Does cruising the internet leave you lusting for your favorite bloggers’ closets? We’ll let you in on a little secret — you can get their looks with just a few style tricks. Follow these easy tips to make you look like the next style star.
1. Top it Off
Sometimes all you need is a little something to pull it all together. Enter the best friend of our favorite bloggers — the accessory. It doesn’t matter if you’re going for a visor (now trending in Milan!) or a pair of sunnies. Even a simple necklace will do, as long as you make sure to add that final touch to seal your look. Warning: taking this advice may result in a mega-purse collection.
2. Be Bold
Feel free to mix prints; a sailor-stripe shirt with a floral skirt will make a statement and help your outfit standout. Fashion bloggers aren’t afraid of being bold, so you shouldn’t be either.
3. Stay Fresh
Bloggers are masters of balance — even if they’re being bold, they tend to let their clothes speak for themselves by keeping their makeup clean and simple. Aim for a ‘no makeup’ makeup look with some lengthening mascara and rosy blush. Don’t forget to give your nails the attention they deserve, a completely clean presentation is key.
4. Try a Pointy Toe Shoe
This edgy style will mix ladylike pristine into your outfit. The shape will elongate your leg, without any need for heels. Or, if you want to take it to up a notch, try a heeled, pointy shoe to get the best of both worlds.
5. Roll Sleeves for Casual Cool
Simply cuffing a long-sleeved button up can revamp an outfit without having to make a major change. Slip another long sleeve layer underneath to add a bit of flare to the mix and get double duty out of your closet. Or, keep it simple and roll sleeves up without anything underneath — 2 minutes tops to appear effortlessly stylish!
6. Experiment with New Shapes
Fashion bloggers set trends, they don’t just follow them. These well-dressed crème de la crème get to travel the world and see what’s out there. They’re not afraid to try a harem pant or a new skort hybrid, sometimes showing a little skin, sometimes covering up with a head scarf. Whatever strikes your fancy, try it!
7. Knot a Maxi Skirt
We all love maxi skirts, but sometimes they can be a bit demanding to wear everyday, grazing the floor or getting stuck every which way. Try a maxi skirt update by knotting the bottom to shorten the skirt. You’ve seen this trick before; think: knotted-shirt, but this time on bottom.
8. Drape a Sweater/Jacket 90′s Style
You can pretend you have your very own stylist when you follow this tip. Try a flannel or jean jacket draped around your waist to update any look! This stylish 90′s staple is another layer of cool, think of it as your new favorite accessory. Bonus? You have something ready for when you get chilly.
9. Grab a Pair of Reworked Birkenstocks
The Birkenstock trend is coming back stronger than ever. This season, we’re seeing the fashionably ugly flat on an array of bloggers. Try a black or metallic pair, we promise they even work for a night out!
10. Oversized is Everything
A classic move on the part of the fashion blogger? Throw in something oversized. Flowy and cute, or minimal and long, it doesn’t matter how you want to play it, you’ll look on point. Only the trendiest dare to try oversized, so make sure you’re one of them.
