    Audrey Hepburn is my favorite summer style icon. I love her classic look with a breezy sundress, large hat and big sunglasses. Classic!

    I’d have to say Kate Hudson. I’m not a fan of her current style choices, but she always wore flowy, casual clothes with ease.

    I hope the deadline is June 16! My summer style icon is Jennifer Morrison, actress. I saw a photo shoot of her modelling summer clothes, and it was inspiring. Very colorful and stylish.

    I love Reese Witherspoons style. It is so cool and carefree while still being so stylish. I would love to be able to dress like her.

    Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy all combined 🙂 it’s a great combo

    My mom was my summer style icon…a freshly starched oversized oxfordcloth, sparkly flats, lots of chunky gold jewelry, and a shade of shocking “zinc pink” lipstick, all worn over her bathing suit, was her classic summer style. An enormous straw beach bag, never cleaned out season to season, recently revealed a huge pair of Sarah Coventry sunnies and an ancient tube of Bain du Soleil. Her best summer accessory-her sunny smile!

    Jackie O! No one did New England classic style like her. Those big sunglasses and scarfs are still a go-to for all stylish summer ladies.

    I would have to say that my summer style icon is the “Queen of prep” herself Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau aka Lilly Pulitzer. She is a fashion icon who incorporated not only the colors we associate with summer but imagery into her clothing as well! Her clothing was also worn by the trendsetter Jackie Kennedy another woman I consider to be a summer style icon!

    My summer style icon is Grace Kelly. She stuck to colors that look good on her, and classic pieces. For instance in her films, the costume designer was really great at picking out elegant dresses and bright hues for her to wear which looked great against her skin tone and blond hair. So yes, my summer favorite is Grave Kelly because she wore bright colors gracefully and elegantly in her movies.

    My summer icon is the classic southern lady. Being a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl raised in the south) summer is my jam. The Lilly Pulitzer color explosion in a classic sheath dress, a neck full of pearls, and diamond stud earrings. Followed by a pair of matching classic yellow box flip flops. Top it off with a straw beach hat and tote and of course the perfect coral lipstick!

    My favorite summer style icon is my Nana. My favorite photo of her was from the summer of 1943, looking like “Rosie the Riveter” wearing a smile highlighted by bright lipstick, “peddle pusher” pants, saddle shoes, and a bandana on her head building airplanes. She demonstrated her natural beauty even in simple clothes. I grew up hearing her say “a smile is the most beautiful thing a lady can wear.”

    Any mother sporting a two piece and stretch marks… Bravery, sheer bravery. Not a famous person but they’re literally someone’s whole world.

    Mother Nature is my summer style icon. I am inspired daily by the beautiful colors of nature; the rich orange, pinks and purples of a summer sunset to the cool blues and greens of the crystal waters. I find inspiration in the soft quiet breezes through tall grasses as well as the rain-soaking summer storms!

    My summer-style icon is Reese Witherspoon. She always wears classic, easy clothes with a decidedly southern influence.

    My summer style icon is Elizabeth Taylor. I am inspired by her beauty on and off-screen. Taylor always seemed chic and cool while on location in tropical settings, wearing kaftans, silk head scarves, and Grecian-inspired glamour. These are styles that I enjoy while basking in summer activities and relaxation.

    Mary McDonald, Designer extraordinaire is my Summer Style inspiration as she is all year round. Her sophisticated and exotic style is fun to emulate. She is all about intriguing accessories in her personal style and her interior creations. She would definitely approve of these fun Summer accessories, especially the beautiful necklace. She loves oversize pieces that make a statement. Her personal style is as elegant as the decor she designs.

    My style icon would be Jackie Kennedy, always a classic, no fuss approach to style, never goes out of style. And she reminds me of my mother.

    Reese Witherspoon is definitely my summer style icon. Her southern charm mixed with bright playful colors represent a summer of fun. Whether she is wearing a skirt, dress or shorts, her style can make a day full of hard work or relaxation appealing. The bright patterns that her clothing line Draper James offers can make anyone want to drive to the nearest seaside town and spend a month or two. Reese also has such a colorful personality that can leave anyone feeling happy and fun. She is the epitome of summer coastal style.

    Being a quintessential New England girl I always found Cindy Crawfords summer style
    impeccable. This timeless beauty is most seen in white jeans and a chambray shirt or a white button down. Often looking like she stepped out of Camelot in oversized dark glasses and a scarf in her hair. On the beach she keeps it classy in a sleek black one piece bathing suit. Such a classic look can go anywhere from Nantucket to Palm Beach and never look out of place. With all her fame and success she never sold out on dressing true to her style!

    I know this is hard to believe, but I would have to say my summer style icon is my DOG, Dexter half Bassett hound and half border collie. He always looks effortlessly cool with his handsome peacock feathered or neon orange collar against his black and white fur in the excruciating heat of Charleston, SC. He teaches me to enjoy each day, put on a flowy summer dress, sandals and appreciate the salty textured waves my hair gets from the beach! So roll down your windows , turn the music up and enjoy the summer with your head out the window like Dexter (obviously don’t drive with head out window!).

    Jackie O in Hyannis Port . The ultimate trendsetter without even trying . Her classic East Coast vibe translates from the 50-60’s to being completely current today .

    Not to mention her 70’s in Capri with her sister . (Another Stylish woman ) always easy never forced .

    Why, Jackie O, of course! Her timeless, iconic fashion sense will never go out of style. Additionally, her accessories were always on point. I only hope to be as classy and graceful as Jackie O.

    My style icon is my daughter. She has such a keen sense of style and adopts both new and “vintage” pieces that come together to look so classic. When this issue came out, she immediately texted me with the “I wants”!

    OMG… Hands down Grace Kelly in Room with A View ! A Hot summer night and she looked dead drop gorgeous no matter how hot it was ! Her outfits in that movie were so beautiful and sexy. she had it all. Very inspiring.

    My summer style icon is Margot Robbie. Forget that she is only 26. Forget that she nearly stole the movie The Wolf On Wall Street from Leonardio DiCaprio. Forget that Margot Robbie’s classic glamour is reminiscent of Grace Kelly or Lana Turner. She’s a true beach beauty. During her photoshoot at New York’s Catalina Beach Club she looked wholesome and healthy and playful on the beach photographed with those adorable puppies by renowned photographer Miguel Reveriego for Vanity Fair. Whether wearing a classic black and white one piece, standing on the dock in a blue polka-dot summer dress, or with the ocean breeze blowing through her air, she has style, she’s a natural beauty. She’d look great in The Blush Label scarf. And she surfs and snowboards!

    My style icon is my mom. She always found affordable ways to be trendy but classic. If I made her jewelry she wore it. Her traditional style taught me how to experiment with fashion but still stay true to my viewpoint.

    Cameron Diaz as she radiates good health and is so natural and unpretentious. Her style is minimal fuss yet she always looks terrific.
