Style Icon: Jean Shrimpton

There’s something about the time when Spring is in the air and the weather gets warmer that makes me think it’s time to go 60’s. Shorter hemlines, feminine dresses, and bigger, teased up hair.

Who better to get style inspiration from than the model/actress who became the face of the Swinging Sixties, Jean “The Shrimp” (yup, that was what she was fondly called) Shrimpton.
