Sometimes when you’re in the Monday blues, it takes a model to remind you to keep it fabulous no matter what. Whether you’re getting off a long-haul flight or leaving the gym, it’s never an excuse to look like a slob. Even if you’re not 6 feet tall or ridiculously fit, you can still look super stylish by putting in the slightest bit of effort. The reasons models often look so good is because they wear designer clothes that are created with cuts and fit in mind. Too-loose or too tight looks less than flattering on anyone. Next, wear comfy shoes so you don’t feel like you’re torturing yourself at the alter of fashion. Throw on shades to look great even without makeup and don’t forget a fabulous leather It Bag like this Givenchy Antigonia number in olive green!
In case you missed it, Olivia Palermo tied the knot with her male model boyfriend. This is just one example of how picture perfect this couple is. Although Olivia isn’t a model herself (she is famously petite), she could totally have gone for it if she’s been a little taller. Her face is gorgeous and her style is impeccable. There’s never been a day where Olivia wore something unattractive that made her fans go “Why?!” or “What IS she wearing?” She opts for classic pieces like this coat but mixes it up to keep it from being boring. For example, her coat has short sleeves and a sheer blouse is showing on her arms and around her neckline, adding a hint of romance. Her pants keep it from being dull and the embroidered flats are just another artistic touch to the whole look. Of course, you can’t forget the bag – a soft, dusty pink Christian Dior bag.
So we all know Chanel is one of the most stylish and classic handbag brands in the world. But when it comes in such a minuscule size for baby fashionistas, there is absolutely nothing more cute. This twee-sized bag was gifted by Katy Perry to her niece. Looks like the world famous pop star wants to pass on her good taste to her mini-me because she’s also been spotted carrying the same bag. Isn’t it funny how Katy rose to the top for a hit knowne for being scandalous and risque when her personal style is classic and feminine?
This set of Olivia Wilde photos slipped past us earlier this year. Taken while the actress was still expecting, it shows how great Olivia is at pregnancy style. Even though her baby bump has grown quite big, she still looks fit and petite from the front. It’s only from the side that you can see any hint of a curve. And even though her outfit and clothes are immaculate, somehow she still looks down to earth and comfortable. She really stands out because of the quality of her clothing and the designer cut and fits of the jacket, pants and boots. Her Gucci fringe bag is a throwback to the 70’s, which is interesting because Olivia says that is her favorite fashion era!
Just because Sex and The City is over and so are the movies doesn’t mean SJP is going anywhere. Her role as a fashion icon has been cemented in style history. Olivia Palermo, current fashion It girl, just got married and guess what she wore to her wedding? The same exact blue Manolo Blahniks blue shoes Carrie Bradshaw wore for her wedding to Mr. Big! Not only did they serve as her “something blue”, they were a throwback to SATC and Marie Antoinette, the French queen and one of the biggest fashion It girls of all time. Here, Sarah Jessica is carrying a handbag from the range she’s designed herself, so you know her name will be around in the fashion world for years to come.
Another celebrity street style example of how you can be totally casual and still look absolutely fabulous. Granted, most of the stuff Mena Suvari is wearing is super trendy right now, but without the bag, she’d look a little too anonymous. The Birkinstocks, the Nike workout gear is cute and all, but it’s the bag that reminds you she’s still a star, not just another random blonde on the streets of Los Angeles. The bag is a rich combination of leather and suede that will look beautiful no matter what it’s worn with.
