In New York, it is easy to get inspired by all the street fashion around me. It seems that everywhere I look people are wearing some of the latest trends in the most innovative ways possible. My idea of street style, however, is incorporating elements I truly love with the latest fashions out there to create a more personalized look.
I believe that there is nothing interesting in just copying a magazine or a store look from head to toe; anyone can do it , plus it can look utterly boring and predictable. Placing our own touch on every ensamble allows us to display our personality. Personally, I am a big fan of boho chic and am likely to wear my hats and boots on every day basis.
Below are some great tips from celebrities on how to personalize your style:
- Ralph Lauren: "Breaking rules is what makes clothes interesting. I love mixing fabrics and shapes in unexpected ways - classic with modern, rugged with elegant."
- John Galliano: "Glamour today is confidence, independence, not giving a damn, going for it and indulging your desires - in fashion, life and living."
- Donatella Versace: "The most valuable item in your wardrobe is not a piece of clothing; it is an accessory. With a quick switch of a handbag or a pair of shoes, you can instantly change your look and mood."
- Heidi Klum: "Wear something you feel gorgeous in and don't try too hard; it's much sexier when it appears effortless. Clothes that don't fit, or don't fit the wearer's personality, don't help."
- Giorgio Armani: "Elegance is the result of a natural equilibrium between simplicity, looking after oneself and intelligence. All this generates the attitude we call elegance. It is a quality which, contrary to popular belief, does not require deep pockets."
- Elle Macpherson: "Find a personal style by not following trends. I have worn jeans, a white T-shirt, a cashmere jumper and knee-high, cowboy or motorcycle boots, or ballet flats for 25 years. The shape of the jeans changes and that's about it. There is something disquieting about clothing schizophrenia."
- Zac Posen: "Dress to make an entrance the same way you dress to make an exit: with aplomb, shoulders back and a withheld secret."
