One of my favorite style icons from the late 60’s is the ultimate rock star Jimi Hendrix. A true free spirit, he crafted & styled his own unique look filled with billowy shirts, eclectic prints & velvet pants. His outfits exploded with colors & patterns that expressed timeless style and gave us a window into his true essence. His look was part psychedelic, part luxury & part thrift shop style & adding with his electric guitar…he was the ultimate rock star. His music, stage performances and costumes were truly….an Experience.
I love how he mixed rich jewel tone colors like purple with pink & turquoise, copper with brown & gold as well as cool fabric combinations of velvet with silk & satin with brocade. His outfits were stunning, original & unique….
