Gladiator sandals, denim cutoffs, and bohemian belts are all hallmarks of Sienna Miller’s summer wardrobe. But although the majority of Miller devotees, who grew up adoring her knack for crochet waistcoats, put their prairie skirts away in the late Noughties, Sienna continues to fly the flag for her unkempt interpretation of opulent bohemia. Even if we have given up the coin-studded belts, we would be lying if we said we weren’t still present for every flashback.
Name another person who can not only pull off Ugg boots and rave sunglasses but also make the appearance of festival-goers into a fashion trend (oh, to be at Glastonbury 2006). Before Telfar Clemens, Molly Goddard, and Glenn Martens agreed to cozy collaborations, Miller is solely to blame for keeping everyone’s favorite shearling footwear in style.
The slouchy tote is similar. While handbag trends come and go, Sienna has stuck to her fit-your-life-in cabas-style shoulder bag, from the massive Givenchy Nightingale that swallowed her belongings and gave her New York looks free-spirited flair to the Balenciaga Motorcycle, worn when she spent nights with Jude Law at the Groucho in the early ’00s.
When other distinctly English events happen, Miller’s summer wardrobe can shift to a more fitted approach in contrast to the Worthy Farm styles that are so deeply imprinted in the public psyche. Consider Wimbledon: Sienna is all cream and blue Ralph Lauren tailoring and airy linen jumpsuits for Pimm’s in the stands and strawberries in between matches. The lady who once epitomized the eccentric Notting Hill set’s style, but who now goes her way on both sides of the Atlantic – still turning heads with her characteristic beachy waves, of course – fits this refined take on British summery cool.
