What Would Karen Wear?



Sometimes, getting dressed in the mornings (when I do actually get dressed in the morning), I think, "What would Karen wear?" and it totally helps. Karen from Californication, you know. What that basically means is that I wear my boot-cut jeans, a button-up shirt, a bright scarf and aviator sunglasses, plus some jewelry. It works every time. In five seasons, as the quality of the show fluctuates, Karen's style has stayed totally solid, a really well-curated collection of casual '70s-inspired pieces that tell us exactly who her character iscool, calm, collectedin spite of Hank Moody and all his asshattery. 


Like so:



Sources, clockwise: aviators, bellbottoms, belt, button-up, boots, maxi dress, earrings, scarf 

Good stuff, huh? I like to do fashion wish-lists with each new season (see winter and fall), but this summer I'm determined to shop out of my own closet, which is pretty dang stocked. Watch out, closet.
