Guest Post: You Wear What you Watch

Pretty Little Liars

Runway fashion is awe-inspiring and often goes on to awaken street style and the looks you see at your local department store. But where do we really get our biggest fashion inspiration from? The answer is our favorite movies and TV shows. Lately, the world of entertainment has been not only a huge trendsetter, but the source of major fashion movements. So if you suffer from a continuous “I-don’t-have-anything-to-wear-syndrome,” here are a few characters to take some inspiration from.

Pretty Little Liars Style Icons

Currently, the main show serving as a fashion muse for almost every fashionista is Pretty Little Liars. PLL literally has something for everyone.

If you’re sophisticated, yet classy then Spencer Hastings is your girl. Like every great prepster, she’s too chic to be nerdy. Spencer’s fine and elegant school girl fashion sense is never out of place and is easy to pull off everyday.

If you’re into ultra girly glamour than Hannah Marin should be your style role model. She’s always immaculately dressed to impress. Though she sometimes goes a little overboard with the bling, Hannah knows how to perfectly accessorize her looks. Girls looking for a flirty and girly way to dress up can take inspiration from this young fashionista.

Chasing Life and Style

Not many may agree that Chasing Life is a fashion inspiration. But for people who are new to their jobs and want a simple yet charmingly casual look, then Ms. April Carver can be your inspiration. This girl is obviously going through a tough time in her life, but with friends and family like hers, it wouldn’t hurt much to dress nice.

If we talk about the show in particular I am not much of a fan but, Catherine Chandler dresses so well that one can’t miss an episode. From her perfect jackets to pretty dresses, the girl is a walking fashion magazine. If you like to keep things extremely chic, follow her fashion.

The Vampire (and my fashion) Diaries


This show was a hit for its first few seasons, lost its fan following but regained them all back through the latest season. If we forget the show itself for a moment, the dresses and outfits featured on it are just perfect.

There’s something about Elena Gilbert’s style that gets us all swooning every time she makes her appearance. If we look at Elena’s style sense, she’s never over or underdressed and everything is always in place, no matter if she’s dressed casual,  semi-formal or formal.

Caroline Forbes is another fashion girl crush from the show. The outspoken yet super stylish Caroline loves to keep it girly and sometimes edgy. You’ll see her in an adorable girly dress one day and the next day she’ll be killing it with some edgy and sultry pieces.

The list can go on and on. Have fun fashion lovers and stay fabulous!

ABC Family’s Jane By Design Style Challenge #6

Fashion inspiration is everywhere. But, when it comes from food, it absolutely takes the cake.  For Round #6, the second to last round of the ABC Family Jane By Design Style Challenge, I was given a few bags of pretzels and told to make an outfit inspired by them. Yes, you heard correctly.  I made an outfit inspired by a pretzel.  My first reaction was, “What? A pretzel?  How do people in fashion know about carbs anyway let alone build an outfit around one?”

As I stared at the pretzels more, I started thinking about all the tones of brown, tan, and black that I wear.  Then, I started thinking about the iconic shape of a pretzel.  The pieces of dough seem to wrap around each other like a hug.  I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I love carbs so making an outfit surrounding them is kind of a dream come true.  In honor of New Year’s Eve, I took the classic little black dress and paired it with one of my favorite brownish tan sweaters.  New Year’s Eve is cold so you always need a sweater with your little black dress.  I also packed a snack for later in a beige DKNY clutch in the form of (you guessed it) pretzels!  On nights that involve heavy drinking, it’s always important to have a snack for later, especially one that goes with your outfit.
