Being an online based business, we often don’t get the chance to meet our clients face to face – save for the local gals who come in and say hi, we love this! We really depend on your style survey to get to know you, your style, and what you’re looking to get out of this service. The more details, the better! This also applies to any feedback you have from each months selections – we love to hear it all, the good, the bad and the ugly!
One of the questions in our style survey that really helps us get a vision of how you’d like to look is the Style Icon question. What public figures fashion sense inspires you? What is it about their style that you love? Below are some tips to really make this answer create the results you desire from this service – as well as some fun interpretations of some common icons!
We think that as a society, we really are making the push to be more body inclusive and to be able to see all different shapes and sizes in mainstream media. Finding an icon with a similar shape as you is super helpful to your stylist, as they can really envision how the styles will look on your frame. Clothing that flatters petites, apple shapes, larger busts and hips all have different elements that make them the right choice for you!
Even though celebrities are often dressed by different stylists for different events, there are still some similar styles and colours that better suit them that they are photographed in more often! Pay close attention to what they’re seen most in – brights and bold or neutrals, and which is more suited to your taste?
As glamorous as we all are, not many of us are frequently attending red carpet galas or awards shows. Celebs “off duty” looks are a great indicator to their true sense of style, and a lot of the outfits will most likely suit your day to day lifestyle needs as well.
Kate Middleton and Megan Markle are by far the most popular choice for the Style Icon question! Classic, feminine and put together are all words we would use to describe this look. Tailored clothing in mostly neutrals and muted tones, with an equestrian flair for Kate and a sophisticated take for Megan. Here are some pics of them that we often use for inspiration to style boxes for these icon choices.
The casual, girl next door look – so easy! We think of these boxes in terms of neutrals and tonal dressing – black and whites, earth tones and of course, a good pair of jeans! Simple silhouettes paired with everlasting details like leather belts, ankle booties and understated jewelry. To spice this look up a bit, adding the third piece to your outfits in the form of denim or leather jackets is a must have for this look.
Not only is this lady one of our favourite comediennes, she also has a great sense of style! Skinny pants, flowy tops and a kimono or vest is a staple for her wardrobe. Since she’s involved in a fashion line herself, we get the sense that she’s not afraid of a trend! Figure flattering styles that are current and chic all wrapped up in your Frock Box – yes please!
