Mod.s.t Fashions Look of The Week: Inspired/Getting the Look
Fashion and style blogs seem to be in great numbers these days. These blogs are often meant to inspire the readers and give helpful hints and tips on where to find the best merchandise. This week’s look is all about being inspired by the fashion of others.
Here are a few tips on how to achieve the looks you see others wearing while maintaining modesty, and style…
- Use items you already have in your closet:
- Don’t try to “copy” the exact look. Instead, go for similar pieces of the same style. For example: If the look you want to mimic features a pink sweater, don’t fret if you don’t have that exact sweater. Try another sweater of a similar style, knit and/or color.
- Pay attention to the overall feel and style of the look:
- If the look you want to mimic is a boho chic type of style, go for pieces in that category.
- Note the prints and colors in the desired look and use pieces you have with the same type of print or colors.
- Some looks may not be modest but can be made modest by simply changing certain pieces:
- Swap skinny jeans for straight leg or boot cut
- A mini skirt can be exchanged for a mid or knee length skirt
- Something low cut can be layered over a tee or exchanged for a crew neck
- Don’t be afraid to add your own style.
- Certain parts of a look may or may not be your style. Substitute these pieces for what suits you.
The look below is an example of recreating a look without using the exact pieces. The blogger is wearing loose fitting jeans, a grey sweater, white fur jacket, brown boots and a grey handbag. I’ve recreated the look using pieces that are similar but not exact. I’ve also added my own style by adding a few more accessories. I hope this week’s tips will help you to modestly recreate your favorite looks.
