We'd be hard-pressed to find a fashion girl who isn't constantly influenced by the charming, effortless ways of Jane Birkin. And the style icon's aesthetic is more relevant than ever, given the '70s revival that's been holding court in the fashion world for the past several seasons. The beauty of the English rose's decades of cool, classic outfits is that she always looks comfortable in what she's wearing and has stayed true to her blend of British- and French-girl style over the years.
And as every true trendsetter does, Birkin has her share of signature pieces: ballet flats, flared jeans, off-the-shoulder tops, striped (and white) T-shirts, minidresses, and the ubiquitous basket bag among them. It's any wonder that the most directional celebrities among us would look to Birkin for inspiration, given the decades of outfit ideas that she's given us. Consider the below looks proof positive that Birkin's sartorial influence has stood the test of time. Keep scrolling to see some of our favorites over the past several years, and shop pieces
