When cleaning out your closet and defining your personal style, it’s best to have a style inspiration in mind. This will keep your purge focused and can take you from a mish-mash of random pieces to a clear attitude resulting in a wardrobe that functions together well in a remix.
It’s probably no secret that I have a love of dark hair and thick retro bangs inspired by the fabulous and creative Zooey Deschanel. She is my style icon. The girl I look to for inspiration when I find myself at a style crossroads.
Ms. Deschanel wears a lot of styles that also flatter my body type and she always leans toward the vintage or vintage-inspired, which I also adore. She has a thing for tights in different colors and textures, which, let’s face it, are the reason I love fall and winter much more than the balmy summer. She can pull off flats in a black tie setting and each outfit has a playfulness I aspire to. She is a girl after my own heart.
So, as I continue to scrutinize each piece of my wardrobe I will be using my new mantra: “What would Zooey do?”
Who is your style icon?
