WHAT TO WEAR: NEW YEAR’S EVE

Big events are fun, sure, but finding something to wear can be more of a challenge. New Years Eve is right around the corner and, of course, my focus is finding something to wear.  Naturally, I began my search at Swell.com and ended my search at Swell.com. I thought it would be a bit more difficult to find an occasion dress at a surf shop, but the selection of dresses and accessories was impressive. Once again I found an outfit that stayed true to my surf roots while allowing me to step out of my flip flops and jeans for a special night.

STYLE ICON: BIANCA JAGGER

With plunging necklines, powerful menswear separates, and bold, dramatic style, Bianca Jagger became just as famous for her rockin’ style as her rocker husband.  A studio 54 icon, the Nicaraguan beauty had enough style to outshine husband Mick’s (Rolling Stones Mick Jagger) star status. Bianca is best known for her signature Yves saint Laurent menswear look, long flowing dresses with necklines that would make Heff blush, and statement accessories that epitomizes 70’s elegance and celebrity.  Get ready to relive some of these her 54 headline looks this Spring. Floor-sweeping, silky dresses, snake skin accessories, and some menswear lines are coming back to celebrate the decadence and classic glamour of the 70’s. Here’s a look at some of Bianca Jagger’s iconic looks and a sneak peak into Spring’s slightly modernized takes on some of her signature pieces. 

(Pictured at top) Bianca’s snake skin boots give her otherwise preppy jacket a dose of rock and roll.
