STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fashion Inspiration

If I had to guess, I’d say that these two Fashionistas had to be BFFs. That, or I just happen to find two complete strangers with near identical outfits. Let’s do a little comparison:

Fashionista I

  • Retro sunglasses
  • Lightweight linen tunic
    – Relaxed with sleeves rolled up
    – Wrinkled
  • Zebra tank top
  • Long strands of chains
  • Men’s watch
  • Distressed stove pipe skinny jeans
  • Slouchy brown leather and canvas riding boots
  • Oversized leather bag

Fashionista II

  • Lightweight linen button down 
    – Relaxed with sleeves rolled up
    – Wrinkled
  • Long strands of beads
  • Distressed stove pipe skinny jeans
  • White peep toe flats with black piping
  • Woven ethnic textile bag

While the individual pieces may vary (i.e. chains vs. beads) the overall effect is the same because the silhouettes are so similar. Keep this in mind the next time you are flipping through a fashion magazine for outfit ideas. When you spot an outfit that you would really like to replicate (even if it’s the outfit your BFF is wearing today), consider whether or not you already own a similar piece. 

My favorite piece this week comes from Fashionista II. Her ethnic textile bag brings a great personal narrative to her outfit.
