Dear Fellow Fashionista,
Let me say this louder for the people in the back. Shop your own damn closet! Especially during these uncertain times, when I think everybody is doing a little bit of belt tightening, it is so important to find new and innovative ways to wear pieces you already own. I have recently found a lot of joy in doing this. Sort of in an outfit mixologist kind of way. A little bit of this, splash of color, dash of denim, hint of neutrals and I’ve masterfully concocted something exciting to wear for the day.
One of the biggest sources of inspiration for me these days? Googling celebrity street style. There are bazillions of paparazzi photos out there of celebrities wearing casual yet chic outfits while out to lunch, getting a coffee, heading to a meeting…you know stuff us normal folks also do on a daily basis. And the best part is that I bet my bottom dollar that if you put your thinking cap on and ponder hard enough, you can recreate some of your favorite looks from the items hanging in your closet right now. No purchase necessary.
That’s exactly what I did with the above two looks. When the news broke of Gigi’s pregnancy, and my Google history already flooded with pinned street style inspo, I decided to type in her name and see what I could conjure up. These two looks are quintessentially Gigi. Effortlessly chic and down to earth, just as I’ve read she is in real life. After a few quick swipes in my wardrobe, I found pieces that were almost identical. I even pulled the pieces and some similar options for you to see exactly what I used to come up with these replicas.
Look 1: Green with envy
Look 2: Band Tees Rock
As I’m vulnerably posting my recreations, I couldn’t help but wonder…are there any celebrity looks you’d like to remake with your own closet staples? If so, I challenge you to take the plunge, snap a photo and tag me using #SincerelyStyling. I can’t wait to see what you mix up!
