Today, I am in my sandy colors, but the shapes and overall silhouette are still very much Frida Kahlo. Frida was a pioneer of what we now regard as the BoHo style, introducing it to the world in the her unique and ground-breaking way. Frida’s style departed from the popular trends of her day and fused the indigenous with the modern in such a distinctive way that her style has been resurrected again and again. Most fashion houses have paid homage to her style at some point and their collections have captured varying components of Frida’s spirit.
The neutral colors I am using depart from Frida’s bold colors and accents. It is a quiet version for our northern days of cool weather. Neutrals can cleanse and comfort and provide a respite from the more bright, energetic colors. There are days when you crave that comfort and the neutral color palette lends its soft quietness to this wish.
The ruffle sleeve top is from Seed Heritage in Australia. The skirt I have had for several years and it is made from a fluid jersey material that moves easily with me. The bangles are made from bone and antler. They are vintage and were found on Ruby Lane. The necklace is from Stella & Dot. The earrings I found drastically reduced at Net-a-Porter and are a Kenneth Jay Lane design. I could not believe how well they matched the necklace and the price was so inviting.
