In a perfect world, I would be able to raid every one of these stylish ladies closets whenever I need to switch up my look. Yes, I’m a blogger and I absolutely have my own style, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get inspired by other people! Style should be personal, but there are also elements that we can pull from people and make our own. Seeing how people put pieces together can help us try new trends and push ourselves out of our (style) comfort zones.
I love following these Instagrammers for daily inspiration. Each blogger listed below creates looks that are approachable, but always chic (and sometimes a little edgy).
I love Emma’s style for everyday. There’s something about the way that UK bloggers put together their looks that’s very smart, and I like how Emma plays with trends but her looks are always age appropriate and doesn’t look like she’s trying too hard (she’s in her 30s too). Her YouTube channel is amazing as well.
Danielle is the edgy yet chic trendsetter. She layers necklaces like a pro, and she makes more editorial pieces appropriate for day. When me and Delaini (one of the girls I work with at the boutique) are trying to figure out a look for something at the store or a shoot, we always ask each other WWDW (What Would Danielle Wear), lol.
I love, love, love how Monroe plays with colors and textures, and that she doesn’t save her more statement-y pieces for special occasions-she wears them regularly. There’s a touch of global eclecticism to her style, and is actually one of the inspirations for me to start wearing more statement jewelry.
Chelsea is adorable, and I like that there’s an underlining playfullness to her style. She can go super chic or girlie, but sometimes she’ll toss on a pair of kicks with a maxi dress and it just works. You can tell she has a lot of fun with her style.
Hunter has the cutest Southern meets boho style. She’s a Nashville girl (and super sweet; I met her during MFW this year) so you see the influence, but she wears the cutest little sets and accessorizes so well that it keeps her from looking too sweet. If you want to add a touch of southern boheme to your look, her style is a good place to start.
Kamara wears a suit and monochromatic looks unlike anyone else. Sometimes she’s a minimalist and only accessorizes with a statement earring and a bold red lip, but sometimes she’ll pull out a wildcard and be very metropolitan. Whichever look she does works and you want to copy it. And don’t eeeeeven get me started on her hair. Love!
If I had to pack for a trip to Europe, I would simply pack up Carlina’s entire closet. She wears the sweetest little print dresses, and there’s a simplicity to her beauty + accessories (sunnies, hoop earrings, and groomed brows w/a slightly bold lip), that makes her style perfect for laidback getaways.
Jacey’s style is what I consider elevated approachability. Many of the pieces probably already exist in our closets, however, my black sweater may be from Target while hers is from Gucci, lol. But don’t get it twisted-she does mix in some WhoWhatWear pieces with her higher end finds, so instead of being jealous, it just inspires me to try to recreate.
Confession: Q is a client, BUT shooting with her every week over the last few years has made me realize all of the essentials that I’m STILL missing from my closet (and I have a LOT of clothes, lol). Q shops everywhere and a lot of times she find simple pieces with unique details that make them feel special, which is why I love her style.
I follow so many more accounts, but these are some of my absolute favorite style mavens. When I look for outfit inspiration, I ultimately look for women who’s style helps me to refine mines. I like to look at more fantastical, editorial looks for sure, but these are the style stars that move me to go out to shop and try a look and that, my dears, is real influence.
