Hey everyone! This is the first of many Celebrity Style Icons, which will be a post of inspirational ensembles from the most stylish celebrities, and the very first one is featuring the stunning Vanessa Hudgens! This girl can not only act and sing, but she can pull off a mean street style! The girl is talented! She is one of my major inspirations, and one of the reasons I’m hooked on street style. She has a knack for taking oversized baggy things and making them look trendy and chic as you can see in the photos. Take a look at these six looks of hers and take notes! I sure am! Happy street styling!
For today’s Look Of The Day, I chose to go with another street style ensemble. (If you couldn’t tell, this is one of my favorite styles(: ) The thing that really gives this ensemble character and a unique feature is the faux leather leggings. These are a huge fashion statement this season! They go perfect with any kind of oversized top! You could use a chiffon oxford, blazer, and heels, just as well as you could do an oversized tee, beanie, and sneakers. The cargo jacket is also a popular piece this season. They seem to be THE street style piece. Basically, add this to your outfit, and it’s street style! This was one of my experimental outfits, and I think it came together relatively well. It also would have looked great if I had used a leopard scarf to compliment the shoes, but the black scarf made it look more simple and carefree, reflecting my personality! What are some things you would do to your favorite street style ensemble to reflect yourself? Take some time to experiment with your next look!
One of my absolute favorite things to do is see how many different ways I can wear the same one article of clothing. I have discovered that you can actually go quite far with the same piece. A major factor in converting an outfit from one look to another is accessories. Your choice in accessories can make or break the look. Just remember to keep things in the same category. Like, if your going for dressy, opt for a dazzling statement necklace as opposed to a small simple one. And don’t forget about shoes too! Your shoes should always match your theme as well. For example, if you’re going for a casual look, high tops may be a better choice over pumps. (Though on occasion, those can work the casual look, as well) something I do to help me keep things straight is to categorize my accessories into styles, i.e. All the formal jewelry together, all casual together, etc. and the same with shoes. That way you never get confused. But don’t let that confine you to one category of accessories only! Often times, a dressy necklace will give a casual outfit the flare it needs. So don’t forget to think outside the box! Mix and match! How can you switch up your favorite piece in your wardrobe? Can you make at least four different looks using the same item? I dare you to wear the same item again two days after you wear it and see how well you can disguise it! 🙂 Happy experimenting!
Look of the Day time! Today, I chose an ensemble that would be perfect for those chilly, late fall days, but I just had to wear this today because I just scored this scarf yesterday! (Only seven bucks! Holla!) Even though the color scheme is a bit autumn oriented, this outfit is perfect to wear on freeeeezing days like today. Like literally freezing. (The HIGH here in Kansas for today was only 19! Brrrrr!). If you’re really aiming for the cozy look, I suggest finding a scarf that is really thick and that you can wrap around your neck about three times. This makes it look fuller around your neck and more cozy. The scarf I’m wearing is an infinity scarf and I was able to wrap it around three times. And if your scarf isn’t infinity, never fear! There is a solution! just take the ends of the scarf and tie them together, making a loop. BOOM. Infinity scarf! Tall leather boots also play a huge role in the cozy chic look. They are super warm and super chic. I happened to score these babies for twenty bucks at Charlotte Russe a few weeks ago! Holla again! 🙂 But if you are thinking to buy a pair, NOW IS THE TIME! since spring is right around the corner, stores are putting all their winter boots on sale. (Even though its still cold as heck outside!) The last major component to this look is the ivory sweater. I actually bought this at JC Penney a few years ago for about twenty bucks. And I cannot stop wearing it! It goes great with just about any winter piece and is super comfy and cozy. When I bought mine, I made sure I bought a large on purpose, though I’m normally an extra small. This makes the sweater look even comfier and cozier, and not to mention cuter! (In my opinion) But whether you buy it big, or just normal, the ivory sweater is a need this winter season!
And just like that, with three major pieces, each twenty dollars or less, you can create a super chic winter outfit! And don’t forget to play around with colors and palettes to create your own unique look! What’s your opinion on this ensemble? How would you change it? Feedback is welcomed! Did you create your own version of the winter chic outfit? If so, leave a comment with a link to the picture! I would love to check it out and give feedback! Happy styling!
Leopard print is been the fashion favorite this season. The fact that it is a print that involves only rich neutral colors makes it nearly necessary to any wardrobe. Leopard can easily be paired with virtually any color. The look in which you choose to incorporate with your leopard pieces can be stated simply by the color you choose to pair it with. Dark colors, such as mustard yellow or burgundy, can give your look an edgy, mysterious feel, while blush pink and teal can give it a more girly, flirty feel. Along with color, leopard can be used in an ensemble through the use of accessories. Leopard shoes, handbags, shades, scarves and so much more, can be used to spice up any simple outfit, and it looks classy! Leopard pieces are a MUST HAVE this season! What kind of leopards are in your closet? How do you experiment with leopard? Don’t be afraid to play around with it and flaunt your new leopard looks!
Guess what!? It’s time for today’s Look Of The Day! Today, I went with an indie themed ensemble with a bit of an edge. the graphic lion tank includes lots of earthy tones, which paired nicely with my indie fringe necklace. That black cardigan, ladies and gents, is a LIFESAVER! it literally goes with everything. You’ve seen it before, in my cozy street style look, and now its reppin’ indie! And let me tell you, that’s not the last you will see of it! If you have not yet invested in a black cardigan of some sort, I would highly recommend it! (That goes for the black combat boots, too! Highly versatile!) This ensemble is perfect for a relaxed Saturday, running errands around town and doing a little shopping! To switch things up a bit, you could wear a denim/chambray shirt instead of the cardigan and switch out the black boots for brown, to give it an even more earthy feel! (I just prefer black, to give it a little edge, but you do what you feel expresses yourself the most!) So…what do you think? Do you like the outfit? Would you change it in any way? Leave your comments below! I want to know what you all think!
What’s up guys? My bad for getting the Look Of The Day up so late! I know you’ve all been dying to see a new look today. 😉 So this ensemble has quite a different look than yesterday’s look. This look follows more of a southwestern theme. The beaded shoulders on the top and the spiked necklace compliment each other well and add some character to spice up this simple ensemble. And when in doubt, always add tall leather boots! The burnt orange shade of leather on the boot also compliments the southwestern theme, as well as the aztec beaded design on the top. What do you guys think? Leave your comments below! Feedback is more than welcomed!! 🙂 Check back tomorrow for the next Look Of The Day! Love you all! Xoxo
