Brett Ashley; The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway
Brett was damned good-looking. She wore a slipover jersey sweater and a tweed skirt, and her hair was brushed back like a boy's. She started all that. She was built with curves like the hull of a racing yacht, and you missed none of it with that wool jersey.

Who wouldn't want to look like Brett Ashley? I mean, Ava Gardner played her in the movie. Case closed. Plus, she sported the kind of classic clothes that are just as appropriate to wear now as they were almost a century ago. Even if you don't have "curves like the hull of a racing yacht," you'll do just fine.

Sweater; Isabel Marant Base Sweater
Skirt; SEA plaid skirt, $
