STYLE ICONS



Net-A-Porter Bow blouse / Chanel Vintage bag / J.Crew boyfriend jeans / Net-A-Porter coat / Coach iPad folio / Nars foundation / Jerry Sartarama pencils / Zara studded oxfords / Fleur of England bra / Rebekka Ferbrache flower vase

How to be an It Girl? For all us fashion aficionados, it's safe to say we crave the sartorial slice of the style icon life starring oh-so casual front seats to legendary Chanel and nonchalant brunches with the Prada-wearing Devil herself (Anna Wintour, that is). We've all tried to decode this cryptic, billion-dollar question--especially after maniacally gluing our starry eyes on every centimeter cube of Alexa Chung's It Girl book (the cube cut-out of Chung's sea-water azure eyes plastered on her cover may as well be blatantly taunting us of her clandestine secret). 

Question: How exactly do we get one step closer to our dreams clad in studded Valentino slingbacks? 
Answer: Religiously jot down her godsend style moments and attempt to rouse your inner Nicolas Cage National Treasure hunter sans baldness, of course.

A mouth-dropping blush lace bra here and a Hailee Seinfeld inspired crisp pilgrim blouse there and there's already a charming concoction of that covetable Chung charisma. Hungry for more? Feed your inner style stalker and take some style cues from the Man Repeller by stepping into bombshell oxfords with a sprinkling of silver studs. After all, an It Girl is never a one trick pony. So, why not appeal to a kaleidoscope of genres from cotillion pastel princess to blazer-wearing/ menswear-inspired vagabond? But you probably already know that. 

New Look kimono / Etsy shorts / The Row sunglasses / Vic Matie wedges / Local Heroes case / Erin Wasson necklaces / Free People bra / Steve by Steve Madden bag / BCBGMaxAzria hat / Debenhams floral headbands / Sole Society rings

 In the wise words of cardigan-wearing geek Gabriella Montez "Everybody loves High School Musical, who says we have to let it go?". But in this case, we'll have to forget about her sugarcoated Disney days featuring unanticipated bursts of solo dancing around an empty school hallway. And instead of being caught wearing her then-co star/boyfriend Zac Efron's oversized plum flannel, she's traded in her arm candy and ensembles for Austin Butler & his hand-me-downs (Carrie Diaries, anyone?).

How to achieve Vanessa's California music festival raging look?

Step one: DON'T skimp out on florals. 
Remember that beginning scene in Alice in Wonderland where Alice is cozily snuggling against the plush flowers? Snag that scene and bottle it up in your memory because you'll be reopening it for some generous doses of inspiration for the Coachella look. A cream crop barely-there top will keep you sober from the endless sweating under the unforgiving weather (that's the only time you'll hear "sober" there). 

You'll definitely be nodding to the splashes of dainty flowers on your fresh crop top. After all, spring showers bring you flowers! Oh, and we can't forget the famed flower crowns that are second nature to festival fever. A classic fringe nutmeg crossbody and a scorching, splotched tangerine tank with fringe dripping down the front and you'll be the dancing queen on the grass fields. Top it all off in your over-sized, floppy hat scalloped in crochet patterns. Last words of advice: don't forget to shield your sensitive eyes with a pair of stylish sunnies that'll make John Lennon salute to you!



Love Leather top / Pacsun beanie / YSL lipstick / Dr Martens boots / Chictastic bracelet / Song Leather jacket / Sarah Haghili shorts / New Look rings / Tokyo Milk Handcreme

What's Miley's signature? Blatant wagging tongues similar to that of German Shepherds in the summer and cringe-worthy, wedgie-inducing leotards (best left for Gabby Douglass). If Miley Cyrus instantaneously popped into your head you deserve to dance with a Smurf blue life size teddy bear from her Bangerz Tour (definitely not the one from your childhood). No one's in the dark when it comes to Miley Cyrus and her latest shenanigans we're bound to unearth on Perez Hilton or just from Twitter alone. (I'm surprised I even know given the fact that I don't have a Facebook) But, besides her legendary chicken-cutlet looking bottom from her Robin Thicke dance and her dramatic Bangerz tour entry riding a colossal hot dog, she knows how to have a good hammer-licking time. Sorry, I just had to insert that in somehow.

I applaud her for her blunt yet refreshingly self-assured outlook, controversy and all. It takes a golden spine to stand tall--in skyscraper heels--and not wilt under nasty hater comments and shamefully resort to a Malibu rehab. In a world of increasing bullying and heart-wrenching discrimination, she has a strong backbone and isn't afraid of her wild child personality which I actually respect.

Enough of my sappy ABC Family-esque notes (which I've been religiously addicted to). If your style is more reflective of Molly's Miley's killer personality, think tough-girl vegan leather jackets and mesh crops that will ensure your over-exposed skin to breathe and soak in some of that California sun. Dash in some gold glimmers through your accoutrements consisting of heavy layered ring candy (so delish) and chain chokers. To finish it all off, step out in classically grunge Doc Martens reminiscent of The Rolling Stones and you've got yourself a platinum studio record deal--in fashion, that is.

  61. Wow, amazing post with great advice and wonderful style inspirations! I adore Alexa Chung's geek chic preppy style (I bought a pair of python print oxford shoes from Topshop recently and can't wait to wear them soon) and Vanessa Hudgens is queen of the boho chic look-- something to be learnt from both ladies for sure! Miley also bring a very rocker sexy vibe that would be cool to emulate every once in a while :)
