How a Personal Stylist Creates Pinterest Inspired Outfits
Pinterest can be a great tool to help us get out of style ruts, reinvent our wardrobes and get inspired to try new things.
I think some of us have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest. The problem is we often feel intimidated or discouraged by what we see on Pinterest because we don’t look like the people in the photos or we don’t have the exact same things as pictured in an outfit.
So we stop there and continue our cycle of frustration and discouragement with our wardrobe and outfits.
Forget about trying to do it perfectly or copying the outfits exactly. That will get you nowhere and keep you in a style rut. Instead use Pinterest as inspiration not direct translation.
Consider the concept of “reverse engineering” the outfit and break it down into its components. Does the outfit include layering? Does it have a pop of color? Are the pieces items you already have? Breaking the outfit down into its pieces makes it easier and less overwhelming. It also removes the focus from having to copy the outfit or do it perfectly.
See how it’s done…
