STYLE INSPIRATION: JANIS JOPLIN

janis_21

For style that will surely take a little piece of your heart, Janis rocked it. Her signature, free-spirited colors and textures fell into the groove of her soulful vocals with that unmistakable, gravel-voiced overtone. From fringe to ditsy floral, who would have guessed her out-there 60’s style would be so in this spring?  Her bohemian attitude is translated into gauzy cottons, statement-sized beads, leather, tie-dyes, fringed details, and feathers that will flock the runways and rock even pricey New York boutiques this season. It’s the unique mash up of lengths, textures and earthy tones that set the tone for the creative, expressive looks we’ll see this spring. Check out style Janis would have jumped all over on Swell. Get it While You Can.
