Style Icon: Jean Shrimpton


British supermodel Jean Shrimpton (a.k.a. "The Shrimp") was emblematic of 1960s swinging London. In fact, she is credited with launching the miniskirt craze, after showing up wearing a short shift dress in Melbourne in 1965.

But unlike the funky mod style of our last featured Style Icon, Edie Sedgwick, Shrimpton tended toward feminine fashions that today look incredibly classic. With her dark eyebrows, fringy bangs, and understated jewelry, she toed the line between Bohemian and sophisticate by mixing hippy prints with tailored pieces. To see the five essential elements you need to get the look,
