What is style inspo going to be about?
For my ‘new year, new me’ resolution (which is something I decide to do every year and pretty much fail at), I’ve decided to do a post series called style inspo. The name of this series might change when I think of something catchy!
Female Style Inspo
As a fashionista (or so I like to think), I have a lot of style inspiration in my life. From a young age, I looked up to people like Katharine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn. Katharine was someone I looked up to because we share the same name and the same spelling of Katharine. However, I love how she did the middle finger to expectations of how women should dress.
Audrey Hepburn has been a style inspiration of mine for a long, long time. She had a very classic look and a very simple style. Her style is not incredibly difficult to replicate.
As a blogger, I usually say I’m a fashion blogger. However, there is a slight difference between fashion and style. Fashion is more a follower of trends, whilst style is something that stays for a long time. While there are trends I really love, a lot of my clothes are old. Some of them date back to the 1940s.
Male Style Inspo
I’m also going to look at male influences on my style choices. For example, Harry Styles (ILY Harry) and Freddie Mercury.
Yes, I said Freddie Mercury. Don’t expect me to be wearing skin-tight jumpsuits though. I don’t have any glittery bodysuits in my wardrobe at the moment. There are aspects of his style that I particularly like! Now I am really regretting throwing out my military style coat – I feel like it would have come in handy. And I also took a really cute leather blazer to the op shop recently. I wonder if it is still there. However, I am able to sew, and I have another blazer that I can add on some fun embellishments. I love Freddie because he defied gender norms – he could be both ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ with his style choices.
So, expect the unexpected! I am going to be posting weekly on my style influence. You never know who I might choose. I will also add in how you can recreate these looks on a budget.
I actually feel like this will be a really great challenge – it will make me reevaluate my clothing and it will also make me feel like my clothes are exciting again.
