Style Icon: Jean Truscott from "Breathless"


Hello all you lovely people!
It is once again time for one of my Style Icons. And since last time's style icon was from the tv series Breathless and I mentioned that there was another lady in that television series that inspired me, I though I'd share that lady with you today.


Today's style icon is the character Jean Truscott from Breathless, played by the gorgeous Zoe Boyle. Jean is a former nurse, that is settling into life as a housewife to a young gynaecologist surgeon. The series is set in the early 1960's London and Jean is young and hip. She dresses in what at the 60's would have been real modern clothes. She has a flirty and sexy style with tight-fitting dresses and cool coats with awesome silhouettes.



My favourite outfit of Jean's is a black, tight and sexy dress, with dainty gloves and a stunning hat (seen below). She looks a million in that gorgeous outfit, and I seriously want the exact replica of that dress, it's so chic and lovely.


Like I said last time, I wouldn't necessarily recommend Breathless, but if your interested in vintage fashion or costume design then it's a very beautiful and suave series.

Much love,

  2. I'd never heard of this tv show before but wow, Jean's style is flawless! I wouldn't mind seeing it just for the fashion, is it an easy watch?

    1. Isn't it!! She's so gorgeous in her awesome 60's outfits.
      I wouldn't say it is an easy watch... It's quite dramatic. But well worth it for the costume design.
      Much love

    1. Yes!! Me too - they're so awesome!
      It was only on for one series on ITV in the UK, so it didn't become very popular or anything. But it got a fan in me, because I fell in love with the costume design.
      Much love

    1. It's not a very good show, but it is a beautiful show. It is visually appealing to me anyway. And yes, Jean is stunning!

  5. Such skilled and stylish 1960s styling. That last ensemble in particular took my breath away as well. Once senses a Breakfast at Tiffany's vibe to it, yet it is its own look for sure as well. So chic, classic and appealing!
