Celebrity Style Steal – One Direction

One Direction are undeniably the hottest boy band on the planet at the moment, not only are they cute, can sing but they dress so damn well! So I thought for my first ever style steal why not steal theirs!

GUYS TAKE NOTE! Girls love guys who can dress well, Even if you loathe 1D if you take a look at their threads, they wear some classic pieces which suit all ages.

and girls…. if your brother or partner needs to inject a little style these pieces are not only great basics but at very reasonable prices too.

Now… down to business!

The boys from One Direction weren’t always so perfectly styled, before they hit the big time as we can see here.

But once they became the superstars they are today their image became more important. Generally first impressions are made by your appearance, especially for job interviews, first dates, parties and other important events you need to dress like the impression you want to make.

As we can see in the next image how much more refined their image became and their own personal style defined, for example Harry Styles wears lots of coats and blazers, Niall wears plain tees or polo’s and Louis wears button up shirts, stripes or coloured jeans.

Now for a little Analysis:

While they all each have their own individual style collectively they have a smart preppy style which widely appeals to people (probably part of why they are so popular with the ladies!). The 1D boys also primarily wear blues, reds, white, beige, grey and greens which are all very youthful boyish colors. simple patterns such as plaid and stripes are only used apart from that they wear plain items of clothing e.g. no slogan tees. accessories are also minimal, only scarfs, sunglasses and suspenders are occasionally worn instead layering of their shirts and jackets is common style for them.

Can I hear you asking where can I buy this some of these cool pieces and add some prep into my life?

here is my first Celebrity Style Steal Page!

So that’s the end of my first Celebrity Style Steal! Which Celebrity should I cover next week guys? Let me know with a comment! xox

7 Great Books Any Fashionista Should Read

Already love fashion but want some cool new reads? or looking to get into fashion? maybe want to update your fashion knowledge? here are my lucky top 7 awesome books for any fashionista to read 🙂Imagelets start from the top…

1 Vogue Magazine

Okay so it isn’t exactly a book but it is the fashion bible. Pretty obvious I know but it is a great place to start to get ideas on trends, info on designers and the latest from the catwalks and fashion weeks. Any other fashion based magazines are also awesome but if I was going to pick a go too mag it’s Vogue.

2 The Teen Vogue Handbook

This book provides lots that many others do not and that is insider information on all different fashion related careers from the people who got to the top of their game themselves. Even if you aren’t looking for a career in fashion it’s really interesting to see the journey theses fashion superstars took to get where they are today. It includes interviews, job descriptions, and things used in day to day life on the job.

3 Fashionary

This one isn’t exactly a book either but more like a fashion diary. Fashionary features lightly drawn croquis (fashion figures) to jot your designs down on. This is great for an aspiring fashion designer, illustrator, student or stylist. it also comes with garment and top designer info.

4 Style Me Vintage

Perfect if you love vintage fashion, hair or makeup as it has tutorials and info on them all!  great for any gal who’s exploring her ‘new look’ or wants to learn how to nail vintage style. This book has step by step instructions detailed with pictures so anyone can go vintage glam from the roaring 20’s to the power shoulders of the 80’s.

5 Ultimate Fashionista  The Young Hollywood Style Guide

As the title of the book says its for the ultimate fashionista! This book has chapters on the top thirty under thirty most watched stars for style, celebrity labels, fashion on TV and movies in the different decades and themes, influential people, icons… it covers lots of different fun bases.

6 Minxy Vintage

Another vintage book 🙂 This book has a different take from Style Me Vintage and shows you how to find vintage pieces and translate them into something more modern for today or return them to their former glory. This book has great tips on finding genuine vintage fashions and taking care of them. Especially recommended to vintage loving girls.

 7 FASHION 150 Years

This book is very heavy, so heavy I decided to weigh it. How heavy? *drum roll* please…. 3.1kg!! it features stunning photographs of fashion then and now and provides a detailed history on key designers in the past century. A must read to get knowledgeable in fashion history, How fashion has evolved and how designers made their mark in history.

Pretty In Picnic

it’s a short photo/ style story I’m really proud of it :). I wanted to create something which had a vintage feel and captures a first date or outing with friends to the park.
I used
a canon eos 600D to photograph the pictures
my own wardrobe  and jewelry XD
Photoshop cs5 to edit the photos

Location was at Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens.

I hope you enjoy this mini photo style story as much as I did creating it! xox

I could ramble on about my self for an introduction but I thought for something a little different for any future followers to get to know me I will do a 30 day photo challenge instead (may or may not be also because I’m learning how to use my new Canon eos 600D too eep!)

I found this photo challenge on Google images, I wish I could credit the creator of this challenge, I’ll research it 🙂Image
