Comediennes are some of the zaniest dressers and Elaine Stritch can be counted amongst them.  She has a definite personal style that settled into its sweet spot sometime in the mid 1960′s.  She ran with the modish androgyny that borrows hats and neckties from the man’s side of the closet.  Staying firmly with neutrals with an occasional pop of color, Stritch works whites in the warmer months and shades of black in the cooler ones.  Her accessorizing is key with a pin here, pearls there and always those GLASSES! I can only hope that I can look this sharp in my 80′s.  Look at more Stritch style here.
