This Spring, take some fashion inspiration from one of style’s eternal goddesess. Grace Kelly, who became Princess Grace of Monaco, had a personal style that was both classy and classic, and has remained a look that continues to inspire and delight fashion fans year after year.
It is a style that always works well for Spring, due to the freshness of the full skirted printed dresses she wore with such aplomb, and the modern addition of her ever present sunglasses. These are looks you can find online, with Vivien of Holloway being one of the best destinations when it comes to finding dresses that have that retro style and print. One dress is even called ‘Grace’, surely in honour of the unforgettable film actress who was so iconic she eve had a Hermes bag named after her.
In terms of glasses, it is up to you whether you opt for the cat eyed retro styles, 1960s bug eyed style that both Grace and Jackie Onassis favoured, or even something ultra modern. Sunglasses experts My Glasses Guru have an enormous section, and I am currently loving the Ted Baker range which definitely has a retro flavour this season, with tortoiseshell frames and tinted lenses. My Glasses Guru is great in that it helps you choose frames that will suit your skin tone and hair colour too – something I had never really thought about, but it a great idea that could help you find your perfect classes.
