Inspired Fashion

In today’s fashion world it can be hard to know what to wear. Doesn’t it seem like fashion is changing each week, and that everything is in style? Well this might be the case, which makes it that more important to find yourself some inspiration. Finding inspiration can allow you to narrow and focus all the different styles that are out there- helping you to develop and create your own personal style. For some of us fashion comes naturally and for others it is more of a struggle. For those that struggle with fashion, that is perfectly ok, not everyone is good at the same things. I think fashion is a form of creativity, and if you are more of a left brained person then this can be more difficult for you. That is why I think it is important to try and find fashion inspiration that can help you to create your own style!

There are many ways to find fashion inspiration, but I think one of the easiest ways to do this is pick a “celebrity fashion muse.” This is someone you look to for fashion inspiration. You can check out what this celebrity wears, take notes on how they wear different items, what colors look good on them, etc. It’s a way to keep your style current, while you learn about fashion. It’s also a good way to learn what looks good on your body type. It’s not a must but it would be helpful to pick a celebrity that resembles you and your body type. This way if you’re not sure something will look good on you, you can let your “celebrity fashion muse” take the risk first. This way you can observe their results first before trying it yourself.

Why celebrities? These days celebrities have amazing stylists, and are basically a walking fashion advertisement. And because these famous people have professionals dress them they are able to have access to all the latest designer clothes. This is a good way to observe and find out what the latest trends and pieces are before they hit the stores.

All this being said, it is important not to copy your muse exactly. Take what they are wearing and use it as a guide when you go shopping. Always add your own individual twist to the look. It’s no fun to copy someone’s outfit piece for piece: it’s like fashion plagiarism! And remember fashion is a form of self expression. Always feel good in what you are wearing. If you feel good you will exude an air of confidence which is always the most flattering. So be Inspired and not a copycat!
