Style I Love: Rachel Bilson

Rachel Bilson has the type of style and taste in fashion that I envy.  Everything she wears is so put together, yet very effortless.  I love how she layers and experiments with colors and somehow on her tiny frame, everything seems to work! In my opinion,  two of her best accessories are  her signature wayfarer sunnies and her long ombre-esque hair.  Ever since I first saw Rachel as Summer on the “OC”, she has been on my fashion radar.  Talk about style evolution from season 1-4!

1. Blazer, scarf, boyfriend jeans and booties–the perfect fall outfit

2. Rachel plays up her scalloped top and drapey shorts with a structured blazer and lady-like purse.

3. A classic white dress with nude pumps. Per-fection!

4. I love the color pallette of this outfit. Muted colors are so pretty! I’d probably opt for flats for this look, though! However, RB definitley knows how to rock the heels!

Whose style do you love and covet?! I can think of many. many more!

Fashion Finds

Fall is by far my favorite time of year when it comes to fashion.  I can’t get enough of boots, skirts and dresses layered with tights, cardigans, and scarves. I also love the warmer textures fall clothing are often made of such as leather, suede, cashmere and chunky knits.  Hurry up and get here, fall!!! In the mean time, we will have to melt in the 100 degree (plus) weather and try to stay as cool as possible.

After skimming through Gap, Piperlime, Old Navy and Banana Republic (All under the Gap Inc. umbrella),  I found some great pieces for the upcoming, yet still far away, season. Some of the pieces I found are great for the current hot weather, while others might be more approraiate once the temperature has dropped. Nonetheless, both Old Navy and Piperlime have some great items right now that I would love to get my hands on. See for yourself!

Pretty Little Liars: Part Four

The fourth and final PLL girl is Hanna! I feel like her style has gotten better since the first couple of episodes–she now experiments more with layers and statement pieces and is the ultimate girly-girl, but in a really unique way. While I think that Aria’s style is the “coolest”, I would have to say that I would most likely wear clothing similar to Hanna’s. I really like girly, frilly and lacy things that are pretty, but understated

The one thing that you will almost always see Hanna wearing?? Heels. The girl loooves her heels! Hanna also wears a lot of blazers, flowy dresses, ruffles, pastel or neutral colors with a splash of black, bold earrings, large designer bags and her hair is almost always down and perfectly curled.  Hanna always looks very put together and polished and could easily take her outfits from day to night. The above pictures make it seem that she only wears black blazers which is not the case at all, but I had a hard time finding a photo that represented Hanna’s style appropriately.

Hanna

I would definitely wear this outfit–my favorite piece is the top! : ) I hope you have enjoyed my take on all the PLL girls’ style!!

Do you like Hanna’s style? Do you think you are more girly like Hannah, classic like Spencer, casual like Emily, or edgy like Aria??

Pretty Little Liars: Part Three

Onto the third installment of this PLL fashion blog series! It’s Emily! She is by far the most laid back and casual girl of the group and it suits her athletic and easy-breezy lifestyle perfectly. What’s really funny is in real life, Shay Mitchell (who plays Emily), is said to be the girliest out of all the castmates!

Emily can be found in a lot of shorts, cute cargo pants, jean skirts, basic tee shirts, stylish teenis shoes, messenger bags, drapey tees, jackets, cardigans and modest jewelry. She’s kind of the girl next door sports rockstar.  Even though she’s dressed down most of the time, she always looks cute in her outfits. I’d say her style is the easiest to relate to for most high school girls these days.  Especially when I was in high school, half the school dressed similar to this.  Her style is my least favorite, only because she never wears anything very exciting or something I haven’t seen before, unlike the other PLL girls. However, like I said, her style is the the most attainable for most people.

Do you think your style is similar to Emily’s??

Pretty Little Liars: Part Two

Today’s featured PLL gal is Spencer! I think Spencer’s style is very cute, but way too preppy and tailored for my liking. She pulls it off very well though, and has the perfect figure for her clothing choices. Often, you’ll find Spencer in straight-legged pants, oxford flats, blazers, collared or button up blouses, cardigans, knee high socks, headbands and girly jewelry such as pearls or delicate necklaces.

Her style is very lady-like and modest, yet has a modern twist. Some of her outfits look like she borrowed an awesome vintage blouse from her grandma but then styled it in a way that is fresh and up-to-date. I really like her style and should probably take some notes from it. Classic is always good!

Spencer

Would you ever wear something that Spencer has in her closet??

Pretty Little Liars: Part One

Aria

The Season 2 premiere of  “Pretty Little Liars” is just a little over two weeks away, June 14th, and I cannot wait to dive right back into the Rosewood drama! This television show is filled with mystery, secrets, gossip, hotttttt guys, and the four main characters have awesome style!

Spencer, Emily, Hanna & Aria each have very unique wardrobes that showcase their personalities and set them apart from each other.  I’m not sure who I identify with most when it comes to my personal style, but I’d have to say that I admire Aria’s wardrobe the most–just because it’s really edgy and cool, but also feminine at the same time.

It sort of has that Rachel Bilson feel of  “oh, I just grabbed all of these random things from my closet and pulled them together and what do you know? It looks effortlessly chic.” She wears a lot of boots, florals, cropped jackets, accessories & jewelry  with some “edge”, lace, bright nail polish and also dark nail polish and large bags.  You rarely see Aria wearing pants, since it seems she prefers dresses and skirts. Also, of course, she has perfect long dark hair–all of the PLL girls have beautiful hair, what’s up with that?! Pshh

Granted, Aria doesn’t actually style herself, so I give credit to all of the wardrobe stylists for the show! : ) Great job on ALL the Pretty Little Liars costumes.

If you haven’t watched the show, the first season is now available to buy on DVD and I might just be indulging in a little of that this weekend.  I highly recommend watching it–you will NOT be disappointed!

For the next two weeks I will be creating polyvore sets based around each character’s style and giving it my own little spin. If you haven’t guessed already, this week is Aria! Stay tuned for the next feature girl : )

Do you watch Pretty Little Liars?? Which character can you identify most with based on their style??
