FLAUNT IT LIKE FARRAH
Someone must be leaving the water on because we’ve been seeing a lot of Fawcett lately. As a 70’s sex symbol, famous for her feathered hair, playful style and notorious red swimsuit, Farrah Fawcett made track jackets and flared jeans sexy decades before the explosion of the velour track suit. The coming season brings a revival of her signature flares, sporty sweaters and the sexed-up one piece swimsuits. Complete with feathered hair and all; be prepared to see Fawcett’s style flooding the streets in the coming months.
Who says a one-piece can’t be sexy? Fawcett rocked the famous red swim suit and sold an unrivaled 12 million copies of the famous pose. Keep your eyes open for modern versions of this classic that include plunging necklines, sassy cutt-outs and monokini styles.

Traveling for the holidays? Then you better be doing it with style—and contrary to popular belief this isn’t hard to accomplish while keeping comfort in mind. Reese Witherspoon is no stranger to traveling, being an international movie star and all.

Think Honey Rider’s (Ursula Andress) iconic swimsuit, or Pussy Galore’s (Honor Blackman) curve-hugging sweater dresses adorned with powerful menswear accents. Such a look was once again seamlessly executed in the recent James Bond: Quantum of Solace. The spicy new leading lady, Olga Kurylenko, manages to dress in pieces that match the savvy nature of a Bond girl. With flowy, curvaceous gowns and youthful but rich separates, the new Bond girl is a perfect compliment to Daniel Craig’s (the latest actor to play Bond) high class suits.
