The reigning queen of rock 'n' roll, Stevie Nicks, put gypsy style on music's map (the song of the same name is always on our repeat for a reason!). And, to this day, girlfriend isn't afraid of a bell or angel sleeve — not to mention all of that marvelous millinery. Channel the cool crooner in a modern way with tousled tresses, a gloriously cheap turban, and an easy embroidered LBD courtesy of John Lewis. This is a "Landslide" of a look if we've ever seen one!

The Velvet Underground
German native Nico first hit the scene posing for Vogue and Elle (she was 5'10"!), scored a minor role in Fellini's La Dolce Vita, and ended up a Warhol wonder child after recording with the Stones' Brian Jones. While the band's sound didn't hit the zeitgeist until much later, her bohemian approach to dressing and timeless beauty made its mark immediately. In one of our favorite images of the chanteuse, she stands nonchalantly with her all-black-clad band in a killer suit, scarf, and smug look. Snag that same effortless-yet-head-turning vibe with some MIH bells, a matching jacket, and retro circular sunnies from House of Harlow.
What says spring more than sporting some floral jeans, a gauzy, boho-chic scarf, a bright mani, and cranking Avicii on the ride to Santa Monica? Not much, kids. Not much.
Besides maybe George Harrison, Jim Morrison holds headlining heartthrob status in our score book. That tortured, poetic beauty — those tight leather pants! — whew, the thought of him is enough to make any girl swoon. To incite a mob of fans of your own, here's the perfect venue-ready look inspired by the soulful former Venice dweller. It howls hot "L.A. Woman," no doubt about it.
Most of us missed Jerry's on-stage heyday, and what we wouldn't give to have witnessed the magic in action! Well, since Coachella's the next best thing to Woodstock, this freewheelin' ensemble could be a strong contender for your packing list. The Cult Gaia headpiece may not exactly be "Scarlet Begonias," but mixed with a fresh spin on Birks and a flowy tie-dyed maxi from Free People, you'll be "Truckin'" to Indio looking 2013-meets-1969.
