Style Series- Creating a Unique Style Part 5: Choose a Fashion Idol

Creating a style that’s all your own can be difficult, especially when you and many of your peers shop at the same stores. These styling tips will help you break out of the mold and stand out with your own unique style!

Part 5: Choose a Fashion Idol

When all else fails in creating your own style- steal someone else’s! You will undoubtedly come through with your own twist on it anyway, so it will still be uniquely yours. Find a celebrity (or a few!) with a look that you love, and use their outfits to get ideas. Collect pictures of your favorite outfits of theirs (hello Pinterest!) and then study them. Ask yourself what makes the outfit appeal to you. Is it the colors that she (or he) mixes? The patterns? Maybe the cut of the clothing or the way the fabric drapes? If you can identify these elements, that can help you apply them to your own wardrobe without being discouraged that you don’t have the exact top or the exact accessory that she’s wearing.

Taylor Swift- Taylor is a great gal for inspiration for a girly-girl, with an occasionally edgy side. I loved the colors that she put together in this outfit, and when I saw the skirt I knew I had just the one to use in recreating her look!

Emma Watson- Emma can rock a lot of different looks, but she always looks very stylish. Even in a comfy travel outfit, you can tell she has a great sense of style! I love the monochromatic scheme of this outfit, and the mixing of a baggy sweater with a slim-fitting bottom half.

Elle Fanning- Elle has such a sweet look and always looks fabulous in photo shoots. She tends to wear oversized clothes with a boho look, but when I stumbled on this picture, I thought she looked adorable! I don’t have a skirt exactly like hers, but this pleated skirt is a similar style and I used the shoes to add in the colors of her skirt. Since my skirt is so plain, I added the bow belt as a “Clarisse” touch.

  1. Love this! The outfits you put together from the photos are great. Emma Watson is a favorite of ours and I think I will wear a similar outfit on my trip to Nevada later this month. 🙂 Thanks!
