My Style Icons

With one of my 2012 Resolutions being to put more thought into my outfits each day I thought I would do a post about some of my style icons. Now this doesn't mean I want to dress exactly like them but instead take a few ideas from them.

The first one is that band Warpaint, I love their music so much and the fact that they are four girls who play instruments and make great songs which is pretty rare these days in my opinion. I also love how they dress, here's one of my favourite pictures of them.
I love the boots with leggings or shorts look and i've really taken inspiration from them and most days you will find me in high waisted shorts, tights and boots. I think this is a great way to get me out of wearin jeans everyday. Emily Kokal and Theresa Wayman (first two on the left) are my  favourite for when it comes to style. 

I love Emily's (left) hair and I also love when she layers vest tops, I really like this look because it is still casual but looks more put together. She also wears feather earings a lot which I think is a nice touch and I think I might go on a hunt for a nice feather necklace. With Theresa (right) I love in this picture that she is wearing a t-shirt with a body-con skirt which I love! It's feminine but still edgy. I love that it's a boyfriend fit and she has rolled up the sleeves, also the boots add a 'rock chic' sort of feel and finish the whole look off really well.
 What I love about them in this picture is that Theresa (far left) is wearing a skirt with Converse, which II think is a great way to make the outfit seem more casual.Then Stella (far right) is wearing shorts and tights with a shirt but has then put it with a bright blue cardigan to add a pop of colour to the look. They all wear long necklaces which I think is a great way to make an outfit seem more put together and make a plain top look more interesting.

My next icon is Zooey Deschanel, now I know everyone seems to be in love with her at the moment but i've been a fan of her style for a while now.

With the left image I love the shorts with the blouse look, it is casual but still looks smart. The right image is her on stage during a She & Him show, I love that she wears dresses even when looking casual. This is something I would love to do more often because it looks really good but is easy to wear. I also love the pattern of this dress, it's an almost aztec style which has been on trend recently ans would be perfect look for when we get into the warmer months. (500) Days of Summer is also one of my favourite films and I love every outfit she wears in it, also I love her look in her new show New Girl which I have been making mental notes of what she is wearing.

So these are just some inspiration pictures for me to look at when i'm struggle to think of how to put an outfit together and not just go for an easy option of jeans and a hoodie which gets a bit boring after a while. With being at University I wear casual clothes everyday so I think more thought into my outfits will again stop me getting in a rut. I might do future posts of things I find to make creating this looks a bit easier.
