STYLE ICON: KATE MOSS

What’s a fashion blog without an honorary blog post dedicated to a lady by the name of Moss, Kate Moss?

She was discovered 22 years ago at the age of 14 and has been in the spotlight ever since.  If being relevant for over twenty years doesn’t make you an icon, then I don’t know what does. Ads, pictorials, covers, blogs, stores — you name it, her name is in lights everywhere.  She’s only 5’7, which is not even “model height” yet she is without a doubt the most household of names from the modeling world. She has transcended being a “model” more than any other without being a Victoria’s secret commercial-type (Tyra, Heidi).

Over the years, she has created her own sense of rule-breaking fashion.  Yet it seems to stay so relevant due to a few rules she always sticks to.

1)      Always mix and match textures and layers.

2)      Care about clothing over fashion.

3)      Keep prints timeless instead of trendy.

4)      Be authentic.

5)      Don’t care about the dress code.

6)      Make every ensemble look effortless.

In other words, forget to brush your hair for the big event, wear your dress loosely belted instead of styled up, load on as much or as little make-up as your mood deems fit, cut off your jeans and don’t worry about the ragged hems, buy vintage.  Are you listening, Victoria Beckham?

I can only imagine showing up to an event and feeling like her idea of the dress code was so much more right than everyone else’s.
