Style tips from Marie Hindkear inspired by FarfetchWednesday, 22 June 2016
So I am so happy to share a post inspired by Farfetch about some great style tips by the amazing stylish Marie Hindkear from Blame it on fashion I mean who has not heard about it ?!
Marie Hindkear lives in Copenhagen, love Parisian style and rocks a contemporary and simplistic style.
How would you describe your style ?
A mix of high and low pieces. I like to think of my style as being effortless, contemporary, Scandinavian, often with a boyish twist. I love playing with textures and silhouettes.
What is your absolute favourite item in your wardrobe ?
A patchwork-like Louis Vuitton bag that makes even the simplest outfit stand out. I especially love wearing it with denim or a plain jumpsuit.
Why do you think style is important ?
Fashion reflects society while style reflects personality. Great style can be many things it's nor about following trends, it's about discovering who you are and what suits you. To me feeling confident in what I wear is key to great style
Does being a fashion blogger impact the way you dress ?
Definitely. I love to inspire others, and being a fashion blogger surely makes me think more about how I dress. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel and I like my style to be wearable and accessible. If you want to succeed and inspire as a fashion blogger I think it's important to be authentic.
Do you plan your wardrobe in advance for each season ? And if so, how do you go about planning it ?
I do a lot of trend and shopping guides for my website and therefore research the trends in advance of a new season. I don't make myself a shopping list but it helps me locate my favourite trends and pieces. I usually update my wardrobe with a few statement pieces that works with what I've already got in my closet. And then new shoes.
How do you style a look for special occasion ? Do you start with a 'look' in mind, or do you style your look around a key piece ?
Most times I style my look around a key piece that I've decided to wear for the occasion. It can be a dress or a skirt, or even a pair of shoes. I recently went to ELLE style Awards here in Copenhagen, and my look actually started with a pair of silver statement earrings by Miami. I was supposed to wear something completely different but then I got the earrings, and ended up changing the entire outfit because of them.
What is the best style advice you have ever been given, read or heard ?
Coco Chanel once said that it's always better to be underdressed. I totally agree. She also said that before leaving the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off. I keep that in mind when in doubt if I've accessorised a little too much.
As a personal style blogger, what words of wisdom would you share with other fashion lovers ?
Be genuine and have fun.
