Iconic Influence: Bonnie and Clyde

 There are classics. And there are classics that maintain relevance long after their peak fame has hit. One of those films is Bonnie and Clyde. Without a doubt, Faye Dunaway’s iconic look heavily influenced fashion trends throughout the late 1960’s, and while almost 50 years have passed, her infamous character’s style still holds strong in a contemporary setting.   

 Hair and makeup aside, key pieces I love to incorporate into my casual dress include the triangle scarf, a classic beret and an overall essence of badass elegance. Theadora Van Runkle (the costume designer for the film), did an outstanding job at bringing both an edginess and ease to the whole look and truthfully, what more could we ask for when presenting our own style?
