Guest Post: Stealing their Style

It’s hardly surprising that fashion bloggers have impeccable taste when it comes to dressing well, more often than not bloggers have the most interesting way of seeing clothes.

When I’m feeling a little un-inspired all it takes is a quick scan of my favourite blogs and I’m flushed with ideas. Whether they’re lucky enough to carry all of the latest ‘it bags’ and wear this season’s most wanted items, or just have a novel way of putting together outfits, blogs are a veritable catalogue of how real people wear clothes.

So what better than looking up four of our favourite bloggers and drawing inspiration from their own personal style? Not saying that anyone should simply copy others but it’s a great way to build on your own personal taste, by taking your favourite aspects of some of the best dressers out there.

Barefoot Blonde

The Arizona based blogger is the perfect person to come to for laid back style with a luxe twist, think sumptuous coats paired with cool prints and bright pops of colour, and not forgetting an impressive blonde barnet!

This look from Amber of the Barefoot Blonde is great for the colder months as you can layer up the look without it getting frumpy. And animal print is one of this season’s biggest trends so make sure to give it a go!Barefoot_Blonde

She has a fantastic ability to pair staples with really glamorous statement pieces to create looks that are perfect for almost any occasion without looking over the top!

This look is perfect for the weekend. We love the print clash of the plaid and stripes and the Valentino Rockstud sandals are absolutely to die for. For those in colder climates simply team this look with a longline oversized coat and turn up the collar to finish.
