Rue and Style Icons
Rue is all we are talking about here at HQ and it’s got a lot of us thinking about our own versions and how we can make them personalized to our style.
As you have seen, Rue and her interesting style lines are inspired by vintage garments we’ve seen in the past. We thought it would be fun to gather images of style icons from the 50s and 60s paired along with fabric options you could choose to make for your own Rue.
To start us off, we have Jackie O. She is obviously the queen of class. While doing research I realized she wore a lot more color than I thought, and that really got me excited! She always had fun with her style, but kept it clean and professional always.
1.) Mini Paisley in Silk/Cotton from The Fabric Store
2.) Yellow 1-inch Gingham
3.) Southern Classic Linen Blend in Black
4.) Les Fleurs Lawn Flamingoes Ivory by Cotton+Steel (note: you may not think Jackie O at first, but I really think the Jackie O today would totally wear a flamingo print dress.)
5.) Libery of London’s Torrington Crepe de Chine from The Fabric Store
Brigette Bardot exudes so much great energy that she just makes you want to dance and smile all day long. I really love how much color she wore. She also knew how to rock a flirty silhouette like no one else.
Grace Kelly is a princess. Literally. Her style was always so luxurious and beautiful. Sewing a Rue up in lace and silk would be on another level gorgeous.
I’m selfishly saving the best (or in other words, my favorite) for last. Elizabeth Taylor’s style is everything I want to be and more. She could rock so many different looks and make it her own, it’s super inspiring!
Are you planning on making Rue? If so, what inspiration are you using?
