Style Inspiration – Marilyn Monroe

Today’s style inspiration is Marilyn Monroe.  It may seem like a cliche choice, but she wasn’t considered the most beautiful woman in America for no reason!

For public appearances, Marilyn was often in ultra girly dresses with high heels and her signature red lips.  The very epitome of woman.

However, it was Marilyn’s personal style that I really love.  When Marilyn was off duty or allowed to choose her clothing, she often went for men’s dress shirts or sweaters paired with capris or hot pants.  She could take an Oxford shirt and make it look elegant and sexy all at once.
