You’ve read the latest issue of Vogue, you’ve re-organised your wardrobe and your Pinterest board is fuller than Kim Kardashian’s backside. So how on earth do you feel so freaking uninspired when it comes to your style?
If you feel like you’ve exhausted all known methods of searching for style inspiration, it’s time to turn to these cheeky style inspiration sources!
1. In Nature
“Oh god… here she goes with her dippy hippy cuffuffle”, I hear you murmur. But before you go ahead and press that ‘x’ on this page, what is about to follow contains no cliches of ‘feeling like the wind’ or ‘being at one with the ocean’. **Gags**
Everything is based on nature and just stepping outside can give you inspiration in terms of colours, textures, patterns and layers.
Walk through that forest, examine that impressive architecture in your city… you might just find some inspiration that will make you view the contents of your closet in a whole new light!
2. In Old Movies
Remember in the 00’s when we found our style inspiration in Lauren Conrad’s ‘The Hill’s’ Closet? Or when Reese Witherspoon totally made us want to don a pink suit a la Legally Blonde?
With the rise of social media and a growing online presence of style icons, TV and movies just aren’t cutting it when it comes to style inspiration.
Have a retro movie night and enjoy old classics such as ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ or ‘Clueless’. These are just two of the thousands of movies that could give you that little bit of style inspiration that you really need.
3. The Elderly
Forget Gigi and Alexa, some of the best style icons are old enough to be our grandparents. Iris Apfel, Karl Lagerfeld…. need I say more?
Although the old lady next door may not exactly be rocking Iris’s funky glasses, she may know a thing or too about those tailored 1950s jackets that you never got to experience.
I adored looking at my Nana’s old photos from when she was in her 20s. She made a trench coat out of animal feed bags during World War 2 and she rocked it!
Travel is one of the most inspiring things you can do in so many elements of life, style included.
With so many cultures in the world, each with unique traditional ways of dressing, as cheesy as it sounds, the world is practically a runway.
My love of chunky bohemian jewellery stems from my travels through South-East Asia. My love of surf wear and effortless denim was born during my Summer working at Catalina Island, California.
If you can’t afford to travel yourself, travel magazines and travel websites are another great source of style inspiration.
