Street Style Icons

Who do you look to for your day-to-day fashion inspiration? I constantly am searching for the newest and freshest faces in the entertainment business, who know what to wear and when to wear it.

Every person’s fashion icons are unique to themselves, as you try to develop your own sense of style. Bouncing ideas off of style icons, as well as regular people, can help you form your fashion identity.

My fashion icons include:

  1. Kendall Jenner – Casual, clean lines, minimalist, comfortable and cool are words I would use to describe Kendall Jenner’s style. She always is switching up her looks, often using basics, while including a statement piece to each and every one of her looks. As a model, it is her job to look good and sport pieces that make us all drool with envy. The more beautiful thing about Jenner’s style is that it’s an attainable look for everyone. She sports relatable pieces, such as basic crop tops and high-waisted jeans, that the average American can afford and feel comfortable in. It’s definitely no secret that Jenner loves her crop-tops and high-waisted apparel!

  2. Gigi Hadid – Cool and chic go hand-in-hand with Hadid’s style. She’s often seen sporting lots of chic clothes, and shares a similar style to that of Jenner’s. Both models are friends and bounce ideas off of each other. Hadid’s looks are elegant, and often, attainable for the average American, as well. Clean cut lines are also relevant in Hadid’s style, as she is often caught sporting basics, cool denim, and statement jackets and pieces. Hadid often goes out with a bang!
  3. Vanessa Hudgens – BOHO CHIC. Hudgens can make the best of the best look even more best. Her bohemian vibe and her ability to make things look effortless is a skill that not all can attain. Her style and fashion has adapted into a mature look that everyone can appreciate. Her street style is killer and she does not go unnoticed in my book. She loves her big, flowy pants and I can’t say I disagree with her insane obsession with flowy pants and skirts.
  4. Cara Delevigne – It is so hard for me not to rant and rave about Delevigne’s style, but she’s just so cool. Not only is her personality cool, but her style is absolutely rad. Delevigne is not afraid to take risks and she can always be seen sporting the most in-style items. Everything she owns, everyone else wants to own. Her style is unique, cool, chic, and classic. Delevigne is often caught sporting over-the-top, daring outfits, but somehow these outrageously cool items all seem to make themselves look good on her. Unique is the best way to describe this girl’s ever changing style.

All Choked Up

Looking for a quick, easy fix to dress up your kind-of basic outfit? Get choked up this season, because the 90s are making a comeback.

With Lisa Franks’ new eye makeup palette, to the return of crop tops and high-waisted pants, chokers are just another 90s trend that is making a huge comeback.

High-end jewelry designers, such as Michael Kors, Carbon & Hyde, Lili Claspe, Zimmermann, Eddie Borgo, Betsey Johnson and Jacquie Aiche have begun glamorizing the trend, using jewels and diamonds for a more elegant and sophisticated look.

Mirabel Diamante Star Choker

Models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been spotted sporting this trend numerous times. Chokers have become a staple in their closets, as they have been caught wearing a variety of different chokers, some made with diamonds, and other chokers are just made of velvet.

Style Icon and Fashion designer Kristin Cavallari even brought her Laguna Beach staple velvet choker back, Instagraming a photograph of herself in high school sporting a velvet choker. Looks like nothing has changed since the 90s!

Whether they are thick, thin, layered, black, velvet, lace, or made out of diamonds, this trend is a must-try.

What’s Your Nude Tone?

Tonal nudes are making an epic comeback this Spring. Whether you dress it up or dress it down, flesh tones are making appearances in fashion outlets everywhere and magazines, such as NYLON. NYLON’s March 2017 issue celebrates the “diversity of flesh-tone fashion” (NYLON).

Flesh-tones can be worn up or down, making it one of the most versatile color palette for designer labels, such as, Hood By Air, Stella McCartney, Prada, and Simone Rocha. All these designers featured nude tones in their most recent collections.

Nude tones are some of the most used colors this season for all pieces of clothing and accessories, including jumpsuits, bomber jackets, slip dresses, pant suits, shoes and trench coats. Adding a simple, tonal flesh-tones are a great way to accent your next outfit. Flesh-tone colors can also be worn by all skin tones, which is remarkable, making it versatile for all individuals.

In 2012, nude tones became such a hit that Christian Louboutin even released a whole line of nude pumps for every skin tone. In addition, flesh-tones were featured all over runways during 2012, especially during autumn and winter.

Nudal tones serve as a timeless color palette, always featured on runways every season. There is something about these tonal hues that makes it flattering on all skin tones and for all seasons. This season’s street wear should feature lots of nude tones, which is a perfect way for one to achieve a timeless, chic look, with an effortless, subtle vibe.

Lilly Sarti did an excellent job, featuring nude tones and earthy all over her Spring and Summer 2017 collection. Sarti featured nudal tones in jumpsuits, dresses, etc., emphasizing how versatile this up-and-coming trend is.

 

The whole Kardashian-Jenner clan has jumped on this trend, often sporting nude two-piece dresses and midi-length body fitting dresses.

At La Peria’s Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection party in Milan, model and fashion icon Kendall Jenner was caught busting out her nudes, wearing a plunging nude bodysuit, with silk satin nude tone skinny jeans and a nude tone cropped fur jacket.

 

Quit hiding your nudes and break them out this season! There’s nothing to be ashamed of.
