Celebrity Style: Margot Robbie Edition

Margot Robbie, especially in this shoot on the set of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, has always been major hair and style inspo for me. While the perfect at-home blowout still eludes me, I realized that I could probably come pretty close to emulating this iconic look thanks to my latest impulse purchase: white go-go boots (which are on sale right now for just $22, by the way!)

I love this outfit so much and can’t wait to incorporate it into my regular outfit cycle (although note to self: wait until it’s warmer than 32 degrees next time!)

SHOP THE LOOK:

Top: Black Turtleneck Sweater (similar)
Skirt: Women’s Court Dri-FIT Flouncy Tennis Skirt – Nike
Purse: Black Crossbody – bebe
Shoes: Go-Go Boots – Ellie

Not tucking my turtleneck into my skirt was giving me major 2010 Kayla vibes, but I think it actually turned out super cute! Who is your celebrity style inspiration?

Cable Knit: Styling Sweater Vests

I’ve already talked about my love of the preppy style resurgence once on the blog, but today I’m focusing on a different preppy style trend: sweater vests! I made many trips to local thrift stores before finding one to add to my collection. I’ve found that they key to styling sweater vests is making sure they have v-neck neckline. I’m usually against v-necks, but they work so well with this style and adding a collared shirt underneath!

When styling your own sweater vest, you could also pair it with a pleated or flared skirt, but I chose to style mine with jeans since it was a crisp 38 degrees when doing this shoot. I also think the jeans make it so wearable and cute for day-to-day activities! To really play up the preppy vibe, I added a pearl choker and green marble hair clip.

Rumor Has It: Styling Street Style

One of my favorite trends from 2020 has been adding elements of street style into my wardrobe. It used to intimidate me, but as I experimented more I realized how easy it is to put together an effortlessly-chic streetwear look. I love these outfits for days when I’m out running errands or just lounging around at home. They are super versatile and work for a lot of different situations!

When I first start styling a street style outfit, I like to stick to items in a black and white color scheme. This is easy, as many of my trendier pieces tend to lean black and white anyways. For my own personal take on street style, I always choose a more “athletic” piece as the staple. For today’s look, it was my biker shorts. I’ve been living in these lately and I knew they would be the perfect foundation for this outfit. I then chose my black puffer jacket and paired it with a white turtleneck for some contrast. To tie everything together, I accessorized with my chic gold hoops, nylon crossbody, and chunky Filas. Casual, cute, and so comfortable!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Round Plastic Metal Combo Sunglasses – Target
Earrings: Gold Hoop Earrings (similar)
Purse: Nylon Crossbody (similar)
Coat: Black Puffer Jacket (similar)
Top: White Cotton Turtleneck (similar)
Bottoms: High Waist Biker Shorts – Yogalicious
Shoes: Disruptor Sneaker – Fila

I hope biker shorts don’t go out of style any time soon because I’ve been loving them, even in winter. I just think they’re such a fresh take on leggings and are super flattering!

What’s your favorite street style essential?
