Suits Like Jagger
Esther shows us how to suit-up (and dress-up) like the one and only Bianca Jagger
Bianca Jagger is a rare bird.
In an age where trends have a faster turnover rate than an IHOP booth on a Sunday, the human rights activist’s style has endured. Speaking her name aloud conjures images of 70s disco spirit; an actual Google search yields photographic proof that she’s the Jagger with moves to watch.
It’s difficult to replicate style as effortless as hers. Bianca Jagger is a woman who moves and dresses with purpose, yet her sequined turbans and wide-lapeled suits never read as “trying too hard.” It takes true confidence to wear a plunging v-neck, and it takes courage to do so without double-sided fashion tape, but it takes real panache to not look like a fidgety willow every time a breeze provokes a nip-slip.
She, my friends, is a fashion icon.
The sad truth is that we don’t have access to Bianca’s stellar collection of white two-pieces and dramatic capes. We don’t have Studio 54, either. But we do have options. In fact, I once wore a leopard Kooples suit-sans-shirt to a birthday party in Bianca’s honor and had my nipple hanging out for two whole minutes. If at first you don’t succeed, right?
So together, let’s try, try to dress like Bianca Jagger again:
Few things say, “I came to party with my pants on!” like a well tailored suit. Go rogue and wear one like this H&M burgundy number with a bare chest. Or, opt for a blouse-y top beneath it. Either way, Bianca would be proud.
Jumpsuits are never a bad idea, save for when you’ve had too much to drink and need to pee. Throw it back to Saturday night on a Monday. Go up, go down, turn it all around.
Slip Into Something Comfortable
We have many women to thank for the proliferation of the undergarment-turned-party dress, Kate Moss chief among them. A slip dress screams, “IDGAF that I have ‘itis! My undercarriage can breathe and I feel real good about that.”
Wear a PussyBow
Haha, she said “pussy.”
Are we over it? Good, because these neck-hugging babies will make you look .2 % more French than you normally do. The choker-cum-scarf appliqué is sophisticated without being stuffy. Tie it tight or let it hang loose at your collarbone, depending on how good the music is.
Finally, always make an entrance.
So what if you don’t have a stallion upon which to ride? You’ve got the outfit, now. That’s what matters.
