Hopefully you are familiar with Edie Sedgwick, Warhol’s muse for many of his short films. She was certainly a style icon in the 60s, and while her life was certainly tragic, she was unconventionally beautiful and has remained in the public’s consciousness ever since with many pop cultural references such as songs, movies, and even poems. Enjoy!
Another look I have never tried, but have plans to experiment with. This is such a iconic 60s look, it would be perfect for either a night out or a costume party. Remember that you can play it down – you don’t have to use black. Experiment with color for a softer look.
