When it comes to fashion, everyone has an opinion. So I decided to ask some of the wonderful and beautiful women I’ve met over this year to give me their perspective on what fashion is to them. Each has a very unique “Phashion” Philosophy. (Please dont kill me for the bad pun!)
Phashion Philosophy: Hottest Modest Hippie
Describe your style: Flower child meets Forever 21 and Target
Can’t leave the house without: Dangly earrings or big-ish hoops
Favorite item: see above but really all earrings
Look I can’t stand: Leggings as pants/shirts as dresses
Favorite color to wear: BLUE
Fashion Idol: Me?
Phashion Philosophy: Anything goes!
Describe your style: lazy bum, punk rock, hippie, 90s
Can’t leave the house without: aviators
Favorite item: leather jacket
Look I can’t stand: Uggs + Northface + leggings. So unoriginal.
Favorite color to wear: charcoal grey or sage green
Fashion Idol: When I find one, I’ll let you know
Phashion Philosophy: Wear what you want.
Describe your style: Sweet and Sassy
Can’t leave the house without: a pair of sunglasses, you never know when you’ll need them.
Favorite item: Oh geez… it’s either my battle boots or my converse, both are my go-to shoes!
Look I can’t stand: Uggs…I wouldn’t be caught dead in them. Unless someone put them on me when I was dead. And if that was the case, I’d haunt the crap out of that person!
Favorite color to wear: Red or purple.
Fashion Idol: Emma Watson and Adam Lambert.
Phashion Philosophy: Kate Middleton meets Athens
Describe your style: I’m a fan of pretty much everything and I love trying out new trends. Lately I’ve been obsessed with riding boots and flouncy/ 70s tops.
Can’t leave the house without: A giant purse/tote.
Favorite item: Knee high boots. My brown riding boots and my hand me down moccasin boots are my current obsession.
Look I can’t stand: Booty shorts. Leave something to the imagination please!
Favorite color to wear: Blue or purple.
Fashion Idol: Emma Watson and Kate Middleton. They’re classy, elegant and still throw fashion curveballs. I think it’s important to take notes from your fashion idols but then put your spin on it. Don’t loose you in your quest for fashion.
Phashion Philosophy: Elegant bohemian
Describe your style:: I love things that are flowy or loose to show of the body’s curves without hugging them (though I usually balance that with skinny jeans). Then I add in some interest with natural elements and textures.
Can’t leave the house without: subtle color – I tend to avoid neons but instead use soft pastels and jade tones to play up my pale skin
Look I can’t stand: long flat ironed hair with a comb-over, I mean really, plenty of other hairstyles look great. Find something original.
Favorite color to wear: pale blue or burgundy
Fashion Idol: Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad
While these women have figured out their philosophies, I’m going to keep working on mine. Let me know what your philosophy is!
(Almost) Fashionably Yours,
