The Icon: Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot

If only I could take a train down south to play on the beach...
and nab a millionaire.

Some Like It Hot (1959) is one of my favourite films of all time. Not only is it a film made in the 50s that is set in the 20s, but it also presents the iconic Marilyn Monroe in one of her most famous (and most stylish) roles as the ditsy Sugar Kane Kowalczyk. 

Sugar may make bad decisions when it comes to men and booze, but she sure knows how to dress. 

Her best look is, without a doubt, the first outfit we see her in, when she's strutting her stuff before catching a train. Utterly iconic, and apparently wearable during chillier times. Style inspiration? Oh yes. 

Now, all I need to do is learn to play the ukulele and find an all-female band to travel across America with.
