Party Looks Inspired by Fashion Icons
Regardless of whether you like to experiment with the latest trends or tend to stick to a personal uniform, parties are a great opportunity to get adventurous with your look and stand out. One way to get outfit ideas is to emulate recent looks from the red carpet and the runway. Stylists and designers, who are responsible for creating red carpet and runway looks, often cite fashion icons as a source of inspiration. Sometimes designers mix the signature style of multiple fashion icons to synthesize something new. Also, it’s not uncommon to see a celebrity wearing a “modern day take” on a fashion icon’s signature look on the red carpet. For example, the look Rihanna wore when she accepted her CDFA Style Icon Award was inspired by a Dianna Ross look.
But why should stylists and designers have all the fun? Why not get your outfit ideas straight from the source and cultivate your own take on a fashion icon’s signature look. And by the way, you can up the creativity factor and really make a look your own by mixing and matching elements of different icons’ looks. For example, you can add punk rock inspired accessories to a tux to create a standout look that will be unforgettable. And best of all, it will be a look you curated—which really is the difference between being a follower of trends and a trendsetter.
