Trending Now: Street Style

Recently, I've been seeing and hearing the term Street Style way more than often. So, has Street Style become the new Runway?

In fact, I must admit it's way more interesting to view a fashion blog each day and be intrigued by the individual and uniqueness of that bloggers conceptualizing of runway trends and their style. Because personally I can honestly say it's way easier for me to choose and decipher which trends are only for the runway  and which will inn fact flatter me, plus lets admit we've all tried plagiarizing our favorite fashion bloggers outfits; it's just so inspirational.

But don't worry a bit classic Chanel is as the name implies CLASSIC. My advice is take the inspiration from the blogger choose trends you really want to try but always invest/ splurge on the classics.

Let's be INSPIRED!

How to Dress Like Aria montgomery (Pretty Litte Liars)



So, am going to be doing one blog post a week featuring my favorite fashionable characters from my fave TV shows (bare in mind that some might not be my fave people in that show). I'll be sharing my views on the looks and how to get the look 4 LESS. Because we all know you don't have to be rich to be a fashionista.

With That said lets get to it, I just could resist but to feature this girl first. She hails from my utmost favorite show and she is my most adored character on any show. I don't know the stylist/s as yet but I truly get inspired by the easy going yet totally fashionable way of putting things together. So, can I get a drum roll please.................. (Is the suspense killing you yet? l.o.l.) And the winner is Aria Montgomery ( You know you love her and her gorgeous boy toy).

She's just so adorable with wavy hair and those side swept bangs. Let's  get to it, in my opinion her style is grunge crossed with some glam rock ( Just enough not hard core) after all she is artsy writer, don't we see New York in the near future;well I do. But according to Teen Vogue her style is "Eclectic and unexpected Vintage-inspired Experimental Worldly" and I have to agree because after walking every episode; hate to brag it's like she put her own spin on vintage, rock star and grunge.

Hair
Aria's hair is very well put together and by that I mean every strand is always in place, let's say for argument sake that her loose big voluminous curls has a saying "No strand left aside"...................l.o.l. Her side part is signature and perfected.
To get aria beautiful curls I used this video and so can you.

Make up
Smokey eye and pink lips (usually bright), which am sure that we've all tried to perfect, but let's keep it a secret; I failed miserably on multiple occasions. Shhhhhhhhhhh..........

Clothes
Colors
Look over into the dark side and embrace it, because if a make up palette was created to mimic Aria's wardrobe it would mainly feature neutrals, browns, blacks and dark red. As I said Grunge much!!!
 
Leather
Leather boots, leather jackets and leather handbags lots and lots of leather, rock star chic, vintage leather has been in for quite some time so let absorb Aria's fashion forward abilities.


Lace
Aria lives in lace, and this trivial question has been intruding my mind space since it entered my thinking very willingly. Does she prefer lace or leather, lace or leather, lace or leather? While this question bombarded my thoughts another proceeded in joining the party, which one does she rock naturally the hardest? My answer is undecided because while she does do good with some good ole' signature leather pieces, the second nature feel of lace truly does appeal strongly to my sixth sense, sense of style.

Patterns
Unlike the average fashionable teen, Aria is daring, artsy, may I say I'm inspired (sure I've said so before). While I sadly might in the now and wear a floral, Aria would totally rock a floral but as darling as she is, she would totally go for something bold. Like abstract pieces, something more out there, like her relationship RISKY. Make notes my fab ones, surely do.Sometimes we do have to go outside of the box to lead the pack.

Jewelery
When it comes to jewelery, Aria is adventurous; statement is key or should I say statement jewelery. Another thing to remember when mimicking always layer whether it be jewelery or clothes. Layering is your friend. So add some feather and some fringe maybe even some tassels cause she has done it all.

Now that we've gone through the basics lets get to the fun stuff:  
Getting the Look for a LOT LESS (I would think)

Alexander Mc Queen Knockoffs

I know that am like 5 fashion yrs late but I just could help but mention the greatness of these  A. McQueen Faithful Bootie knockoff by Steve Madden (gotta to say I adore them both). The only major difference that I could help but notice is the PRICE.....................lol. Can really tell the difference in quality of leather from a glance. So, what do you think?
