In this life, there are those of us who can and those of us who cannot.
Some women have a natural flare for style and fashion; the rest of us stand in front of our closet and wonder why we have nothing to wear.
Here’s some good advice:
If you are fashionably challenged, find someone to be your fashion inspiration and emulate them.
Blogs are filled with fashion inspiration. Ever hear of What I Wore Wednesday? Hundreds of real women with real shapes and sizes link up to show off what they wore that week. Many of them shop at stores you and I can afford – Target, Old Navy, Kohl’s, thrift shops.
If you don’t know what to wear, take some inspiration from a woman whose style you admire.
Lisa Leonard always looks chic and effortless. I love her style and admire how she mixes color, patterns, and even thrifty pieces of clothing. When I saw her outfit photo this past week, I knew I could remake it with items in my own closet.
I used Lisa’s photo with permission. You can see more photos of her outfit on her blog.
The bones of this outfit are printed pants, a solid shirt, denim jacket, and a scarf in a completely different print.
I don’t have any pretty winter shoes, so I opted for boots in my outfit, but the bones are the same.
Pants: Kohl’s ($8 clearance), Boots: Target (last year), Long-sleeve T-shirt: Hand-Me-Down, Denim Jacket: Thrifted, Scarf: Kohl’s.
So the next time you think you have nothing to wear, remember to find some inspiration from friends, family, or bloggers who know how to dress well, and then imitate them. I’m pretty sure they won’t mind a bit.
Who is your fashion role model?
