Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief, Anna Wintour, stated briefly at NYFW 2015 that “Fashion today is so much more about individuality and [about] reflecting on [a] woman’s character than trends. Trends to me is a dirty word.”
I couldn’t agree with her more – fashion is not about what’s “in” and “out” but an embodiment of who you are. One of the great things about growing up is being able to define your own sense of style through experiences and influences.
My taste in fashion didn’t just come out of nowhere — I was influenced by designers like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who created the lines The Row and Elizabeth and James. These ladies are well-known for their over-sized wardrobe, adding a twist of masculine and feminine features to fit the modern-day look.
Nowadays I’ve been going posh. See what I did there? What’s so great about Victoria Beckham’s style is that she uses simple, clean-cut pieces that create an effortless, bold effect. It’s as if she didn’t have to try to get ready!
Not only do I admire a lot of these designers out there, but I also follow a community of fashion bloggers as well. Here are some of the fashionistas that I’ve been inspired by lately:
- Damsel in Dior, Jacey Duprie
- Park & Cube, Shini Park
- Walk In Wonderland, Sheryl Luke
- Figtny, Lee Parrino
- Couple Duo: Just Another, Lisa Dengler & One Dapper Street, Marcel Floruss
As you can see, these are just some of my style influencers. Today, this is where my fashion sense have taken me, and it will only continue to evolve as I age. However, I doubt that I’d be wearing pink anytime soon…
Remember, as Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
