Style Icon: Edie Sedgwick


A 1965 fashion spread in Life magazine dubbed her "the girl with the black tights," and Edie Sedgwick wore them with everything, from dressy shift dresses to long t-shirts. So with mod styles and black tights so ubiquitous this fall—not to mention an upcoming biopic called "Factory Girl" starring Sienna Miller as Edie—it seems fitting that the socialite/actress/Factory regular should kick off Fabsugar's new Style Icons feature, where we'll spotlight past and present fashion plates and tell you how to get each one's signature look.

With her cropped platinum hair and dark-lined eyes, Edie Sedgwick defined effortless but edgy mod glamour. The key is pairing simple sheath dresses with bold jewelry, solid-color tights, and basic pumps or flats. Here are the five essential elements you need to get the look.
