With the weather cooling off and classes reaching their tough spots, I think we could all use a few pick me ups in the form of some eye candy and daily inspiration that we can view on the go. There’s something super enriching about surrounding yourself with things that inspire you and push you to change it up, whether it’s on a personal level or in your fashion choices. This week, I present to you some places to get that fix.
Instagram is an amazing way to have a constant feed of inspiration without hoarding blog urls or spending hours on your laptop ignoring your professors. I do not need to explain to you that the social media site is the perfect platform for fashion sharing. Even if you do not spend hours scouring their pages for brands and details, having little pops of fashionable advice here and there on your feed really pushes your subconscious to go for the look you’ve been eyeing.
However, when it comes to inspiration, it’s nice to have something a little bit closer to home. These Boston Bloggers have the inside scoop on nearby events, good local eats and naturally, good locations for outfit photoshoots. Some of them are grads from local colleges, so they really know the ins and outs of our location, our needs and budgets.
If you want to take to your bed rather than the increasingly chilly streets, these fashion documentaries will satisfy your eyes and desire to Netflix the night away. The list includes documentaries ranging from the story of Raf Simons coming to Dior to the biopic of fashion icon Iris Apfel. This list contains hours of inspiration, motivation and perspective on styles and the entire fashion industry.
Continuing on the theme of inspiration, how about some scarfspiration? I admit, not all of these are in a student budget, but the listed scarves are great examples of what’s hot right now for fall, emulating a walk down Newbury Street. With these in mind, it is really easy to make the most of an accessory pit stop to Forever 21, Zara, H&M or Primark.
The bonus article here is about rocking denim on denim. This trend appears every fall, because it is too hot for summer and not really insulating enough for winter. We have only got a few weeks left to rock this one and it definitely is not easy. This is one trend where the rules are worth following, and StyleCaster has done a really good job creating this guide.
