So I’m starting this new series of posts which puts a spotlight on some of my fashion inspirations. There’s a plethora of celebs who have amazing style so I’d like to highlight some of their pieces and what’s so good about them.
So my first is Gigi Hadid! We all know she has some of the coolest style on the street today and everybody and their mother’s wants to be like her. Plus, her style is very easy to recreate which puts us ordinary folk at an advantage. While making my daily rounds on Tumblr or Instagram, I always see new posts about her and her street style so I’m always finding myself purchasing similar shoes or jeans. (oops!)
What I love about Gigi’s style is that she mixes high fashion items with inexpensive, fast fashion pieces. The mix and match effect creates a cool dynamic that really adds to the charm of her style, which I have come to appreciate. She is always sporting basic shirts and a nice pair of jeans with a statement bag, jacket or shoes, as you can see with her snakeskin boots up top or the studded leather jacket. (To die for by the way!) Also, the blue leather jacket is so smart because it speaks for the whole outfit. The outfit itself is basic, but the jacket gives it a pop of color and a bit of edginess that ties it all together. It can be worn on a day out with friends or even a low key date, so the versatility of it is awesome, just like all of her outfits.
So 2015 is already over and I can’t believe it. This by far has been one of the coolest years in fashion and I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store. Now as you can see from the pictures, turtlenecks have been my absolute favorite pieces from this year and they better be just as popular in the new year. A turtleneck is timeless and can be styled in so many different ways, from a chunky knit to under a leather jacket or coat. It is the one piece that can be worn to be extremely comfortable or extremely chic, which is why it’s at the top of my list. So in the upcoming year, make sure you all go out and buy one for your wardrobe and rock it which ever way you wish.
Visiting Jack’s Wife Freda for the second time, I was still impressed and overwhelmed in the best ways. The Soho based restaurant on Lafayette Street is probably one of the coziest and homey places that still manages to make me feel like I’m at a family dinner with fifty family members. The small space and crowded tables make it that much more appealing and home-like. The rectangular room holds about 50 people who are all enjoying their various selection of breakfast, brunch and lunch. (My favorite is the Mediterranean breakfast) The overall ambience and aesthetic resonates the comfortable, city feel so many people love. There isn’t a day this place isn’t crowded, and all for good reasons. (Even on a random Wednesday)
We’re well into December and I still can’t believe it. This is the best time to bring out the coats we all love so much, so that’s just what I did. This season, coats are so popular. They always have been but somehow this season they have multiplied. Coats are one of the most chic items a person can have in their wardrobe. They are casual but classy which really is conveyed through a person’s outfit. Even better, a coat can be thrown over anything and it will automatically look chic; take the newfound sweats trend for example. ( Sweatpants, a coat, and sneakers: brilliant.) In my opinion, a structured winter coat can spice up any outfit and tie any loose pieces together creating a cozy but stylish look for the colder months.
