How To Channel Your Inner Cary Grant

They say no one is perfect - with the exception of Cary Grant. The handsome hero. The silver screen fox. Cary Grant is the epitome of Hollywood charm and timeless elegance and will forever inspire fashion aficionados with his unimpeachable style that transcends generations. The man truly offered us a masterclass in timeless elegance and sophistication.  While often celebrated for his suave demeanor and tailored suits, there's a myriad of ways we, as women, can channel his iconic look into our personal style. It’s never been about replicating Grant's- or any other figure’s look but rather embracing the principles of his style and adapting them to suit your individuality. If we can’t be with men like CG (because they just don’t make them like that anymore), then we might as well dress like him. Read on to see how you can infuse a touch of Grant’s sophistication into your modern style.

Grant was synonymous with tailored perfection. For the modern woman, this means investing in well-fitted blazers (Katharine, hi) and trousers that hug the body in all the right places. To add a little leading lady energy into your life, embrace structured pieces that accentuate your silhouette while maintaining coziness. Grant did this by frequently donning monochromatic ensembles exuding a cohesive and polished look. So dapper. Adopt this approach by pairing pieces in the same color family. Think a crisp Donna button down paired with bone jeans or a camel trench coat over the perfect namesake Cary sweater. The result? Effortless.   

 While Grant's style was understated, his choice of accessories was always impactful. For women, consider timeless accessories like a quality leather handbag, classic pumps, or delicate pearl or diamond earrings. Experiment with silk scarves and ascots! Also, be sure to get your hands on a 1953 Sunbeam Alpine (google it). Live a little.

Remember, simplicity is key; opt for pieces that elevate your outfit without overpowering it. Overstatements can kill a look which is why Grant was just sooo good at blurring the lines between masculine and feminine fashion. You can easily do this too!  Incorporate menswear-inspired elements such as an oversized Katharine blazer, loafers, or tailored vests into your wardrobe. Balance these pieces with feminine touches like delicate jewelry or a bold lip color, and a bit on some gentleman’s collar for a harmonious blend of styles.
