Linda Ronstadt was just recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and watching the ceremony on television not only made me nostalgic for her music but also for her innocently sexy hippie-chick style, which is actually quite perfect for summer fashion.
The woman was ahead of her time, achieving the perfect balance between sex-kitten feminine and strong, confident woman. She never compromised her beauty so that her talent was taken more seriously, nor did she compromise her talent in order to be more attractive. And she did it all so effortlessly.
So as you plot your hot weather wardrobe, think of channeling Ronstadt. Discover a new fashion inspiration and let this Grammy Award-winning singer guide you through a summer of love and style. Below are a few looks I curated inspired by her. Which will you sport this summer?
