Sharon Tate rose to fame in the 1960s, quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most beloved up-and-coming starlets. Between her memorable performance in Valley of the Dolls (which earned her a Golden Globe nomination) and her signature '60s style, Tate was almost instantly one of the era's defining icons alongside the likes of Priscilla Presley and Audrey Hepburn.

Despite her tragic early death during the Manson family murders in 1969, Tate's legacy lives on in both film and fashion. In 2019, a new generation fell in love with her effortless mod style when Margot Robbie portrayed her in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Whether she was leaving the airport or a movie premiere, Tate never missed an opportunity to make a statement, often opting for retro patterns and timeless silhouettes. Read on for eight of the most iconic Sharon Tate outfits of all time, complete with product picks to recreate the look.
