While the country mourns the passing of Associate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, many are looking for ways to honor her. Many are donating their time and money to her favorite causes while others are calling their Senators, writing letters, and signing petitions. Justice Ginsberg’s Legacy is one not many can match. She was a shining beacon of Equality.
Over here at STYLD, we want to honor her in a proper fashion, her fashion. Now not all of us can rock a black judge rob, so let's look at the jewels. Justice Ginsberg had an iconic fashion sense, with incredible signature pieces, including the statement necklace, round stud earrings, and, of course, the brooch. All of these items can be found at your local vintage shop, resale or upcycle stores, Esty and many many other retails. Below are a few examples of her iconic style to get you started.
We celebrate her life and style with her three signature pieces:
1. The Statement Necklace/Collars:
Each of the RBG collars represents a different emotion. Some are sentimental, made, or given to her by someone. Some are to show dissent or agreement, and others are to show that nothing could keep her from her job. The original reason for the collars was to give personality and femininity to an establishment dominated far too long by men.
Here are a few statement necklaces you can get for yourself:
2. The Round Stud Earring
Like many women from the RBG era, piercing your ears was a no-no. Luckily fashion provided the answer, which is why many vintage earrings are ordained with a clip-style backing. Ginsburg has quite a collection to match any outfit or mood, but make no mistake, it’s never too matchy-matchy.
Here are three stud earrings you can rock like RBG:
3. The Brooch
You never say RBG in a suit jacket, coat, dress, or robe without a brooch. If you aren’t sure what a brooch is or how to wear one; don’t worry you aren’t alone. Long story short it's an ornament fastened to clothing with a hinged pin and catch. It’s purely decorative and to give your outfit a little 'zhuzh'.
Live your best brooch life with these gorgeous pieces:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg let her fashion do the talking before she even reads her position, we all knew her standpoint. In honor of her, let your outfits and accessories do the talking. It’s much more dignified than getting into a yelling match. And as we all know, when they went low, RBG went high… High Fashion.
On a final note, the most fashionable thing you can do is VOTE and VOTE EARLY!
