As time continues to move forward, the list of style icons continues to grow. However, no matter how many years pass by, there will always be a select few who stay at the forefront of our minds. One such icon is Marilyn Monroe. Blame it on her unparalleled stardom, which cemented her status as a household name and style icon in Hollywood, or her effortlessly chic off-duty ensembles, but there’s no question that Marilyn Monroe’s outfits are simply timeless.

Monroe perfectly captured the epitome of classic style whether she was wearing a simple sweater and capris, a little black dress, or luxurious gown. To show you what we mean, we’ve pulled together the late actress’s most iconic ensembles that prove she’ll always be an inspiration for fashion lovers everywhere. Scroll down to see them all below.

This ensemble was so good Madonna re-created it for her "Material Girl" music video.

If you're looking for an effortlessly chic outfit, try a turtleneck dress with sandals.

For those of you who want to wear a timeless outfit combination, you'll never go wrong with a classic turtleneck and capris.

Create a modern-day version of this ensemble with a pair of overalls and a striped tee.

No one knew how to style a chic skirt suit like Marilyn Monroe, and this outfit is making us want to pull off the look for 2019.

The famous actress sang "Happy Birthday" to President Kennedy in a glittering gown, and there's no doubt it's one of the most memorable renditions of the song to date.

Perhaps Monroe knew what she was doing when she put on this classic LBD. And thanks to its timeless silhouette, you can wear the same look today without a second thought.

This is one look that needs no introduction.

Monroe had plenty of glamorous moments to last a lifetime, but this metallic, pleated dress takes the cake—especially as it became a staple style at hot spots like Studio 54.

And now, check out the pieces to add to your closet for an Audrey Hepburn–inspired wardrobe.

The nautical-inspired look is one that instantly gave us visions of chic Parisian girls. Sure, Breton stripes and navy, red, and white may be a bit of a French-girl cliché, but honestly, sometimes style c...
