When it comes to fashion icons, Grace Jones sits firmly at the forefront: inspiring countless runway looks and pioneering brave new trends. Over the past 40 years, Jones has been pivotal in championing androgyny, boldness and the abnormal in both the music and fashion worlds. For this, she has earnt the reputation of a fashion muse and produced some iconic looks that we have compiled at Rokit for you, ready to recreate!

 

Grace Jones’ Look 1: Suited Androgyny

Some of Grace Jones’ most recognisable and iconic style moments involve her use of suits. She often wears men’s suit jackets, like this one, telling Dazed that she is a “role switcher”, moving between the prescribed categories of ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ in style. This, combined with her dynamic makeup- strong contour and eyeshadow shapes-created a look that was copied onto the catwalk.

Recreate this look by experimenting with our vintage suits shop womens vintage suits and mens vintage suits, and pairing it with some classic leather gloves.

Grace Jones’ Look 2: Fur on Fur on Fur

Through the years, Grace Jones has sported some legendary looks involving fur. In this look from 1983, the fur coat takes centre stage, complemented with some extreme cat-eye sunnies that solidify her fashion legacy. To get this look, team one of our 70s floor length faux fur coats with a suitably funky pair of vintage shades.
