My Style Inspiration


When it comes to fashion I'm constantly looking for new inspiration. I feel like my looks range from uber feminine to edgy based on my mood. One day I'll pull a drapey dress and block heels and the next will be ripped denim with sneakers. Isn't that what fashion is all about - expressing yourself and trying new things?

There are three trends that I tend to lean towards: classic femininity, boho chic, and edgy basics. I usually stick to one of these categories for a full outfit but also love mixing for a new twist on things. I also try to dress for my shape and have a good eye for what looks best on me. As I get older, it's definitely quality over quantity. However I also love to have fun with trends!


Today I wanted to share three of my go-to style icons that I feel fit my closet the best (or at least who fill my Pinterest boards). These ladies know how to werk an outfit and are always so pulled together. Now, if only I can raid their closets...


Classic Femininity
Key Influencer: Julia Engel of "Gal Meets Glam"

...
Who's that girl? San-Francisco based fashion and beauty blogger
Where can I find her? Drinking rose in romantic places such as Italy, Hawaii, and Paris
How does she describe her style? "My style is very feminine and classic, not so much dependent on trends. I really try and dress for my body and just go with what I’m initially drawn to and what catches my eye. My style has evolved over the years and the older I get, the easier it is for me to shop and know exactly what I want."
Key style pieces: Blush, feminine silhouettes, delicate details, investment bags
See also: Olivia Palermo, Jenny of "Margo and Me", Lauren Conrad, Krystin of "Suburban Faux Pas"


Boho Chic
Key Influencer: Paolo Alberdi of "BlankItinerary"

...
Who's that girl? Fashion influencer, stylist, designer and creative director of Blankitinerary.com
Where can I find her? Roaming Coachella or the streets of LA
How does she describe her style? "I would say my personal style is mixing highs and lows, combining basics in every way possible and also playing around with textures and prints every once in a while. I love to try out new trends and adapt them to my style and create my own."
Key style pieces: Suede, neutral colors, long-line jackets, sunnies, hats
See also: Sienna Miller, Kate Bosworth, Jules of "Sincerely Jules"

Edgy Basics
Key Influencer: Gigi Hadid

...
Who's that girl? International fashion model
Where can I find her? Hitting the hottest runways and the pavement
How does she describe her style? "It's funny because it's definitely different when I'm in New York or when I'm home in California. I think that kind of take on two different personalities in those two places through my style. In California I'm more of a beach chick and I kind of take on a model city girl when I'm in New York."
Key style pieces: Bomber jackets, ripped denim, monotone outfits, sneakers, basic tshirts
See also: Ashley Benson, Kendall Jenner, Cara of "Cara Loren"
