Marilyn Monroe is an iconic sex symbol. When you think of her, you probably think of her in her white dress from The Seven Year Itch, trying to hold it down over a subway grate. It’s a playful and sexy photo. We wanted to give the dress a modern update for this throwback Thursday.
To bring this dress into this decade we decided to actually go for a two piece look. It’s fresh and more convenient for your wardrobe to have separates. For this outfit, the most important piece is the skirt. It needs to have movement. Choose one that hits around the knee or above it and easily flows. The next piece is the top. Marilyn had a deep v in her dress. We chose a crop top that has a less severe neckline. Since the top exposes a little skin around the waist, it’s better to balance out the look with a more reserved neckline.
We accessorized the look with classic white strapped high heels and a white rhinestone satin clutch. The purse gives the outfit a little bling factor.
When creating your Marilyn Monroe inspired look, feel free to play with it. Keeping a look all white can be boring, but switching up textures can be visually interesting. Another option is to get the feel of the pieces, but switch up the colors. For example, add a pop of color like a red top or add colorful accessories.
