Joni Mitchell’s style can be described as “hippie chic.” Heavily inspired by her heyday, Mitchell’s style is a ‘70s daydream. From maxi dresses to wide leg pants, the Both Sides Now singer continues to inspire many modern stylistas. Her style is evergreen, as solidified by her being the face of Saint Laurent in 2015.
An androgynous icon, Patti Smith’s style is as unique as her personality. While she did manage to put a name to her style, the singer-slash-poet-slash artist remains one of a kind, mainly because she purposefully deviated from what everyone was doing. Smith, who had been often seen wearing big jackets and skinny jeans, didn’t stick out like a sore thumb amongst her peers but stood out effortlessly.
