Before there were style bloggers and hashtags, there was Martha. Here are a few super-hip pop culture obsessions that style matriarch Martha Stewart was into way before the Internet caught wind.
Menswear-Inspired White Shirts with Feminine Detail
Step aside, Jenna Lyons. Martha has been wearing pratical, tailored clothing since the beginning. The loose white Oxford button-down that's an absolute wardrobe must-have for sophisticated women? Martha's been wearing them for years.

Martha's always been about multiuse items and upcycling. So before the Brooklyn hipsters discovered the handy-dandy (and oh-so-cool) mason jar, Martha was painting them and using them as vases. Bearded men ain't got nothing on Martha.

Sure, it might be cool to be a cat lady these days, but Martha has always been all about her pets.. Here, she shows us how to make a hat for your cat. A hat. For your cat. Why is this not a meme?!

Every obsession needs at least three ridiculous spin-offs. Yoga has spawned surfing yoga, "bro" yoga (for dudes), and, most important, doga (yoga with dogs.) Martha, dog-lover extraordinaire, stepped in the spin-off almost before it even happened.

Oversized Chambray Shirts
Martha was Madewell before Madewell was Madewell. Also, she legitimately makes crafts, baked goods, and a multitude of other things really well. She's twice the woman Madewell could ever hope to be!

The elegant "lob" -- a hybrid of the words "long" and "bob" -- has been Martha's go-to haircut since her first book, "Entertaining" in 1982. Emma Stone can go take a hike -- Martha will take it from here.

These days, lady footwear is all about the orthopedic option: chunky Danish-inspired clogs, Velcro sandals, and Birkenstocks. Martha, a lady who appreciates function, has had her pair of comfy shoes for years.

Ron Swanson: Self-made man who builds canoes and loves bacon. Martha Stewart: Self-made woman who re-tiles her own roof and also loves bacon. We don't want to make assumptions, but.... Regardless, the ineffable Nick Offerman appeared on Martha's show years before he released a special on Netflix and became the mustachioed superstar he is today. She knew he was cool way before you did.

Americans are workaholics: We never turn off our cell phones, we're always answering e-mails -- the work is never done! But it was Martha who took it one step further and once said, "I never get sick. Why get sick? It's a waste of time." Respect, Martha.

Anthropologie is all about the vintage one-piece, and Etsy's currently flooded with that color-blocked one piece. Martha? She's been keeping it classy since her modeling days.
