Francesca Burns: Get the Look

Francesca Burns wanted to be a lawyer before she became a stylist and the editor of i-D Magazine.

But from her highly eclectic, colorful, and retro outfits, you would never be able to tell that she had any serious interest in law.

Fashion runs in her blood, and thankfully she realized it, because we need creative, quirky souls like Burns to liven things up a bit.

Burns gravitates towards vintage 50s, 60s, and 70s shapes like long circle skirts, fitted blazers, and super short lengths. She’s also a huge fan of all types of prints, like leopard and stripes, and is not afraid to wear them from head to toe.

With her platinum blonde hair, eye-skimming bangs, and sky-high platform heels, it is hard to miss Burns wherever she may be.

No matter what she wears, she stays true to her love of vintage, color play, and contrast. It's her youthful vitality and experimental aesthetic that keeps the fashion world interesting and fresh, and that is why we are obsessed with getting her style.  Find how to do so, below.
