Jane Birkin's fashion never ceases to inspire, and she even looks stylish wearing almost nothing at all. One of my favorite photographs of the beautiful Brit features her à la piscine, in only a floppy straw hat and a crimson beach towel. In Godard's film Le Mépris, Brigitte Bardot sports a similar "look."
By swapping a towel with a maxi dress and pairing it with nude accessories to mimick bareness the look can easily be translated into an actual outfit. Yes, it's pretty summery, but the forecasted 80 degree weather in LA this week seems reason enough to test it out!
