If there is anybody who knows about fashion, it’s Victoria Beckham. This brilliant fashion mogul has been killing the fashion game for as long as we can remember, specifically after Spice Girls. She is the epitome of chic and fashionable, which is probably why she is so famous in the world of fashion. She has created an empire with her clothing line which soon contributed and sprouted her heavy influence in charities.
Victoria knows exactly how to put an outfit together from top to bottom, even if she has some risky pieces, she rocks it. Even her kids are relevant in the fashion world, with her younger son being the face of Burberry. Freaking Burberry! Her fashion sense has definitely rubbed off on her family and millions of people, so now I’m hoping some of it will continue to rub off on me.
Let’s think back to a time when denim wasn’t the dominating fabric in American culture. It’s pretty hard to pinpoint a time simply because it was popular from the get go. Back in 1873, denim was created in San Fransisco by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss. During the Gold Rush, at the same time Davis and Strauss were working, miners needed heavy duty pants to resist hard work. From this denim jeans were created. Now for a while jeans were only worn by workers, however as the 50’s rolled along and teens learned what rock and roll meant, jeans were worn by all. During this time specifically, James Dean and other actors universalized jeans. They became a trademark piece for all the bad boys and greasers at the time, but men were not the only ones sporting this new trend. Marilyn Monroe revolutionized style for women when she wore jeans in her films as well. Denim quickly crept its way up the trend pole in America and has yet to leave.
Sundays are for brunch and bombers. At least I think they are. The perfect way to spend a Sunday is waking up, drinking some lemon water and getting ready for the best meal of the day. This time I was a bit risky stepping out in this bomber, but you do it for the blog, am I right?
Bombers have very well become my second skin these past few months because they are so versatile and comfortable! They work for so many different occasions whether I’m hanging out with friends or going out at night. The best place to get bombers is at thrift shops because there are so many old vintage pieces you could find (even though mine is from H&M, but it was $6!) You are bound to find some insane pieces there.
Thinking about when to wear them? Bombers are perfect for the transition between winter and spring (and if you know me, even summer) so I suggest you snatch one up quick!
We are crossing the pond today with this celebrity spotlight and focusing all of our attention on Emma Watson. (or Hermoine, for all you die hard Harry Potter fans) When I think of Emma Watson I think of class, because she is probably the classiest woman out there. You can see it in the way she speaks, but also in the way she dresses. She is effortless and chic where ever she finds herself.
Take this outfit for example. It is the simplest thing, yet she pulls it off so well with her accessories and hair. She knows how to make an outfit cohesive with even the simplest pieces (considering this outfit is only two items).
She has also nailed the monochromatic look as you can see in these pictures. She has a naturally put together and chic look that compliments her outfits unbelievably. (I wish i could look that good sprinting to the store in my overalls)
I’ve been a personal fan of Selena Gomez since Wizards of Waverly Place. Anyone else? I loved her, but I specifically loved her fashion choices. Starting off she was a bit of a tomboy, which I loved because she embodied my style as a thirteen year old, but as she grew up so did her fashion.
As most can see from the copious amounts of pictures of her leaving an airport or picking up some food, she loves monochromatic and basic pieces that she tends to put her own twist on. She ranges from jeans, a t-shirt and heels to a cute dress and booties, which makes it that much more interesting when new pictures surface.
Another thing I love is her effortlessness. Everything she wears looks like she put A LOT of effort into it, but probably thought about it an hour before walking out the door. Nonetheless, I would kill to have her wardrobe and pull off half of the things she does, so hats off to you Selena.
