GET “IT GIRL” EDIE SEDGWICK’S STYLE

edie

Actress/heiress/model/muse…Edie was considered one of the largest style icons during the 1960’s. She was unlike any other and her style didn’t hide it! As the infamous Andy Warhol’s muse, her eccentricities were always open to the public eye and captured by film. Today her style is still dominated with bold statement jewelry and clothing. Edie’s style is distinguished by basic colors paired with eye-popping jewelry. Want to re-create her quintessential mod vibe? It’s all about the leggings, bold tunic tops and flashy earrings.
