Lauren Bacall Style Diary – Day 1
Lauren Bacall is one of my favourite style inspirations. She appeared to be confident and created her own look and identity. This Lauren Bacall style diary will have a look at some of my favourite looks and how I recreated them!
For those of you who don’t know, this style diary is going to show looks that I can wear on a daily basis for work or for weekends. I like having outfits I can transfer to night time looks.
If you don’t know who Lauren Bacall is, I highly suggest watching my favourite movie:
The chemistry between Lauren and Humphrey is so obvious.
I will be looking at 2 outfits per post, so I don’t overwhelm you with tonnes of outfits! I will be sharing one workwear and one weekend-wear per post!
Lauren Bacall was well known for her simple style, showcasing white button-up blouses, skirts, and trousers. Her looks are quite easy to replicate, which is one of the reasons why I love her style. It isn’t expensive too, as since her style is so classic, you can find these items at stores like Forever 21 or H&M. Personally, I prefer buying clothes that are ethically made or are not from fast fashion shops, although I do have a few items of clothes from said stores.
In 2015, I used to dress only in vintage style. I would wear only clothes from (or reproduced from) the 40s or 30s. So, I do have a lot of clothes from that time. Nowadays I try to put more of a modern spin on things, however, I am always so tempted to get my seamed tights out or my finger wave clips.
So, here are 2 of my favourite looks for this style diary:
I loved the sleeves in this photo of Bacall, and I had a top with really dramatic sleeves in my wardrobe, so I could easily recreate this look:
The trousers are vintage reproduction from Heyday and the blouse is from Shine On in Whangaparaoa. My sandals are Lotta from Stockholm, which you probably have seen quite a bit on here.
As you can see on Lauren, she has a very crisp, clean style in this photo. This is evident in a lot of photos of her. I like the simplicity in this look!
This next look requires a Humphrey Bogart, which I, unfortunately, don’t have. This is the perfect look – it can be casual or dressed up. I decided to make this brunch casual:
Like I said before, I decided to put a Sunday brunch spin on this outfit, although I do love how Lauren styled her outfit. I could definitely dress this up and make it a workwear outfit too!
The shoes are from Myanmar, the belt is Vintage (it was my Grandmothers), the skirt is from Dancing Days by Banned, the blouse is from Glassons and my bag is from Hong Kong.
Which outfit is your favourite?
I will be publishing the next two looks on Wednesday, so keep your eyes peeled for them!
