Perfect Weekend Style: Jane Birkin

Relaxed summer weekends call for comfortable, effortless dressing,
but that's no reason that it can't be chic and sexy as well.

I love Jane Birkin's easy style - she always looks like she's on a romantic vacation. In the movie, Slogan, where she met her longtime love in real-life, Serge Gainsbourg, his character tells hers, "You look like holidays," - this reminds me of Jane in real life.

It's no wonder that the muse behind the iconic Hermes Birkin bag would have a chic, timeless sensibility. Like the bag, her look is very simple but very well put together.

British born Jane's adopted French lifestyle is evident in her style. She was often seen carrying around her trademark wicker basket. There's something quite pastoral and quaint about carrying around a basket.

Simple, well-cut white t-shirt and jeans. Sexy platform wedges. Easy hair. Delicate, feminine jewelry. All the ingredients for the look of 'Jane Birkin, Saturday morning at the market'.
