I hope you are all doing well!
Sorry for not posting an OOTW for this week that just passed – we had a culture show at our school so everyone was wearing cultural outfits for 2-3 days from the week hah!
But this week I decided to take outfit inspiration from celebrity fashion! Often we see celebrities walking down the red carpet in glamorous gowns that we just adore from a far or even when they are just taking a stroll around town, we wish we could mimic their style! Well, it’s not rocket science!! :))
This week is a little bit of a weird week in terms of weather here in Canada. The weekend was absolutely amazingly perfect. Sunny, gorgeous, hot (but not too hot), and the perfect amount of breeze flowing through my hijab (LOL!). But, unfortunately, this Spring weather won’t last 🙁 Today it’s rainy and tomorrow it might snow? LIKE WHAT?!
Anyways, the biggest dilemma is that what season do we dress from – Winter with our overworn boots and cute sweaters or in bright spring colours that makes us look like an outcast with nature?! (Just kidding this isn’t the biggest dilemma but you know what I mean – #firstworldproblems :P).
Anyway, Actress Keri Russel’s (from Bedtime Stories and Wonder Woman) outfit was perfect for the confused weather! It was a perfect transition from Winter into Spring and this is a great way to incorporate some of your winter clothes into your spring/summer wardrobe! Don’t leave them out – you can still add a piece here and there so you’re always wearing all of your clothes!
Here’s her outfit – I love the colour combination! The dark purple/plum, white jeans, and beige-gray shoes go perfectly together! She even added a scarf into her look, as if she knew that us hijabis would be taking inspiration from this outfit :’)
For my outfit, I had a perfect dark purple sweater from H&M. I paired it with my white jeans, which I normally find hard to style but was definitely excited to wear them after so long, and some brown-gray jewelled loafers. I was too tired of wearing boots and I wanted to pretend that Spring really was here 😛 Instead of wearing a brown and purple hijab, I decided to wear a more colourful hijab only because I didn’t want my version of the outfit to be too dull. This half purple-half magenta hijab is super cute and the coral trim really adds a nice pop of colour and freshness! For accessories, I just turned to my trusty Aldo watch (which, if you haven’t noticed, is the same watch with different straps haha!) and my rose gold ‘BLESSED’ bracelet from BCBG. I also just added a cognac colored satchel, which I think really works together with everything! I really liked how it all turned out :))
I know its super simple and nothing ‘amazing’ to take ‘inspiration’ from but I think its the simple outfits like these that we never think to pair together!
My second outfit is a mix between two very similar outfits! I have a red blazer but don’t really wear it that often anymore. My goal for this year is to really make a lot of use out of my clothes and actually wear everything! So when I saw these outfits, it was perfect for me! I love how hijabi Nicole Richie’s outfit is! (bottom right) Unfortunately, I didn’t have the wide leg jeans so I went with Jamie Chung’s straight jeans! (bottom left). I also really wanted to make a DIY for her “Celfie” shirt but unfortunately didn’t get the time as I have been studying for exams. BUT…comment down below if you’d like a DIY on graphic tees :)) I decided to go with Richie’s chiffon button down instead. Both were wearing black heels which I think would look super cute but I decided to go with flats to be more practical for school. Their outfits are literally so similar so we definitely know that this outfit will be a hit!
Here’s my version! I also decided to wear a black and white tribal print hijab which I think sealed the outfit. And of course, can’t forget some hijab jewels too! 😉 This gold and black chain headband compliments the gold watch and the outfit too! (just realized you can’t see the watch in the pictures but I promise I’m wearing one LOL)
I hope you like my outfits! If you have any other celebrity outfits you would like us to recreate, leave a link to the picture in the comments!!
