Snooping online for fashion news, trying to spot the latest trends – that’s what I do. I’m Kristine – -emcBlue’s current fashion editor – and I’m going to share with you what I think makes my personal style.
My style has definitely transitioned through the years, and in ways I’d never expect. Last year, for instance, I chopped all of my hair off into a pixie cut, which, if you’ve never done it before and didn’t know, drastically changes your look.
I had to revamp my entire wardrobe to fit my stronger – “I don’t give a two cents about what anyone thinks” – look. In brief, I start wearing lots of skinny pants, random tees, and cardigans. Before that, however, I was a floral-top addict and not to mention hoarder of high-waist-ed skirts. Now, however, my hair’s grown out, and I’ve been trying this look called “girl who tries to look like an awkward boy” – a description from Alexa Chung, who coined it.
I think one of the best ways to get an idea of anyone’s style is to examine some of their favorite things. If you asked me who my favorite fashion bloggers were, for example, I’d answer “Annabel from BlushingAmbition and Natalie from NatalieOffDuty” – without even thinking. If you asked me who in the fashion industry inspires me the most I’d swiftly reply, “Jenna Lyons” and “Margaret Howell.” Or, if you inquired about who my favorite fashion editors are, I’d immediately tell you, “Amy Odell from the Cut and Eva Chen from Teen Vogue.”
I think if you put all in all together, you’d get a pretty informative picture of what “my style” is.Tags: amy odell, dooney and bourke, eva chen, Forever 21, H&M, Teen Vogue
