As you've probably guessed by the title, today I'm going to be showing you how to dress like a style icon. In my opinion, personal style is an important thing and it's something that everyone has even nit they're not necessarily seen as "fashionable". I see my personal style as art, it's my creative outlet and a form of expressing who I am. Sure, I get a lot of ideas from stalking instagram and pinterest for outfit ideas and of course, there's certain people whose outfits I never fail to love.
So, it's time for me to show you my style icons and share some tips on how to dress like a style icon.
Vanessa HudgensSinger & Actress Instagram - @vanessahudgens
My first icon of choice is Vanessa Hudgens and I'm sure I don't really need to explain why. Her looks are effortless and always so well coordinated. She uses simple patterns, as you can see with the polka dot dress which overflows with vintage vibes. As you can see, she's not afraid of vibrant colours; this girl really knows how to work a yellow. She knows her colour pallets and she knows the best way to make a colour pop is to have it against a simple background, here she uses white - Her outfits are put together so well.
Overall, her style is bohemian/hippy chic and everyone in the world knows this (maybe a slight over exaggeration).
TIP #1 Have an established style and own it.
I love all of her outfits here, especially the pretty detailed dress. It's very feminine. The thing that I like about all of these outfits is what she's thrown over them; grandpa style cardigans. They're nothing special, they're very simple in fact but they really do make the outfit.
TIP #2 Throw a cardigan over your outfit and sometimes have it draped over your shoulders instead of wearing it properly.
Actress & Singer Instagram - @Zendaya
TIP #3 Don't be afraid to experiment with clashing patterns.
The thing that I love about Zendaya's style is that she's got a very chill and casual look to her and then BAM out of nowhere comes this look. I mean look at her she looks like an earthly goddess in this mustard yellow scarlett trimmed Dolce & Gabbana gown. She looks so iconic. I love the parrots and the flowers, everything about this look is amazing.

Jessica's style is very similar to Zendaya's in terms of the casualness and often wearing flats etc... However, I feel that Jess has a bit more edge to her style and even though her outfits are casual they stand out a lot, just from the way she carries them. She uses very simple colours and patterns but definitely isn't afraid to experiment with a more "wild style".
One of the coolest things about Jessica's style is her use of fur coats (check out her insta, they're everywhere). Her fur coats are where she ups her style game, it's where she takes her casual outfits to the next level of glamour. From high street to cat walk. The best thing is that she wears them so often that they've become "her thing".
TIP #4 Find an accessories you like, experiment with it and make it "your thing". Write your name all over it.
That's all from me today, I hope you enjoyed the post and got some ideas from it. I'm going to try and somehow put up with this blocked nose, wish me luck.
