When it comes to mastering the art of whimsy, itâ€™s all about challenging the status quo. Truly one of the most individualistic styles out there, it takes a dash of colour, splashes of patterns, a shot of rule-breaking, and a whole lot of confidence and attitude.
Hereâ€™s how four of my favourite fashion icons are magnificently acing their own take of whimsical style!
The It-Girl from the 90s has been making a comeback with her raw and eclectic sense of style. The Boys Donâ€™t Cry actress has garnered love from designers, stylists and the general fashion crowd for her unique fashion, and has been designing collections for the delightfully bold and whimsical label, Opening Ceremony. Sequins, floral wreaths, and even a straw pork pie hat? Count on ChlÃ¶e to make it work.
Watch any of her performances, and youâ€™ll be convinced Katy Perry rules whimsical and bold fashion with her utterly imaginative outfits. Off-stage, Katy tones down a little, but loses none of her whimsical appeal. How? Just make sure you have a headband on, coloured tresses, prints and patterns, a quirky bag, and some statement heels; yes, all together at once.
The stylist, designer, and overall queen of boho-chic blurs the line between whimsy and hippie fashion with her dreamy, ethereal flowy dresses and skirts in both her personal style and her fashion collections. Pair up printed kaftans, florals, and maxi skirts with chic arm candy from Gucci!
Whether you first knew of her in (500) Days of Summer, New Girl, or from her band She & Him, Zooeyâ€™s distinctive style choices is just as witty and cheery-eyed as her. Play up the 60s or go geek-chic with polka dots and rimmed glasses however you want, and add on a pair of glitzy, kitschy flats from Chiara Ferragni.
