affordable (and on sale) that i couldn’t resist. red is such a vibrant color to wear on a dark and dreary day. it pairs beautifully with black and so on-trend this season. opens in a new windowChelsea boots are a true classic. love a suede version. sunglasses ( opens in a new windowsimilar here) and baseball cap ( opens in a new windowsimilar here) add a hint of fun. hey, if it was good enough for Princess Diana to wear, who am i to argue?

how to wear classic style, Princess Diana

who didn’t adore Princess Diana? from her years as a Sloan Ranger to iconic fashionista, there are so many drool-worthy outfits to emulate. personally, i loved how Diana rocked classic casual style. in the 1980s, it was quite a-typical for a Royal to don blue jeans and a simple white shirt. but Diana did just that and more. the peoples’ Princess was a trendsetter through and through. think you can’t wear three colors together? or a puffer jacket is stodgy? what about a baseball cap? it can be done. and it can look chic. so let’s take a lesson on how to wear classic style, Princess Diana.

    I agree with looking to style icons you admire and adapting their look to yourself. I wonder about your thoughts regarding my personal favorite, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. She wasn’t in the public eye for very long and it’s been over 20 years since her death, but her outfits look just as fresh today as they did back in the 90s. For me, she truly epitomized the concept of ‘effortless chic’: sleek lines, minimal accessories.
