The retro singer-songwriter can be credited for putting suede skirts and fuzzy tops on the map. She’s one of the greatest fashion icons of the ‘60s and her style radiates an effortless cool that’s inspired the unkempt looks of modern-day fashion queens Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. Marianne Faithfull’s music career (which has spanned over four decades), immaculate wardrobe and splashy lifestyle—including a romantic affair with Mick Jagger and struggles with drugs and alcohol—made her a cultural fixture.

Her Swinging London style consisted of long fur coats, oversized sunglasses and floppy hats, along with her shaggy blonde bangs that became her signature look that continues to inspire today.

For a piece of that British Invasion style, we’ve got the coats, scarves and boots that will take you back in time.
