Recently, my boyfriend accompanied me on a shopping trip. In general I don’t like for him to tag along while I clothes shop. Due to the fact that he sings the same two songs, “Don’t you own that?” and my personal favorite “You would look so good in this, get this one.”
Now to some, my boyfriends coined shopping phrases sound supporting, even sweet. To my sensitive ears (yes, ill admit it! I get sensitive when it comes to my clothing choices) it can sound limiting.
After a day of shopping and bickering, my man turned to me and asked…”you wear the same type of clothing all the time, you should branch out. You would look lovely in anything you wear.” (okay sweet thing to say…).
Now this simple suggestion had me thinking. Do I have a style icon? Does everyone? (&& by the way if you read blogs, most bloggers do in fact have style icons.) I must have missed that memo.
So I went on a style Icon hunt…
Firstly I tried to decide what “style” i prefer. Which, let me tell you didn’t really help. I enjoy the most girly spectrum of clothing, ordained with bows and lace. To the more edgy, I need holes in everything to function, style!
Hmm… So in stead I started googling. Who in this massive fashion world could I look to for style assistance.
Thus I have complied a mini list if you will, of my style icons!
Blogger. Youtuber. General Clothing Badass
This girl makes wearing jeans, edgy t-shirts and pieces of lust worthy jewelry look easy. Simply put this women to me exudes excellence. Thus she HAD to be on my style Icon List. https://instagram.com/heyclaire/
model. actor. singer.
Cara’s style is comfortable. Intertwined with the perfect amount of grunge and a pop of tailored pieces. Her style speaks to a more laid back outlook on life, while still being New York worthy. Defiantly a idealism && style I can hop on board with. https://instagram.com/caradelevingne/
Model. Designer. Artist.
This lovely ladies style is bubble pink cuteness with an edge. It’s not odd to see her rocking all shades of pastels, accompanied with chains and studs. https://instagram.com/akitching/
Her style is classic, with a new age edge. Favoring simple cuts and colors, she add pops of fun into her outfits with neat props and accessories.
