Whistles muse: Meryl Streep


Since a longhaired Meryl Streep appeared in Woody Allen’s iconic 1979 picture Manhattan, her sophisticated and timeless style has been etched in our minds. Following Streep’s most recent role as witty matriarch Violet in August: Osage Country five decades on, we take a look at the enduring style of this actress.

Early roles in films such as Kramer vs Kramer, Manhattan and The Deer Hunter crystallized Streep’s place as a poster girl for quintessential 1970s style. Streep championed a modern, arty take on femininity via smart belted trench coats, classical shirting and utilitarian shirtdresses.

Channel Streep’s yesteryear style with a classic blouse tucked into a midi length skirt and complete with a belted coat - light enough to take you from the tail end of winter into spring effortlessly.
