Style and Then Some

9 May 2012

Forget all of those 'Celebrity Get The Look' features, what I'd quite to do is raid some of the wardrobes of the most popular street style subjects.  I've been building up quite a collection of my favourite looks and have noticed a few familiar faces popping up time and time again, whose style I adore.  Each of them works in a particularly creative area of fashion and they seem to create their own trends by wearing whatever they feel comfortable in and looking effortlessly dressed. Unlike bloggers, you only really get a glimpse into their wardrobes during the major fashion weeks and otherwise have to make do with an extended gap after a mass influx of pictures in February and September.  I can't wait until there's some new imagery to feast my eyes on but until then, here's a few of my favourite looks from my favourite three.

I think being the buyer for Opening Ceremony has the be one of the best jobs there is and I can definitely see how Kate Foley's personal style aids her in finding the best designers for the brand.  Socks with sandals and plenty of white dresses make up her signature look and add just the right amount of twisted prettiness that attracts my eye.  I can't wait to see what influence her style has on the stock in the London store opening this summer and I'm counting down the days until it's warm enough to wear socks with sandals again!

Julia Sarr-Jamois makes me exude jealously due to her numerous styling achievements at the tender age of 23 and obviously covetable wardrobe.  Always open to experimentation, I'm impressed with how she embraces prints, colour and texture and stands out with her amazing head of hair.  I've ordered a similar neon lace skirt to the one above and might just have to cheekily copy the styling!

There's far too many pouts for my liking in your average street style blog and I love how Elisa Nalin manages to smile and exude happiness in each photo she poses for.  The bright colour combinations she usually wears must help somewhat and I love how she can expertly put unexpected hues together. I think that seeing her outfits over and over is one of the reasons my colour confidence is growing; life really is too short to blend in.

Have you noticed any street style stars popping up again and again?  There are only a few celebrities whose style I pay attention to (the obvious Alexa Chung springs to mind) and I almost prefer seeing the style of the random fashion week attendees working as stylists, buyers and writers.  I haven't managed to spot any of these inspiring ladies in real life as yet but hopefully my time will come soon enough.

If you're jealous of their outfits then just wait until you see their living spaces.  Elisa and Kate both have homes that reflect their eclectic styles and I hope that one day I will have the same!

  6. I'm a bit obsessed with Julia Sarr-Jamois, she has such incredible style - always stands out for me on street style blogs.

    I haven't seen the other ladies before, but I think they may become new favourites!

    Oh, Such a Primadonna

  7. I L-O-V-E this post! You've chosen such excellent people to focus on. Each of their style is so unique and inspiring in a different way. I love how you've put together this post. I felt like I was reading a little feature in Grazia.

    Love the phrase you used, 'twisted prettiness.' It so true! That's my favorite sort of look - I find outfits (and things in general) the best.

    p.s. I've seen Kate at LFW (I got a detail of the polka dot shoes next to the polka dot dress when she wore them - SO COOL - I didn't know who she was. I also saw Elisa lots at PFW and I'm so happy to say that her positive energy that comes across in photos is exactly how she is in real life. She always looked so positive - like she was bursting with love for life. So awesome that she manages to translate that vibe into the way she dresses so well! xx
