Hey there readers,
Today I am going to introduce 5 key signature looks that perhaps is your area of expertise, a look you’ve been dying to try out or a look that makes you think “huh, I never thought of that before.”
And better yet, I will be introducing each look through one of my favorite models: the very own Karlie Kloss.
1. The Girlfriend
What you need to make the look work:
The Girlfriend is the epitome of girly. It is comprised of cute light fabrics, florals, pastels, ruffles and lace. For this look, you’ll need to channel your inner girly girl. Dig up or seek out a cute summer dress. Karlie wears a midi spaghetti strapped eyelet sundress, but to achieve this look you can also opt towards a flirty above the knee dress (scooter dresses work great) or even a maxi dress. This look is very innocent and natural, so keep your makeup and hair choice minimal and natural. The Girlfriend is intended to show off your best features, inside and out. Your signature necklace or bracelet, paired with cute pair of sandals or ballet flats will complement this look.
2. The Tom Boy
What you’ll need:
One piece of clothing you need to make this look work is a good pair of jeans. Whether it’s your favorite pair of faded boyfriend jeans or dark washed skinnies, you can pretty much do anything a pair of jeans. They key to making this look work is to use the right pieces to turn a pair of jeans into something chic while still keeping your casual look. My advice is so accessorize with everything else. Opt for a simple v-neck to go with your jeans, with something like studs or sequins on the shoulders. Always accessorize with your favorite belt, a skinny colored one or a neutral wide one. It’s always important to a little jewelry when dressing up a look. Go for your favorite bronze ring or long owl necklace. As always, a cute light cardigan or plaid flannel always completes the look. Remember to channel the smize of Karlie Kloss to finish off the look to your liking. Like any successful look, it’s always about the confidence. Once you have that down, anything can happen.
3. The Career Woman
Karlie Kloss is one fierce career woman in her career, but her she channels both the fashionable and determined woman, with her bohemian edge. The key to a great career woman look is simple elegance. That means lace trimmed dresses, studded or what is called the “peter pan” collar,
pencil skirts, vests or cardigans and heels that are classy, but aren’t over the top, like oxfords or penny loafers.
Keep the jewelry to a minimum, but always have a statement necklace with your blouse or classy watch.
4. The Risk-Taker
No one can call themselves a “fashionista” without being known for taking a few risks. Whether it’s mixing patterns, wearing a black dress with blue tights and pink shoes or pulling off the dramatic red lip in a casual setting. This look is edgy, free and daring. Keep it fun and fresh with leather pants, a dramatic top and “killer” shoes. The point to taking risks in fashion is to avoid becoming boring. You don’t want to be known for just one look, so don’t be afraid to play it up a little. And if that look doesn’t work, then don’t worry, you won’t have to try it again. How else are you gonna know otherwise?
What you’ll need:
Find a good pair of boots. Whether these are a daring pair studded combat boots or fierce heeled leather ones, boots can instantly amp up the tension. They take your from sweet and innocent, to the “I know what I’m doing” girl. You want to keep your top a little flirty so that you don’t come on too strong, so either go for the Karlie Kloss backless look or accessorize with jewelry.
5. The Day-Dreamer
I believe that a “day-dreamer” is the only way to perfectly describe this look. It contains the best of the “girlfriend” by the girly and romantic feel that it brings, but is also very daring and trendy, like the “risk-taker.”
Here Karlie is wearing a long sleeved mini dress, a leather satchel, rusted orange/red loafer flats and a burgundy floppy hat. The key thing about this look is that it’s very easy, almost effortless. That’s the look you want to go for. It’s the kind of look that you can easily put together in five minutes or less, but every piece chosen goes together and works. It’s the combination of free and simple, but yet, everything about is trendy and chic. For me, that is everything that Bohemian embodies.
So here’s a little inspiration to get all of you going to create a new fresh look for yourselves. They can all be done with pieces that you already have in your closet, but it’s all a matter of pairing the right items together to get the look you desire. Fashion should be fun and free to experiment with. Let us know how the “fashion creations” are going. Feel free to send pics of your favorite looks.
Stay tuned until next time.
Always stay pretty,
