Style Guide to Selena's Most Iconic Looks

This year, Selena Quintanilla-Perez would have been 49 years old. It's sad that she is no longer here, but what an incredible legacy she has left behind.

I was a toddler when she passed, but my sister had all of her cassettes (it was the 90's). I loved singing along to them. I'd dance around my house with the broom as my mic, and my mom would blow out my bangs so I could feel like the Tejano star!

Now, even in my late 20's, Selena still holds a special place in my heart, and in the hearts of many others around the globe.

Her music is universal, and so is her style. So here are some of her most iconic looks that you can replicate yourself.
