With every move that celebrities make being documented and plastered on the covers of tabloids, it’s hard to avoid taking note of each star’s unique personal style. Celebrities are the trendsetters of the fashion industry and are always caught wearing the trendiest pieces and styling outfits in unique, groundbreaking ways. With the help of the best stylists in the industry, the absolute easiest place to look for style inspiration is from the street style and award show looks of the most fashion-forward celebs. Fame10 has compiled a list of inspiration that can be taken from today’s celeb style icons. Whether you want to look elegant like Kate Middleton or be a trendsetter like Olivia Palermo, read below for the best celebrity-inspired style tips to help you look your best.
8. Gigi Hadid – Mix edgy and conservative pieces
The queen of the street style fashion category can undoubtedly teach us a thing or two about matching pieces. Known for her edgy fashion sense, this Hadid sister has proven that pairing different style pieces is actually super trendy. She proves that mixing feminine with rocker or classy with bohemian is a great way to look contemporary and on trend. With this outfit, we see her mixing edgy mesh and leather with conservative plaid trousers and she pulls it off flawlessly.
7. Taylor Swift – Matching sets are effortless
Taylor Swift is known for her tomboy, rocker style and never fails to flaunt a classy red lip to top off even the most basic outfit. Swift’s simplistic wardrobe of graphic tees, mini skirts and converse shoes makes her a leader in achievable fashion. Take inspiration from Swift’s effortless matching set style! By pairing two pieces that match, like a crop top and a matching trouser, you can achieve a streamlined look that is also super trendy without having to worry about ensuring your colour palettes or prints flow together.
6. Blake Lively – Black is classic
Black will always be the “new” black. Despite the many claims of the fashion industry that pink or blue or brown is the new black, a true classic all-black outfit will never go out of style. Take it from Blake Lively – she looks super chic and trendy in her black ensemble at the People’s Choice Awards and it required minimal effort to style without having to worry about the confining rules of matching pieces.
5. Beyonce Knowles – Leather jackets are staples
No one knows better than Queen B how to rock an outfit from head to toe perfection. Take it from Beyonce to remind us once again how iconic the leather jacket is. A quality leather jacket is a staple piece to have in your wardrobe and is super versatile to be worn for both night and day events.
4. Kim Kardashian – Own one piece of printed outerwear
Although Kim K has landed herself on both worst and best dressed lists, one tip we can take from her sense of style is this colour block outerwear piece. Leaning towards simple neutral outerwear is a practical tendency that many of us have, but owning one bold printed jacket is an effortless way to look trendy. Pulling off a jacket like this is actually easier than you would think! The jacket does all the talking in this situation, so simply wearing all one colour underneath such as black works perfectly to pull off this Kardashian inspired look.
3. Kate Middleton – Blazers and structured tops provide instant class
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has overwhelmed us with graceful, ladylike style inspiration ever since her first debut with Prince William. One key tip we can take away from her iconic fashion sense is the effectiveness of a power suit. She rocks blazers and structured dresses on a regular basis and the simple collar-like neckline of this dress gives her look instant elegance.
2. Victoria Beckham – A plain white button-up blouse is timeless
No one does it like Beckham and this uber fashionista has definitely made a name for herself over the years when it comes to style. Her fashion sense is so iconic that she’s even started her own self-named clothing line. A tip we’ve learned from noting Beckham’s style is the timelessness of a plain white button-up top. In this photo she pairs it with a lime green skirt and looks so trendy that we almost forget how easy a look like this would be to achieve.
1. Olivia Palermo – Layering is key
Arguably the ultimate style icon, Olivia Palermo never fails to take fashion risks and is known for always setting the trends rather than following them. The biggest tip we could take from Palermo’s style is that layering is key. In this photo she rocks a satin bomber over a striped tee, which would seemingly come across as a fashion mess but she totally makes it work and inspires us. Adding a third piece like Palermo tends to do often takes an outfit up an extra notch.
