Hey girls! Today, I wanted to do a little throwback and revisit some of the most iconic women in style. To them, we owe it all! I personally believe their impact on the fashion world is still felt today and we would not be influenced by certain pieces if it were not for them! Many of the styles we enjoyed today were first introduced and even endorsed by them. Below you'll find four powerful, confident, and beautiful women who fashionistas everywhere admire. For a complete list, click here to view an article published on Time. 

Coco Chanel

The Coco Chanel. Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel was a french designer who founded the Chanel brand name we have all grown to love today. This woman also brought us the little black dress, Chanel No. 5, and iconic hats and simple textiles. Coco Chanel definitley made a lasting impact on the fashion world with her emphasis on making women's clothing more comfortable. Definitely owe some of our favorite staple items to her!

Marilyn Monroe gave us more than just endless style possibilities. She gave women all around the world the gift of empowerment and confidence.

Although Coco Chanel first introduced the idea of the little black dress, Audrey Hepburn showed women everywhere that this style trend could be continued on into the new era--and eras to come for that matter. Based on her iconic outfit from Breakfast at Tiffany's, the little black dress continued its sleek and sophisticated trend. 
Audrey Hepburn also made the boatneck style popular as well as the classic capri and ballet flat! Read her complete biography here!

Pieces Inspired By These Women 

Of course this blog post wouldn't be complete without showing you just how influential these women were on the fashion world. Below, we picked several pieces that we feel like embody the legacy they could have only imagined to leave behind. 

Black Scalloped Dress

I am sure you could have guessed this one. Obviously, this blog post would NOT be complete without featuring a LBD. Made famous by Coco, every style icon and every average girl after her consider this to be a staple item. Black never goes out of style and when something so sleek and timeless has been around this long, I can guarantee you, it won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Our classic and elegantly flirty 'Sabella Scallop Dress' is one these beautiful ladies would be proud of. 

Black and White Embroidered Shirt Dress

First Lady stamp of approval? I think so! This black and white shirt dress is definitely one we could see Jackie O sporting around on vacation or wearing while she spent time with her family. She was known for the classic sleeveless button down and shorts look so we have no doubt she would've been crazy over this number as well. However, we are positive each of the ladies would have loved this classic black and white combo. Our elegant and casual 'Loretta Shirt Dress' is a perfect tribute to these style icons. 

Peach Colored Shift Dress

Yet another beauty Jackie O. would be impressed with. She definitely made the shift dress iconic so we have absolutely no doubt this peach colored number would be right up her alley. This silhouette was traditional to her time period and it is still one of the most popular go-to's for ladies of all shapes and sizes today! Our sassy peach colored 'Gabrielle Short Sleeve Shift Dress' would look simply darling with a pair of our  fun and flirty sunglasses to top it all off. This one is definitely Jackie Kennedy approved of! 

White Lace Floral Dress

This is a modern day, casual twist on Marilyn Monroe's iconic swing dress with a plunging v-neck. Whether it is the white silhouette or similar v-neck line we know that this flirty number is one she would have definitely adored. Marilyn was all about being confident in your own skin and enhancing what you've got and there is no better way to do so than with a fit and flare dress, don't you agree? Embrace her iconic style in our innocent white lace dress

White Scalloped Sleeve Tank

Now we are talking Audrey Hepburn style! This structured white tank is definitely reminds us of her. We can just see it now with some capri pants and ballet pants and you will be on your merry way. Audrey would have been seen sporting something very similar for her everyday style and you can channel your inner Hepburn as well in this top sophisticated scallop top that also comes in red and blue

White and Navy Blue Striped Shorts

The last item we chose to feature is one each and everyone of the ladies would be extremely proud of. Again, timeless looks never go out of style and there's something so classy about navy blue and white stripes. Our pleated 'Skipper Shorts' feature a high waist which also add the little extra bit of class. Marilyn was know for her high waisted pieces but here at Page 6, Jackie, Audrey, and Coco would definitely rock this look as well. 

As always, we hope you enjoyed this tribute blog post! Shop any of the items featured above online by clicking here or feel free to give us a call at our warehouse at 803.980.4171.
