Jean Seberg: Style Inspiration

Screen shots of Jean Seberg in Breathless

Jean Seberg is my ultimate style crush, from the cropped hair to her delicate elfin features I consider her to be a true timeless beauty. I am a bit of a film geek and a huge fan of the film Breathless. This new wave masterpiece is still chic, sleek and modern and to me Patricia Franchini is the epitome of cool. When I first visited Paris I had visions of strolling down the Champs-Elysees recreating Patricia selling the New York Herald Tribune. Both the film and the fashion featured in it are timeless and it is easy to recreate Patricia’s look with some budget items on today’s high street.
The main styles sported by Jean Seberg in Breathless are:
v   Vertical stripes often with a slight nautical feel, especially on basic long sleeved tops and dresses.v   Slim- fitted trousers teamed with ballet pumps.v   Peter Pan collars on dresses, which are very fashionable at the moment.v   Block colours, no patterned prints.v   A mac, trilby and oversized sunglasses are essentials.
Here are a few items I’ve found online that I feel are reminiscent of Patricia in Breathless.
