One question that I often get asked is, What fashionistas inspire my style? When I first started blogging, I posted about my adoration for Olivia Palermo's classic street style. She continues to marvel me with her crisp trends & clean style.
Here are some of my more recent favorite summer styles of Olivia's...
Every look has 1 or 2 focal points of the entire style. When people ask how you even begin emulating a fashion icon's style, I always start at the focal point & the rest I try to make my own unique personal style. I will teach you how to follow your own favorite fashionista's style...
First, Find the Focal Point of the Overall Outfit:
(i.e. What are your eyes drawn to?)
Now, build a look around that piece. This first picture is a more casual street style, possibly intended for morning errands & coffee. Dress up this easy going style, with a chunky statement necklace & keep the rest of the outfit simple:
When I saw this next picture, I immediately was drawn to Olivia's scalloped shorts:
Since this was more of formal chic style, keep the fabrics that you choose that way as well. Stick to silk or chiffon, something with a sheer finish. Then, dress up your accessories & it will tie the entire look together.
Without a doubt, I was immediately drawn to Olivia's bright blazer & less dramatic color blocking style. A stylish look, intended for a flashy night out.
Reproducing this style is always my favorite, because you almost cannot go wrong. Like I have said before adding colors to your night time look, is not only chic but very mod. It is a fun look to play around with, because not only are you able to block different brights, but you are also able to mix & match different fabrics & accessories!
One summer style that I have not spent as much time blogging about, but I absolutely adore, is patterned blouses! The ornate structure is perfect for summer & bring personality to your overall look.
Play around with patterns. See which patterns look best on you. Do you like florals, animal print, dots & stripes, etc...? Choose a pattern that brings you to life & add pops of color for accessories!
Now that I have shared my
obsession love for Olivia & how I try to emulate her street style, I am dying to hear who you all love as your fashionista?!
