I’ll be traveling for the subsequent handful of months, so I lately downloaded a bevy of books on my iPad to maintain me entertained. About forty pages in to Miss O’Dell, (the memoir of Chris O’Dell, a private buddy and assistant to many of rock and roll’s greatest names) I couldn’t support but be enamored by Pattie Boyd, the British model and photographer who married George Harrison and later Eric Clapton.
About Pattie Boyd
Some girls have all the luck, do not they? Following becoming cast as an extra in the film A Tough Day’s Night, Pattie Boyd started dating, and at some point married, George Harrison of the Beatles. She inspired several of George’s songs, including the Beatles hit “Something.”
When George started to drift away from Pattie due to his obsession with Eastern spirituality, Eric Clapton, one particular of George’s close buddies, fell in really like with Pattie and wrote “Layla” to express his anguish more than the scenario. At some point, Pattie and George divorced and she married Eric Clapton, who would later write “Wonderful Tonight” in her honor. She released a memoir as well, and let me tell you — I haven’t completed it yet, but I’ve already got a complete-fledged girl crush on Pattie!
Even though she was married twice, this blonde beauty was no keep-at-property wife. She flourished as a model and trendsetter in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Prepared to steal a small bit of Pattie’s muse style? Read on!
Pattie Boyd’s Style

Pattie’s style blended elements of hippie chic and mod style. She lived in floppy hats, oversized sweaters, fringed boots, and adorable frocks. Pattie, getting British, also represented English style in the way she dressed, rocking trench coats and Peter Pan collars like a pro. She was also quick to accessorize with tights, platform shoes, statement jewelry, and much more!
Pattie’s signature beauty appear revolved about her fluffy blonde hair and complete fringe bangs. She usually lined her leading eyelids with black eyeliner, but kept the rest of her makeup fairly simple.
Jeans, Best, Hat, Purse, Shoes, Earrings
Hippie chic style is generating a comeback, and there’s no greater source of inspiration that the genuine deal itself! Dust off your old flared jeans from high school and pair them with a flowy tunic. Add some peace sign earrings, Lita boots, and a cross-physique purse. If you’re feeling actually daring, finish with a floppy sun hat. So chic!
Dress, Bangles, Shoes, Eyeliner
This appear taps in to the mod side of Pattie’s style. A geometric minidress like this one particular will set your look apart from the typical sundress-and-wedges uniform. The white straps on these sandals have a Pattie-esque mod flair to them as nicely. Finish your look with a stack of matching bangles, black liquid eyeliner, and a high, poofy ponytail.
Sweater, Shorts, Boots, Belt, Sunglasses, Hairband
I could entirely see Pattie Boyd wearing an outfit like this in the course of her days at Friar Park with George Harrison! A cozy sweater will look fantastic with denim shorts and your favorite worn-in belt. Make the appear hippie-chic with round sunnies, fringed boots, and a hippie headwrap.
