Like most women who have spent time exploring and developing their personal style and learning about what clothes are flattering for their body shape, Meryl Streep seems to understand what works very well for her and appears to have a formula…at least when she’s wearing a dress….that she regularly sticks to.

  • Necklines are either deep V’d, scooped or off the shoulder to highlight the decolletage, collar bone or shoulder.  Also lengthening her neck and bringing all the attention up to her lovely face.
  • She often wears a belt or her dresses and jackets have ties or bands to accentuate her waist
  • Skirt lengths generally sit over the knee, mid-calf (which is not always flattering but works for Meryl because of the shape of her legs) or long to the ground
  • Sleeves often finish near or close to the elbow (drawing attention to the waist) or just above the wrist. (exposing a delicate part of her body)
  • Often she wears a peep-toe shoe

Not only is Meryl a stylish woman, and of course an incredibly talented woman, she’s also a very wise woman.  During a recent Q & A session after accepting an honorary doctorate from Indiana University she had some advice for young people (wanting to become actors):

“For young women, I would say, don’t worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things.”

“For young men, and women too, what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now I don’t. It’s okay.”

Bravo Meryl!
