Style Icon: Claire Danes in Romeo + Juliet

The epitome of 90's minimalism and the ethereal aftermath of heroine chic, Claire Danes exhibited a stark contrast beauty amidst the traditional Baz Luhrmann extravagance of 1996's Romeo + Juliet. The look consists of fresh-faced, natural beauty and pin straight hair. This is usually my go to look for spring and summer. Low maintenance yet polished beauty is always in during the warmer months. For this look, think clean line, and fresh, airy, light materials. Opt for this season's neutrals and edge it out with just a pop of neon. Use little make up. You only need the essentials: mascara, blush, sheer lip color. Accessorize sparingly!

This dress is simple and even a bit ethereal. Yet the bow gives it a sticky sweet kick.

Juicy Couture Embroidered Linen Sundress- $188

This is the new incarnation of the standard gold flat. Covet this.
London Pirouette Sole Flat- $165

This lip gloss is amazing. It changes color according to your body heat, aka if your friend buys one you will still be an individual. It's also rather sheer and gives the perfect amount of pigment. Smashbox O-Gloss- $20.
