Keri Russel {Style Icon}

I've been a fan of Keri Russell since Felicity and I even stuck by my girl when she did the post-breakup-hair-chop on the show.  Lately, she's been making a resurgence since her new show "The Americans" has become such a hit.  Seriously, if you haven't watched it yet, you should.  Keri plays a Russian spy living deep undercover in the U.S. during 1981 at the height of the Cold War {bonus, her husband on the show played by Matthew Rhys is pretty cute}.  

Anyway -- this past year I've fallen back in love with Keri Russell and she's quickly becoming a favorite style icon of mine.  Here are four reasons why you should probably gather fashion inspo from Felicity ...

1 // Ten years after the end of Felicity and she's still true to her tomboy roots.  Keri Russell shows us that laid back casual can still look polished and cool and that you don't have to dress to the nines to look good.  Ripped jeans, button-up shirts, oversized sweaters, and a stand-by pair of oxfords are all you need.

2 // But when Russell wants to make a statement -- whoa momma ... does anyone look this good in an all leather dress?!  And if an all leather dress is too intimidating (yup!) then you can pull off this look with a pair of leather pants or a leather jacket instead!

3 // Somewhere in between "laid back, tomboy chic" and "leather, leather, leather" is Keri's "polished in a blazer" look.  This is proof that a good blazer goes with anything and can totally pull a look together.

4 // And lastly, perhaps the most important take-away fashion inspiration from Russell is that when you're standing in front of your closet before a night out and have no idea what to where -- all black is your answer.  You'll rarely see Russell on the red carpet in anything but all black -- dresses, jumpsuits, or separates -- doesn't matter as long as it's all black.
