Few people reach iconic status. And fewer still reach that level with such overwhelming positive accolades. Iris Apfel is both iconic and universally adored, so she is in a category of her own. Instantly recognizable, confident in her unique style and happy to share what she’s learned along her 96 years.
Her newest book, Iris Apfel, Accidental Icon, Musings of a Geriatric Starlet is available on March 6th and I’ve already pre-ordered my copy!
Some of her musings worth noting:
I think athleisure is just ridiculous. It has it’s place if you are at leisure or at the gym, but I think you owe it to your fellow man to look as pleasant as possible.
If you want to lounge around, then don’t go out.
If everyone tries to be as self-respecting and interesting as they can, it would be a better world.
I think style is in your DNA, but it requires work.
I think jewelry is the most transformative of all accessories. In addition to her signature style, it is her positivity that makes her stand out. And, who couldn’t use more of that these days?!
