As an antidote to the mid-winter slump, where you start to repeat the same outfits over again while you wait for spring, we’ve chosen four of our favorite bloggers and show you how to achieve their unique looks. Take a few cues, and pair some unexpected pieces, with a little style inspiration from gals who dig deep into their closets every day for new looks:
Who: Jane Aldridge is a Texas high school student who pairs vintage and bargain finds with her mother’s high-end clothes–she’s got a penchant for amazing shoes paired with vintage jewelry, plus a closet filled with designer finds to covet. This year she was featured in Vogue and Vanity Fair, and designed a line of shoes for Urban Outfitters. Did we mention she’s a teenager?
Pair together a fur vest by Juicy Couture ($209), and a drapey asymmetrical skirt like this one by Dondup Quodlibet ($149) to get an unexpectedly cool vibe that’s a mix of fabrics, textures and lengths.
The boots Jane is wearing are wedges, with a slouchy detail and buckles–these boots by Sudini ($40, down from $200) channel the pointed shape of Jane’s slouchier pair, and an enamel giraffe bracelet by Kenneth Jay Lane ($59.98) covers her penchant for vintage animal jewelry.
Who He Is: Scott Schuman, street style photographer travels the world in search of impeccably dressed people. While this obviously isn’t a photo of Scott himself, we couldn’t help but share this girl’s style. Expect statement jewelry, amazing shoes, and perfectly tailored luxury pieces from the subjects he scouts.
Schuman generally photographs people on the street with modern takes on classic looks. Get the look of his street style star above with a closely tailored coat by KORS Michael Kors ($215.99), and knit neck warmer by Accessories Forever ($12.50).
Who She Is: French fashion designer Alix blogs about her whimsical Parisian life and the inspiration for her favorite clothes and accessories. Posting in both French and English, Alix proves her style mignon (cute look) has global appeal.
Who She Is: Rumi Neely represents the West Coast with her laid back California style. The petite blogger models her outfits all over Los Angeles, but this week will likely be making her way through New York’s fashion tents. Almost always opting for black and white basics, Rumi loves short hems, tall shoes, and soft tees.
Channel her cool kid vibe by balancing a dressed down piece, like this white t-shirt dress by Alternative Apparel ($48), with dressier accessories, like these wooden patent leather sandals by Bettye Muller ($198).
