On this day 35 years ago, the world lost the king of rock and roll. Elvis Presley’s tragic death at 42 shocked the nation and, as then-president Jimmy Carter made clear, irreparably changed the face of American pop culture. Elvis’s most celebrated tracks, not to mention his heartbreaking slow-motion fall from grace, may be seared into our collective memory, but let’s not forget the influence he had on fashion as well at the time — and I don’t just mean his jumpsuit phase. So without further ado, let’s garner some style inspiration from that old beloved hound dog (and with just a touch of help from Priscilla) …

Style Inspiration: Team USA Women’s Gymnastics

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: we looooove our women’s gymnastics team! Gabby, McKayla, Jordyn, Kyla, and Aly [So many Ys! -- Editor] put on an amazing show and took home a stack of well-deserved gold medals for their efforts (I totally cried when Aly landed the final combination in her floor routine–did you?).

Style Inspiration: Selina Kyle In “The Dark Knight Rises”

I wasn’t sure about Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), but after seeing “The Dark Knight Rises” this weekend, I am totally on board.

Movies may offer you your favorite characters served up live on the big screen, but books allow your imagination to run wild. Sure, they describe details of appearance, and mannerism, and style of dress, but it’s up to you to fill in the blanks. The film versions are often disappointing when they don’t live up to the image in your mind’s eye, but sometimes they’re truly spot-on — like these ladies, who happen to have been plucked from the pages of four books and reincarnated onscreen in overwhelmingly effective ways.

After the jump, a series of style inspirations straight out of some of my very favorite pages…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Summer Camp

I’m not a big fan of summer camp. Probably because the one time I went to summer camp every other camper in my cabin got violently ill, I had to deflect projectile vomit with my sleeping bag, the counselors vaguely accused me of poisoning everyone, and–unrelated but just as tragic–my favorite soccer shorts got swept down the river, never to be seen again. Whether your camp memories are positive, negative, or nonexistent, it’s easy to appreciate the laid back style of this summer tradition. Get the camp-y look for yourself, after the jump!
