When you are looking for creative ways to design or style something, I tend to look on the internet or in books. One of my favorite books that I have read over and over is Style by Lauren Conrad. I love this book because it gives you such great insight on fashion. She covers on how to design your wardrobe, how to shop for it and how to design your closet with all of your clothes. I love that she starts with the basics on fashion and builds throughout. She lets you know the basic clothing you’ll need to make multiple outfits. This way you can have a completely different look by spending less money. She recommends on getting a little black dress, jeans, collared button down, skirt, boots, white and black tops, black heels, blazer and a coat. This way you can create summer looks as well as winter looks at a smaller price. Accessories are also important when creating your own style. You want the jewelry basics, necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. You could get many different options. For a necklace I would stick to gold, small gold necklaces look sleek and new. I love the Alex and Ani collection for necklaces. For earrings I would stick with studs that way you don’t take away to much from your necklace and other accessories. From each chapter of this fashion section, you can get some great tips and tricks in order to have a complete new stylish look.
I love the last two chapters of this book as well. She covers traveling and events. Traveling can be such a hassle especially trying to pack. Lauren states strategic packing is a must. How to strategically pack is to minimize your options. Lay out the outfits you want to wear on your trip so that you aren’t just tossing things into your suitcase that you might not end up wearing. She states that you should roll up your clothing so that it is easier for you to fit more into your suitcase. A great way to keep your accessories from getting all mixed up is to put them in a washcloth and store it in a Ziplock bags. Packing is difficult, but if you do it the right way it could be that much simpler!
The last chapter covers events and parties. Dressing for a party can be hard depending on what kind of party it is. Lauren said decoding the invitation is really important to figure out what to wear. From a casual party to a cocktail party to a black tie party, she gives us some options for
Making your style your own is so important. You want yourself to stand out from the crowd. Lauren states that its the little tweaks that make an outfit exceptional. I love this book because it helps with style in so many ways. Learning what basic items I need in my closet to how to pack for a vacation to what to wear to an event. It gives great insight on everything fashion!
