Are there any figures from culture, past or present whose style you admire or have drawn from?
Hmm. Probably not more than an average person.
I sort of just randomly pick and choose people I admire but I don’t have any one specific idol I consider to be infallible style-wise.
Danerys Targaryen (#GameofThrones character) – For badass dragon Queen looks. BADASS.
Lupita Nyong’o – For fresh colourful styles and just the most amazing colour mixing. She is stunning.
Lauren Hutton – For classic menswear of course. Loose, easy, comfortable, don’t care, and wonderful.
Olivia Palermo – Modern classics. She always has a little SOMETHING in her outfits, like this classic one above, I’d totally wear, but would not have thought about an orange sweater peeking out at the cuffs. Genius.
Kat Tanita – Blogger of With Love, From Kat whose entire wardrobe I pretty much covet. Her style is more boho than mine, but I love how she mixes classics with edgier pieces but always keeps it neutral and minimalist.
Miranda Kerr – Edgy and casual, she always has an outfit for everything. I love the way she mixes in leather leggings with everything!
Padma Lakshmi (of #TopChef fame) – Who has some gorgeous outfits on the show. Also, her memoir Love, Loss and What we Ate is really gripping. A good idea, I couldn’t put it down, it was such a page-turner with a satisfying ending.
Marilyn Monroe – Classically feminine and girly which I am sometimes. I love the clean lines, the high-waisted skirts, paperbag waists, the jackets that are classic and loose… I mean that outfit above says it all for me.
Jacqueline Onassis – Classic in general. Love me a good trench & sunglasses.
Reese Witherspoon – Always looks comfortable as a mother running around in flats (which I am). I love her classic American style, jeans, sweater, flats.. that’s my thing. I love the shoes and the animal prints too.
And plenty more…. depending on who shows up on Pinterest or my Blog feed. I love getting inspiration, getting out of my comfort zone, like wearing one-sleeve things…
I tend to avoid the flashier outfits that are skintight or very glam. It doesn’t fit my lifestyle. I want wearable outfits.
