I follow many fashion bloggers online and while there are many who have unique style, I find a lot of them very similar. I’m not claiming to be totally different from everyone because after all, I shop on the high street which is designed for the masses.
However, I have noticed that there is a certain kind of look which several bloggers (not all) tend to go for. It’s either a neutral/monochrome aesthetic or the sexy “Instagram model” look. And what I mean by that is tight, revealing and typically glamorous. Both the looks are gorgeous but they dominate the blogging world.
Now, I don’t particularly mind either but at the same time, I don’t really relate to them. Neutrals and monochrome outfits are striking and effortless but sometimes I just need some colour in my life. A touch of print, sequins, anything!
While the “Instagram model” vibe is stunning, I feel that everyone looks identical. And even though I was accustomed to showing some skin in my early twenties, it’s just not me now. I prefer to dress more conservatively. Maybe it’s just me getting older or perhaps my style is growing up.
Lately, I’ve been loving bright colours, prints and combinations which you might not typically put together but somehow they work. Or they do in my mind anyway! It’s been so refreshing to mix things up & have fun with fashion rather than take it too seriously. I mean, shouldn’t it always be that way?!
For example, you don’t see Carrie Bradshaw (SATC), Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl), Elle Woods (Legally Blonde) or Cher Horowitz (Clueless) head to toe in neutrals all the time. And they’re amongst the most stylish and iconic fictional characters ever! They experiment, they break the rules, they have fun! And I aim to do the same, in my own way.
So, I hope you enjoy my outfits as much as I enjoy putting them together. Let me know which looks you love!
