Everyone has their own unique sense of style, and although many people are extremely different, there has to be at least one source of inspiration for everyone. I get the majority of mine from blogs, which led me to create one of my own: The City Closet. I love how blogger style’s aren’t “made-up” and are more like street style and what they wear day-to-day to class, or just to get coffee.
The topic of inspiration goes along perfectly with the project I just finished for my fabric styling class. (I’ve talked about the project before it was to choose a celebrity, most likely one that inspires your style and create a few boards: a color board, style board, and celebrity profile board.) I chose Alexa Chung, who is my all time favorite celebrity style inspiration. Alexa uses menswear style inspiration, but still manages to keep a feminine silhouette. For my project I still wanted to keep her style but wanted to “push the bar” just a bit. Alexa rarely incorporates grunge into her looks so I made sure to incorporate more grunge in my boards but still keeping her feminine yet masculine style.
