Are you getting your fashion inspiration from Influenster these days? If so, you’re not the only one. Many women turn to influencers for guidance on how to wear and embrace fashion-forward trends, as well as spice up everyday outfits. Influencers have become increasingly popular due to their relatability and interesting take on fashion. Previously, celebrities and models were the ones people would look to for style advice, but influencers have offered a refreshing perspective and have shown women of all shapes and sizes that they too can take part in fashion.
Whether you have a favorite influencer you want to dress more like or you want to create an effortlessly chic vibe with all of your outfits, this style guide will put you on the right track to becoming your very own fashionista. We will highlight all of the must-have garments and accessories you need to elevate your current wardrobe and create outfits that you’ll remember forever!
Identify Your Staple Wardrobe
While influencers may look like they have a very unique style consisting of statement pieces, most of their outfits are just made up of basic staple pieces with a few statement accents and accessories. With that being said, it’s really important for you to have a staple wardrobe and go-to pieces that are basic, but look chic. The best outfits have a solid foundation, so make sure your closet is stocked with neutral colors and a lot of black.
Speaking of having black pieces in your wardrobe, it’s smart to have an all-black outfit on hand. Monochromatic black outfits always look sharp and expensive, and your favorite influencers love to wear them. If you’re having a low energy day or you aren’t sure what to wear, an all-black ensemble can make you look and feel like a fashionista without having to go the extra mile. All-black ensembles are an influencer staple–not only because they look good on everybody, but because they can be dressed up or down for any occasion. If you’re looking to take your all-black outfits and turn them into an influencer look, top off your outfit with a moto jacket, a designer handbag, a bold pair of sunglasses or a logo brand name belt.
Wide Brim Hats
Whether you’re having a bad hair day or you need a little something extra to elevate your outfit, topping off your look with a wide brim hat is one of the fastest ways to look like your favorite influencer. As a rule of thumb, make sure the color of your hat ties in well with the color scheme of the rest of your outfit. Black, beige and white wide brim dress hats are great to keep in your closet to quickly give any outfit an edge.
Jumpsuits Are a Must
Jumpsuits for women are an influencer favorite because they don’t take a lot of styling or time to put together, but they are ultra-stylish. Whether you’re about to jet set or you need something quick to put on to run errands, you can easily dress a jumpsuit up or down for any occasion. What’s more, there are also so many styles of jumpsuits that could fit any occasion. For example, if you’re on your way to the airport, pair a jersey knit jumpsuit with a pair of sneakers. If you have a night out on the town with your girls, pop off your jumpsuit with a pair of strappy heels and a leather moto jacket.
The Moto Jacket
Speaking of the chicest jacket of our time, every fashionista has a leather moto jacket in their closet. But what separates the influencers from the rest of the pack is the style of moto jacket they usually have. There are a lot of different styles and options out there and it may be hard to find the perfect one. When selecting your go-to moto jacket, find a cropped fit that falls just above your waist. Opt for muted silver hardware and a leather texture that’s soft and dull. You don’t want a jacket that’s too shiny or flashy as it could come off as cheap. Throw your moto jacket over any look to instantly elevate your outfit and achieve a cool girl vibe.
Fall is every fashion blogger’s favorite season simply because of the fashion possibilities. You have probably seen your favorite influencer wearing a pair of knee high faux suede boots during this season. These boots are highly coveted because they instantly elevate and add extra dimension to any outfit. You can pair these boots with jeans or a high-waisted mini skirt and a turtle neck.
The Statement Bag
No look is complete without a sharp statement purse. Whether it’s designer or thrifted, you’ll want a bag that can easily pair well with almost every outfit in your closet, but one that also turns heads. Whether it’s a dainty crossbody or a bold tote, your statement bag should bring your whole look together.
Do you ever put an outfit together and feel like something might be missing? Very often, all your outfit needs is a piece of outerwear like a cardigan, flannel or trench coat. Your favorite influencers and bloggers always keep cozy cardigans or oversized plaid flannels on hand to instantly elevate leggings and a t-shirt or jeans and a sweater. When it comes to flannels, stick to a pattern and color scheme that easily ties into clothes in your closet. For trench coats, find a staple color like beige, black or brown. For a pop of color, keep a couple of bright cardigans on hand.
An Athleisure Set
Athleisure is a huge trend these days, and your favorite influencers are loving to wear their chic gym attire outside of yoga class. If you want to take part in the athleisure trend like your favorite blogger, find a matching workout set that serves as a statement. Whether you go for simplistic colors or you turn to bright neon green, the cohesiveness of a matching set will look special. You can always top your athleisure look off with a leather moto jacket like your bestie bloggers
Do you want to feel like you’re incognito and running through the city streets like some of your favorite influencers hoping they don’t get recognized? Well then, you’ll need a pair of bold sunglasses! Find frames that complement your face and make you feel like a celebrity. You’ll feel like the coolest chick on the block.
Now that you have these style tips, you can go forth confidently knowing that you can pull off any outfit while looking like the ultimate fashionista. We’re sure your favorite influencers would be impressed.
