Throughout history, certain women have made their mark in fashion and will forever stand out as style icons. While times and trends change, we still see influences from these lovely ladies in today’s latest styles — handbags included! Let’s take a look at some of our hottest bags, inspired by some of our favorite style icons.
Audrey’s style brings to mind little black dresses, ballet flats, and petal pushers. As far as handbags go, we envision her carrying something like the Caroline Shoulder Bag with a classic structured shape. Can’t you just see this bag accessorized with black oversized sunglasses and a perfectly styled chignon?
A film actress and Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly was a darling with talent! Often accessorizing with details like florals, pearls, and lace, it’s easy to describe her style as feminine. This Lauren Ladylike Satchel would be the perfect accompaniment to her swing skirts and white gloves. We love how the gold buckle detail adds a touch of vintage sophistication!
Beach bunny Brigitte Bardot is know for a number of things –– acting, singing, modeling, and even animal welfare activism –– but she’s most widely recognized as a style and beauty icon. Frequently photographed in beachwear (with her famously teased tresses and winged eyeliner), Brigitte’s street style was playfully edgy. We think this Isabelle Rhinestone Stud Satchel would be an ideal bag for the lovely Miss Bardot!
Probably the most well-known of all the style icons, Marilyn Monroe was a beauty that continues to inspire women to be themselves and enjoy life as it comes. Whether on the silver screen or making public appearances, her flirty style always made a lasting impression. We can totally see the Blonde Bombshell carrying the Isabella Sequin Clutch along with her form-fitting dresses, can’t you?
“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Founder of an iconic fashion house, Coco leaves behind her words of stylish wisdom and plenty of swoon-worthy clothing and accessories forever linked with her name. Of course, we think she would have loved our Paige Quilted Shoulder Bag with its quilted exterior and practical size that’s suited perfectly for her modest-yet-trendy style.
When you think of Elizabeth Taylor, it’s hard not to think about diamonds! Actress, designer, and entrepreneur, she lived a life of glitz and excitement. While her style staples included neck scarves, empire waist skirts, and statement necklaces, we think she would have just loved this Arielle Faux Fur & Sequin Clutch!
