My top 5 style icons

Today I’m talking about my top 5 style icons! ♡

OLIVIA PALERMO

I’m obsessed with her. She’s so classy, has a handsome husband and a cute fluffy Maltese dog called Mr. Butler. If I could be someone else, I would be her for sure!

What I like about her style and I take inspiration from:

  • She often wears flats\ballerinas instead of sneakers and this makes an outfit look more put together;
  • Her husband, model Johannes Huebl, every Sunday posts a photo of them together and most of the times she has sunglasses on and loungewear. That’s a nice trick for when you have a bare face;
  • Olivia masters the art of mixing designer clothes with cheap pieces. You don’t need to spend 80€ in a white cotton t-shirt!

LIZZY HADFIELD | SHOT FROM THE STREET

I discovered her one year ago on Pinterest (I was looking for pictures of the Céline Belt Bag) and I remember watching all the videos on her YouTube channel because she is so sweet and her style is so relatable: denim jeans, plain t-shirts, and turtlenecks. Yeah, me basically.

What I like about her style and I take inspiration from:

  • She tucks in all the t-shirts;
  • Turtlenecks will save your from wearing a big chunky scarf that ruins your outfit;
  • She usually invests in good quality shoes and bags.

PAOLA ALBERDI | BLANK ITINERARY

I found her while I was looking for pictures of another bag I like, the Prada Astrology Cahier. She’s nine months pregnant so she wears maternity clothes btw.

What I like about her style and I take inspiration from:

  • If in doubt, wear Ray-Ban! Most of the times she has the Ray-Ban 3447 (aka the rounded model) on;
  • Go for statement bags: colorful of with patterns.

LUCY WILLIAMS | FASHION ME NOW

The queen. I featured her in my FAQ, because of her effortless-chic-editorial style.

What I like about her style and I take inspiration from:

  • She always wears gold jewelry and layered necklaces. Lucy has done a collaboration with Missoma and my favorite piece is the Mini Fang Necklace, that I finally bought and I’m waiting for it to arrive;
  • She tucks in all the t-shirts;
  • White, black and denim are a staple in her wardrobe.

FELICIA AKERSTROM MA | AKERSTROMS

As you can imagine from her surname, she’s from Sweden but lives in New York. She’s tall, skinny, has long Pocahontas hair and quite a lof of money. Oh and she is 24 years old, so we almost have the same age. “Don’t compare yourself with others” they say uh.

What I like about her style and I take inspiration from:

  • In summer she wears a lot of frilly dresses and knotted shirts;
  • White or cream tops are always a good idea.

// Oggi vi parlerò di cinque blogger che seguo e da cui prendo ispirazione, sperando vi sia utile! ♡

OLIVIA PALERMO

Sono ossessionata da lei. Tutto quello che fa sprigiona classe, ha un marito stra fico e un maltese chiamato Mr. Butler. Se potessi essere qualcun altro, vorrei essere lei!

Cosa mi piace del suo stile, da cui prendo ispirazione:

  • Indossa spesso le ballerine al posto delle sneakers e questo rende più eleganti anche gli outfit semplici;
  • Ogni domenica suo marito, il modello Johannes Huebl, pubblica su Instagram una foto di loro due insieme, dove Olivia è spesso vestita in modo casual e indossa un paio di occhiali vistosi. Ecco cosa fare se volete nascondere un viso struccato;
  • Abbina capi designer ad altri più economici con grande maestria.

LIZZY HADFIELD | SHOT FROM THE STREET

L’ho scoperta un anno fa su Pinterest, mentre cercavo delle foto della Céline Belt Bag, e mi ricordo di aver fatto una maratona dei suoi video su YouTube, perché mi identificavo un sacco nel suo stile: pullover a collo alto e jeans.

Cosa mi piace del suo stile, da cui prendo ispirazione:

  • Infila le magliette dentro ai jeans o ai pantaloni;
  • Con pullover a collo alto evita di portare sciarpe giganti, che rovinano l’outfit;
  • Investe in scarpe e borse di buona qualità.

PAOLA ALBERDI | BLANK ITINERARY

Ho scoperto anche lei mentre cercavo delle foto di una borsa su Pinterest, l’Astrology Cahier di Prada. È al nono mese di gravidanza per cui la maggior parte degli outfit non sono replicabili.

Cosa mi piace del suo stile, da cui prendo ispirazione:

  • Nel dubbio, indossa dei Rayban, meglio se il modello 3447 (quello con le lenti arrotondate per intederci);
  • Le borse sono meglio se colorate o con una fantasia vistosa.

LUCY WILLIAMS | FASHION ME NOW

L’ho nominata anche nelle mie FAQ, per il suo stile effortless-chic-editorial.

Cosa mi piace del suo stile, da cui prendo ispirazione:

  • Indossa sempre gioielli dorati e più collane alla volta. Ha collaborato con Missoma London e il mio pezzo preferito è la collana Mini Fang, che ho ordinato e sto aspettando che arrivi;
  • Infila sempre le magliette nei jeans o pantaloni.

FELICIA AKERSTROM MA | AKERSTROMS BLOG

Come potrete immaginare dal cognome, è svedese ma vive a New York. È alta, magra, ha i capelli come Pocahontas e un sacco di soldi. Ah, e ha 24 anni, praticamente la mia età. “Non paragonare  te stesso agli altri”, dicono eh.

Cosa mi piace del suo stile, da cui prendo ispirazione:

  • In estate indossa vestiti svolazzanti e camicie annodate;
  • Top bianchi o crema sono sempre una buona idea.
