although Alexa Chung may have rubbed this one off on me, Anna Karina is one of my favorite fashion inspirations of all time. she was such an icon of the ‘French New Wave’ scene in every single way possible. one of my, oddly, favorite movies is Une Femme est Une Femme. i say “oddly” because it really is just an odd movie. her style in this film, however, stands out the most than in any other, in my opinion. the look is so incredibly simple, but crazy iconic.
AND HERE’S HOW YOU GET IT
1) what ever you do, you need a red cardigan and you need it now.
2) pair the said, red cardigan with any nice mini skirt with a 60s vibe. go striped, tartan, mod, etc.
3) black ballet flats: literally the most basic of shoes but the best kind of shoe???
here’s my take on an Anna Karina thing
sweater: some thrift boutique
shoes: urban outfitters (so so comfy)
i think it’s such a great and easy look!!
5) ok. signature makeup. a power-cat-eye, topped with some pretty nifty blue eyeshadow.
you can honestly never go wrong with blue eyeshadow. i know it, you know it, Suzy Bishop knew it, too.
oh and a side tip would also be the low maintenance, messy bun/beehive hairstyle she does, which is basically just balling your hair up on top of your head and pinning it. but it can be effortlessly cool and 60s.
so, with just a few quick steps, i think anyone can be ready to embody your inner Karina.
