Whistles muse: Meryl Streep

10.02.2014

Ever 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 show-stopping speech at the 2017 Golden Globes ceremony, when she collected the esteemed Cecil B DeMille award four 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.
