Style Icon: Katharine Hepburn

When you think timeless style who is the first person that comes to mind? For us, one of the first names is Katharine Hepburn. Her innovative, timeless style has been an inspiration to generations of women. As WWII took men to war, in their absence women began to take on men's jobs (think Rosie the Riveter) and their wardrobes. Pants suits, blazers, tailored blouses, and brogues began to be worn by women everywhere. Making this look not only utilitarian, but also fashionable, was Katharine Hepburn. Wearing these pieces effortlessly, Hepburn blazed a trend setting trail that has never gone cold; this timeless look has been carried on by contemporary icons like Alexa Chung who is known for incorporating “boyfriend” styled elements in her attire. Mixed, matched, or worn individually, the key pieces of a menswear wardrobe should be staples of every fashionable woman's wardrobe.
