7 Days of Style: An Icon for Every Day of the Week

Sometimes life gets pretty hectic and, with the wheels of the fashion train moving as rapidly and relentless as they do, it can be difficult to stay on top of your style. While trends come and go, every once in a while there’ll be a lovely lady with a sense of style sufficient to earn her ‘icon’ status. These timeless beauties and effortless instigators of cool are great, shining beacons for the women without the time to conduct the proper style research. Follow them and they will guide you – week in, week out.

MONDAY: Lana Del Rey

MONDAY: Lana Del Rey MONDAY: Lana Del Rey

 

Lana’s sense of style is utterly impeccable, and we see no reason not to start the week on a high. Americana’s what you should be shooting for. If you’re going for casualwear, a tank and denims will serve you well. Heading to the beach? Think ‘classic glamour’ all the way and get your hands on a retro 50s two-piece. Fancy dinner? Let your luscious locks do the talking and opt for a cutesy vintage dress à la Jessica Rabbit. Easy as pie and just as sweet – guaranteed to beat the Monday blues.

TUESDAY: Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn

The lovely Audrey Hepburn is still worshipped today as the First Lady of style. Through a combination of effortless class, girl-next-door charm and that indescribable glow of hers, Audrey stole the heart of every man and the crippling envy of every woman – so as far as style icons so, we’re declaring her a failsafe.

Your priority is to be adorable and demure in that irresistible way. This may sound like a big ask, but you can’t go wrong with a clean white shirt and some cotton shorts. Fix your hair into a tidy up-do and let them see that pretty face of yours. Remember to smile.

WEDNESDAY: Bjork

Bjork

Now we’ve reached the mid-week hump, you’re going to want to spice things up a little. Style revolutionary and raw eccentric Björk Guðmundsdóttir (that’s Björk to you) is an unpolished diamond, an effortless innovator of style and a woman who has more than earned her status. The only rule is there are no rules. Try a bodycon with some sneakers, a tank top with space pants, all-over face paint – anything goes. Just make sure that whatever you do, you do it with the confidence and obstinacy of the lady herself.

THURSDAY: Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani

Enter the Queen of Cool. Gwen is a woman with such aggressive natural coolness that her style is instantly identifiable in spite of its utter eclecticism. Some days she’s a Harajuku goddess, some days a technicolour pirate, others a hip hop legend, demonstrating that the formula for style is simply to run unyieldingly into the abyss without a second thought. If you’re comfortable with it, everyone else is too. So next Thursday, take a leaf out of Gwen Stefani’s book and get creative. And work on that eyebrow because therein lies the unquestionable cool.

FRIDAY: Joan Jett

Joan Jett

It’s Friday which means the weekend’s on the horizon. The irresistibly anarchic Joan Jett is today’s style icon which, of course, means it’s time for some filthy rock n’ roll and an inordinate amount of leather. If this is the end of your working week, this is the ideal opportunity to get in touch with your inner insurgent and engage in a little light rebellion. Think monochromatic band tees, tight jeans and your scruffiest leather jacket – and throw your fighting boots on. Joan has been a prominent punk figure for decades, so channel her vibrant, impulsive energy and take some risks with style today.

SATURDAY: Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks

It’s Saturday, so it’s time to get a little silly. The feisty and vivacious Azealia Banks is an innovator, maverick and all-round party girl who should offer you the tools you need to do a lot of questionable things in unquestionable style. Whether you’re thinking catsuits, mermaid extensions or Minnie Mouse jumpers, just make sure it’s gloriously obnoxious and cheeky and you’re good to go. Azealia’s wardrobe staples should be worn with attitude as standard, so get your weekend face on and make a mess.

SUNDAY: Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

What better way to end any week than with the reigning style icon of all time? Dreamboat Marilyn Monroe has influenced and astounded girls across the world for generations and continues to be a beacon of stylespiration for all you lovely ladies with a taste for good old-fashioned glamour. The Monroe is a difficult balance but, once cracked, guarantees the hearts of all you encounter. Marilyn-inspired casualwear should include a pastel turtleneck and cropped jeans, while a cheeky sweetheart dress will serve you well on more formal occasions. Thick lashes, kiss-me-quick lips and some loose curls should take care of the rest. Style doesn’t take a day off, and neither should you – let Marilyn be your guide.

Stay cool.
