Christy Turlington Burns shows us how to dress like a gentlewoman
The sleek trouser suit, the simple T-shirt, the khaki utility jacket, the stomp-everywhere boots, (or what one of my friends calls shit-kickers); items that are effortlessly chic and infinitely wearable. These images of Christy Turlington Burns for Matchesfashion.com nail Gentlewoman Style, brilliantly. Everything is considered but nothing looks too ‘done’. Wearing menswear-inspired clothes from Giuliva Heritage Collection, Jil Sander and Symonds Pearmain, multi-talented Turlington Burns reminds me how much mileage there is in a pared-down, androgynous wardrobe.
‘I still appreciate fashion, but my style is simple, clean, comfortable, minimalist,’ the founder of the Every Woman Counts organistation tells Matchesfashion.com, ‘I still enjoy dressing up, but these days it’s for really interesting experiences.’
Who doesn’t love an elegant tomboy?
