In today’s Fashion 101, we will look at 7 Different Types of Fashion Styles—the must-haves, how to style them, some Pinterest inspiration, and the people we see as icons you need to follow on Instagram ASAP!

You can never go wrong with a Classic Style

A classic style is one that works for almost everyone, and it is perfect for variate occasions. With this fashion style, you can go about your day looking put together, sophisticated, and yet comfortable. And then again, all types of fashion styles must be adapted to you. For example, you might just don’t like wearing heels, so choose some cute flats and level them up with pants. Or maybe pamper up with that gorgeous necklace you have or some sunglasses!

Interestingly, your fashion choices may also reflect your personality type, as certain styles often resonate more with specific personality traits, allowing you to further showcase your unique identity.

For this Style, the major must-haves are a white shirt, tailored trousers, and, if you’re feeling fancy, a tailored blazer.

Pinterest is also a great tool to find inspiration for looks, and for making the outfit hunt a bit easier in the morning.

Straight out of the 50s

The 50s were one of the most iconic times ever! And to this day we love the classic red lip and the polka dots. This Fashion Style is all about vintage-looking clothes with a twist of sensuality. Normally trousers don’t really go but if you make it elegant enough it surely will be a statement! Chanel is a must, and a long skirt works for every occasion!

For the perfect 50s inspired outfit, go ahead and find your favorite midi skirt and add an elegant top. And, of course, do not forget about the red lip!

The Icon

We all know Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and Brigitte Bardot, and they are icons when it comes to 50s fashion. However, this is a style with great new influences ascending at this time. Great content creators like Jessica Chiswell, a TikToker who grew from dressing like 50s women all the time.

The Artsy Mom that loves Fashion

You can also explore a more artsy take on Fashion. And for this Style, it takes a lot of bravery and boldness to rock colors and patterns all day long. It is fully inspired by the futurist movement, hence the abstractionism and the funky shapes. Although the point is to be creative and different, there are always ways to give it a more toned-down everyday twist.

The major must-haves are colors in general and a lot of masculine shirts but level it up with a gorgeous pair of colored heels. Overalls are also a great statement piece for this style and they can be styled in many different ways.

On Pinterest look for color and artistic looks and explore the great world of fashion through the lenses of futuristic artists.

Where to buy from?

A lot of designer brands are taking a new approach to fashion and in many cases, it is a very creative one. From Burberry to Gucci, color and patterns can be found all throughout the luxury fashion industry.

Casual and laid back

A more casual style works for everyone and it is the most common. Jeans and a t-shirt and a nice pair of comfortable sneakers to run errands all day. And, of course, this is one of those types of fashion styles you can dress up with sunglasses and handbags. There’s not much to this style other than it is a great way to start your journey in Fashion.

Since this is pretty much the basic fashion style, we will be focusing on how to spice it up!

  1. Firstly, get good quality pieces. The essentials are great and must last ages!
  2. Add some colors and patterns. Choose a more colorful top and balance it out with jeans.

Boho Chic for the win

This is another fashion style that has a cult-like audience and it’s so fashionable. Chloé is a great place to find the most from this style. It is basically inspired by the hippies and the spiritual realm. Women love to pull off long boho chic dresses with embroidered lace, and oversized framed sunglasses. However, when it comes to colors, this style is not a big advocate, hence the neutral color palette.
