“You’re considered superficial and silly if you are interested in fashion, but I think you can be substantial and still be interested in frivolity.” – Sofia Coppola
Sofia Coppola has been getting a lot of attention lately as the ‘it’ girl working with H&M by directing a video for their Marni for H&M line. And since we love a woman with both brains and beauty (and a sense of style, of course), we wanted to dedicate an article to Coppola’s style.
We gathered Coppola’s most memorable looks over the years and pulled together her most coveted outfits, so you can recreate her sense of Parisian charm.
The iconic director masters the art of simple pieces, worn together to create the perfect laid-back look. Minimalistic is the name of the game, but so if comfort, shown through chunky, over-sized sweaters, skinny pants, fresh pumps, and little shift dresses. The best part about snagging Coppola’s look? The pieces are timeless and can easily be mixed and matched, acting as staples in any woman’s closet.
Take a peek at our picks to mimic Coppola’s look. From work-appropriate chic to modern weekend wear to a new take on a little black dress, incorporate all this season’s trends by modeling a few staple pieces after Coppola’s looks.
Try this Marni color-block silk blend dress, £182.50, for an interesting take on a little black dress. Add another twist to a basic black pump by opting for these J Jill Ankle Strap Wedges, $159, instead.
