Even if you don’t know her name, you probably know her face, or at least recognize her trademark dark rimmed glasses. Fashion icon Iris Apfel possesses an undeniable idiosyncratic sense of style we’ve all been coveting.
The true inventor of the “arm party” was recently the subject of a new documentary by filmmaker, Albert Maysles. Now, 93, the style maven, interior designer and successful businesswoman is clearly more relevant than ever.
It wasn’t until much later in life that she gained widespread notoriety, but her unique style has always been an unwavering part of her identity. Apfel’s style prowess even landed her a starring role opposite model, Karlie Kloss in Kate Spade’s spring 2015 campaign, and now everyone wants to get her look.
We've rounded up 10 pieces that will help you imitate Iris' eccentric style in the gallery below. Hint: It involves an unapologetic use of bold costume jewelry, bright pops of colour and pattern and a few trips to the flea market.
