Talk It Out

Who Is Your Style Inspiration?

Tell us in the comments!

Mine always has and probably always will be Alexa Chung.

Are you over me talking about her yet?

I know I am but somehow I manage to slip her into absolutely everything I write.

It’s because she’s nailed cool but wearable down to a T (-shirt! Get it!?), from vintage to basics AC knows wassup.

For those, who are like me and actually can’t get enough, you should check the shopping edit of pieces straight from her wardrobe.

Seriously, I tracked them down myself.

She’s just #blessed us with her new collection (someone buy me the blue suit please!?) and now I need Hollywood to make the Alexa Chung movie, the costumes will be off the chain.

Clearly, I need new inspiration as it sounds like I am crossing the border from fangirl to stalker.

So do tell (in the comments below), who is YOUR style inspiration?

    I always look to films and the outfits of Audrey Hepburn, I think she has such a classic style that always looks chic and timeless. Love this! x

    Interesting post I’d never thought about it but I’m definitely super influenced by what my friends wear. I also really like Kate bosworth I think she has great personal style

  • Françoise SALMON

    mine is Jenna Lyons or Leandra Medine… but also Carrie Bradshaw ! There is always some good ideas to catch by them all !!!

  • Darling the people who influence your aesthetic and style perspective, is often about being aware of everything rolled into one. Like making a perfect cocktail. A little bit of Grace Kelly, a pinch of Diana Vreeland , a teaspoon of Beyoncé, stir well ,over pour over Blake Lively, top with a slice of Rihanna and a shake of Lauren Conrad ,mix with Patricia Field serve immediately with a side of D&G and a garnish of Valentino and Gucci .
    My Inspiration makes me fabulous!!

    I mean, a lot of people can be fashionable, and even fashion icons, but it’s almost hard to believe a woman can make every outfit she touches (wears!) into GOLD.
    Perfect blend of daring, chic and elegant.
