Daily Style Icon: Elle MacPherson

How could you pay homage to the 4th of July weekend without paying homage to the swimsuit? Even further, how could you pay homage to the swimsuit without paying proper dues to one of the most legendary swimsuit models in history. Nicknamed “The Body,” Elle MacPherson’s leggy Australian physique sold millions of magazines and launched workout crazes everywhere trying to copy her look.

A style icon for her eclectic, bohemian chic, her personal style is one of my personal go-to favorites when it comes to using accessories to make even the most basic tee and jeans look entirely too glam for words. Now the designer of amazing underthings, Elle MacPherson Intimates, she’s still a champion for women everywhere working what you’ve got with effortless style.

Bohemian chic is a great mixture of high and low, so I’m paying homage to her look today with this Forever 21 Retro Floral Chiffon Top ($17.80) and my PRVCY Santa Monica Light Jeans ($216). Shoes optional, effortless style is not. By the way, have you entered to win the pair of PRVCY jeans I’m giving away this week? If not, I’d do that sooner than later.

Celebrate your own style independence today by playing with your inner bohemian beauty, if not your inner swimsuit model. After all, every woman has her own “body” and heads will turn when you start working the one you’ve got.
