the Different Fashion Styles

Fashion Tip:

Details can easily create different looks and it's affordable! Invest more in fashion jewelry and accessories. You get the best bang for your buck.

On this you'll discover various looks, styles and clothing types, as well as fashion eras that you can implement into your own wardrobe!

I've gathered the best and most popular of the different fashion styles I find stylish and chic - everything from boho to vintage, french, to global street fashion (it's exciting to see what fashionistas from around the world are wearing!). Other looks such as Preppy and Rocker-Chic will be added sometime in the future.

By drawing fashion inspiration from outside of your comfort zone you'll discover new ways of reinventing your outfits which helps in developing your unique personal style. So experiment with high-end and low-end; mix the new with the old; and trendy with the classics!



How to Achieve a Unique Personal Style

The trick to achieving a unique style that is all you is to combine elements from different fashion styles as well as from various aspects of your personality/taste/lifestyle/mood/etc..

"I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern - wearing head-to-toe designer has become a bit passe. It's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together."
- Alexander McQueen (British fashion designer)


However, keep in mind that if you want to look ultra-chic you need to whip up an outfit combination consisting of basics and trendy pieces to keep your look balanced and avoid a head-to-toe loony look.

So make sure you've already secured the wardrobe essentials first before you start shopping for the current fashion trends that are likely to fade 6 months from now.

Now let's look at the topics I'm covering:

Chic Fashion Inspiration:
Different Fashion Styles & Looks

The chic fashionista Anna Villaruel says I've gathered the 'best of the best' of chic fashion inspiration based on my personal opinion. These are styles that remain in today's fashion regardless of the current fashion trends. For example: Bohemian fashion is considered a state of mind, vintage is timeless because it covers a wide range of time eras, it's original and brings a charming nostalgia your outfit, while street fashion is a mix of everything people are creating around the world no matter how the trends (catwalk) are evolving.

Timeless Fashion Styles

French fashion is one of the chic'est look you can achieve. Chic fashion is highly influenced by the French - the sole founders of style: Smart, timeless and sophisticated style! It's classy but a bit sassy.

It's not that difficult to appear like you came from the streets of Paris. Achieving a French fashion style is all about mixing wardrobe staples and self-confidence! Looks effortless this way.

Bohemian fashion is my personal favorite when it comes to fashion, so that's why I want to share some of my tricks and tips on how to achieve a modern boho-chic look. Looking chic is never stiff, it's free-flowing and effortless. I especially love how bohemian style clothing looks casual, pretty and exotic.

One of the best ways to elevate your personal style is to add some charm and nostalgia with vintage fashion. Somewhere in the baskets and racks of mothball-smelling grandma skirts and scarves lies a perfect jewel waiting to connect with your style persona.

You'll find vintage clothing almost everywhere. Vintage fashion ranges from the early 1900's to 1990's so you might find something that will work for you. I think my tips on adding vintage to your style and how to buy vintage clothes online and offline will help you get started.

For a fresh outlook on style, seek out for fashion inspiration from the streets in metropolitan cities such as Paris, Barcelona, Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong etc. Street fashion is a cool way of dressing stylishly - it's fashion made by people!

And why not add some eco friendly clothing to your wardrobe as well? It's a great way to wear clothes without draining our earth's natural resources.

Now I'm not trying to go all hippie on you and start chanting: "Save our earth" and preach about being one of earth's children. I'm just saying that it's the small things that count that can make a difference in our nature's and environment's health.

How about using a reusable shopping bag when picking up groceries? It's the least we can do if you don't want to invest in a new wardrobe with organic made clothes.
