Polka dots and bow accessories also featured heavily in Marilyn’s outifts; although the stars own private life was troubled, in the public eye she maintained an air of innocence. For daywear, Marilyn loved pencil skirts to compliment and accentuate her curves, which she nearly always teamed with a t-shirt or sweater of the same colour. She also liked to wrap up in polo neck sweaters, which hugged her body while keeping out the cold.

For the finishing touch, Marilyn always applied a bold red lipstick and pencilled in a beauty spot, something that has been imitated world over. Get the Marilyn look this season.Image
