[Loving] Sienna Miller's Classic Style

Sienna Miller in Breton Tee (buy here from Petit Bateau)

Sienna Rose Miller was probably one of the most talked about British women of the noughties.  We would be kidding ourselves if we didn't admit that it was dating Jude Law (not once, but twice) that shot her up to meteoric levels of super-stardom, but it probably helps that she looked very pretty doing it.  Blonde tussled hair, simple style, simple wardrobe - all the things I really wish I had, and she definitely inspired the Essentials element to South Molton St Style. She's obviously going to be counted as a bit of a hero when she wears her Breton shirts and Kain grey tees to death, as above and below...

Sienna has two elements to her look - boho and classic. I'm not really into the whole boho-chic thing, but I do like the pretty florals and summer dresses she wears (when she and Savannah ran twenty8twelve I loved their whole collections). You can still find some of the stuff they were involved in at discount stores, the OutNet have some good pieces here.


For the purpose of this post, I'm going to stuck to Sienna's capsule-look.  She is brilliant at mixing looks together, such as soft and sharp tailoring, or leather and lace/florals - but essentially her look is cool, calm and seemingly effortless - with lots of Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Seven Jeans with those infamous Chloe Susanna Boots thrown in (have a read of my post on them, or do the sensible thing and buy the Office versions here for £55).  Her Rayban Wayfarers are never far from her side either...


What I really like about Sienna is that she is not afraid to wear the same thing twice, particularly with shoes. As above with the red Chloe boots, she's worn her Russell and Bromley ankle boots to death over the years. At £295 so she should... But if you base how many times she wears something on a price per wear theme, she does actually do her expensive clothes some serious justice...
To get her look, you're going to need to get to know some French labels like Maje, Sandro and Zadig and Voltaire who all do leather and edge incredibly well.  Mix that up with staple basics from brands like Zara, Jaegar Boutique, Whistles and also (girl after my own heart) make sure you buy yourself that Breton shirt from Petit Bateau! She loves hats too - have a look at my post from last week or where to buy the best ones, and I've made an additional find from Miss Selfridge for £25 here.

While I agree she has style, for me an icon would have a bit more personality and kick (like January Jones/Leigh Lezark.)
