When we think of Marilyn Monroe we instantly think back to her infamous white halter dress. However, how do you really channel Marilyn the girl and not the icon? Here are the key pieces to add a bit of Marilyn in your daily style.
1) Chanel No. 5 Perfume.
Marilyn is famously known for saying in an interview, that she only wears chanel No. 5 to bed.
2) Coral Red Lipstick and Nails:
Nobody wore these sexy lips quite like Marilyn. Never leaving the house without the coordinating duo, she was the symbol of "Sexy".
3) Classic Black Louboutin Pump:
Although Marilyn did not techinically wear Louboutin, I am certain if she were alive now, she would. The sexy red sole is so Marilyn and accents her classic style perfectly.
4)Cropped Black top:
Marilyn's style is actually quite on current Trend. She often sported a 3/4 sleeve cropped black top. Although most people remember her as the vixen who always showed her decote, she was much more reserved in her private style.
5)Cropped White Pants:
Also another current trend, I picked a Prabal Gurung to celebrate her love for a good cropped pant. The style is modern while still classic.
6) Cat Eye Black Sunnies:
Nothing says Marilyn quite like these fabulous sunglasses from Chanel. She was shy by nature and always not too far from hiding behind a pair of these.
7) Bouncy Hair and Lashes:
Lastly, always curl your locks to get that bouncy, flirty Marilyn hair. Finish off with Mascara and eyeliner.
