When inspiration starts to run dry for your warm weather wardrobe, it’s always a good idea to look back at the ultimate style icons of generations past. After all, you know it’s a good outfit if it looks just as good twenty years ago as it does now. So, to save you the hassle of rummaging around the archives finding the best looks, we did it for you. From Pamela Anderson in denim to Twiggy in crochet, discover some of the best retro images to inspire a timeless wardrobe while summer lasts…
1. Pamela Anderson
A white t-shirt, light denim cut off combination is always a winner, especially on Pamela Anderson who always had that California girl look. Maintain this outfit as as the ultimate go-to every summer and to really pay ode to the Baywatch bombshell, style it with some black cowboy boots and the chunky belt to match.
2. Bianca Jagger
For something a little more evening appropriate, take notes from Bianca Jagger spotted in this tailored ensemble complete with a hint of sparkle and a straw hat to give it that vacation flare. We’re envisaging this look alfresco dining in the South of France or just your back garden, whatever suits.
3. Cameron Diaz
The little black dress truly is forever and to make it cool for the summer just like Cameron Diaz, pair it with some chunky boots and simple jewellery. Then, when seasons change, consider this the perfect base outfit for all your layering needs – cue biker jackets and cardigans.
4. Farrah Fawcett
Tennis, anyone? Sporty influences have been everywhere this season and this image of Farrah Fawcett on the court encompasses the trend perfectly. A styling tip we can steal from her is aiming to stick to the same colour palette in both your clothing and your shoes for a matchy-matchy look (see what we did there?).
Each summer, a crisp white blouse makes its comeback. But the most timeless styling of all has been mastered by none other than Sade with the simple additions of gold hoops, red lipstick and classic jeans. This is the look to wear absolutely everywhere this summer and the next…
This Twiggy crochet moment is fulfilling all the festival feels we missed out on this year. Style the boho classic with any other ’60s inspired pieces to master a truly retro aesthetic that never ages. And, if you play some music and close your eyes, it will be just like being at Glastonbury.
7. Princess Diana
Any round-up of retro style inspiration wouldn’t be complete without a Princess Diana mention. Of course, most of the time she was in a quintessentially royal wardrobe but it’s her casual looks we swoon over the most come summer. Luckily, you probably have all the pieces she’s wearing already in your wardrobe…
