style inspiration: brigitte bardot

Brigitte Bardot is famed as a 60's bombshell, but not enough credit is given to her casual attire. An original bohemian trendsetter, she captured the perfect mix between carefree and put-together, which is an obvious ode to the French laissez-faire era she lived in.  It also goes without saying that her hair, which is still so iconic today, was a major aspect of her personal style and was one of her most distinguishing features.  I love that she balanced her coquettish hairstyles, as well as her frequent use of bold lipsticks and winged eyeliner, with more definitively masculine pieces, such as crewneck knitted sweaters and cropped trousers, to create a look that was somewhat disheveled but still incredibly provoking.
