Fashion Blogger Style Challenge
In addition to working with our everyday clients, Style Doctors also styles a wide range of people from celebrities, to business professionals, and even to fashion bloggers. Last week we told you about our styling experience with fashion blogger Holly here, and this week, we’re talking about the lovely Patricia and our fashion blogger style challenge of trying to find an outfit in just an hour on Oxford Street!
Patricia’s brief was that she wanted a Clueless inspired outfit to wear for London Fashion Week. Armed with just this information, her Instagram feed, and her sizes, personal stylist Elin Mai and myself took on the challenge of finding Patricia a complete look that she would love in just an hour.
We began the hunt for the perfect outfit at Zara, where we put together over five different outfits for Patricia (all of which she looked fantastic in!) We were going for a Clueless look, keeping an eye out for blazers, plaid, and anything else Cher-esque. While we found many great options that worked with each other, Patricia fell in love with a green plaid blazer with matching shorts.
This outfit is great because it can be styled up with added colour for a fun, quirky look, or if you’re going for a more classic look, you can pair it with black accessories. While Patricia looks amazing in both, she opted for the classic look, pairing it with knee-high black boots and a very on-trend circle bag.
The Final Outfit
Our next stop was River Island, where we put together even more Clueless-related outfits, including a really fun pink outfit with a jacket and skirt, complete with a baker boy hat. Outfits like these are great ways to experiment with colour and prints and are going to be very in during the upcoming spring season.
“I’m used to walking up and down Oxford Street, but rarely pop in to stores, I’m well and truly an online shopper – anything that means I don’t need to brace both the cold and people is a winner for me – plus, everything looks different when tried on at home right? At least that’s what I tell myself. With that said, we were on Oxford Street in the early afternoon and the shops were surprisingly quiet making it quite a nice experience.”
