Alright, I confess I’ve been known to borrow, alright steal, from mens closets! It all started way back when with an ex-boyfriends flannel shirt and lead to cable sweaters, jackets, chunky watches, jeans, and white button-ups, to name a few (oh yeah, and a rock t-shirt or two)! I guess that why I’m so excited to say menswear inspired fashion is so big for this Fall! Alright, it might remind you of an ex or two but go ahead and get inspired by that well dressed man in your life! Shop your guys closet for an updated look (this statememnt comes with a disclaimer though! ONLY IF HE HAS STYLE!). Think pinstripes, plaids, blazers, oxfords, oversized watches, smoking slippers, tailored trousers, and fedoras, but styled with a chic, feminine twist.
Pastels are so relevant this Spring, if you haven’t already noticed? When incorporating this palette into your wardrobe, use caution. According to Stacy London, it can date you or make you look younger in a not so good way, especially if you’re petite. However, choosing sophisticated pieces, and trying a monochromatic look can make this trend work beautifully! xo-Robin
Looking to celebrity’s to find fashion inspiration is a good thing! Alessandra Ambrosio is best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret model. So let’s face it most of us don’t have her 5’10” perfect body and most of us don’t have her millions! But recreating her bohemian look can easily be done!
The Ella Moss dress she is wearing in this photo costs $224.00 and the Rage and Bone boots cost $495.00. I recreated an entire look from the dress to the sunglasses for $496.00! One dollar more than the boots alone!
So go ahead get inspired and don’t be intimidated!
