Recently we are seeing more and more in the news about British supermodel Cara Delevingne and how she is quitting modeling…again. But why? Cara has always been outspoken about her dislike for the industry and her honestly ironically has made her even more wanted by designers and those pulling the strings in the industry itself.
But what is we love so much about her? Her care free, give a s*** attitude and her style. So we thought it only right that we introduce a little Cara style to you and your wardrobe. The key though here is, that although Cara’s personal style is something to be admired and definitely worth taking inspiration from, it is not to be copied. Why? Well, in an ironic twist, what Cara stands for is individuality. She was quoted as saying “Everyone has the right to be whoever they want to be”. So whilst taking inspiration and following a few simple style rules is fine, you should stay true to your own style and be yourself.
Cara Delevingne Street Style in a Nutshell
Choose pretty dresses, that are strappy and elegant but in prints such as tartan. Think about textures and layering. Layer a T-Shirt over if it is a little colder out or just for a different look. There are so many t-shirts out there with slogans and messages on, there is pretty much something to suit every mood and express what you are feeling.
Consider adding even more tartan to your look and head to a vintage shop to find a big baggy tartan shirt. A tartan shirt is multi-functional, if it’s big enough, wear it as a dress teamed with biker boots or your white converse OR just wear it around your waist to create more layers to your look.
The Wish List
– Tartan in ANY form
– Black angle boots, awesome trainers or converse
– Beanie and statement sunnies
– Strappy little dress
– Basic T-Shirt with something magical, awesome or rude on it
